Adult Day Program

Adult Day Program

The VON Adult Day Program benefits adults with Alzheimer Disease, dementia or cognitive impairment living in the community. The daily programming is based on the principles of Montessori Methods for Dementia to provide a safe, error free environment where the focus is on the individual abilities and not the disabilities. The program provides social, therapeutic and recreational activities with a hot lunch, snacks and refreshments. The program benefits the caregivers with daytime respite and caregiver support ongoing as needed.

Activities are planned to improve cognitive function, mobility/strength and delay or prevent admission to a nursing home. Assistance is provided with activities of daily living including toileting, incontinent care, and medication reminders. Clients are observed daily by staff for any changes so the caregivers can contact the family MD to avoid Emergency Room visits.

The fee of $15.00 per day includes a hot lunch, snacks, refreshments and outings in the summer months as weather permits. Additional "free" services include Blood Pressure screening, clipping/filing of fingernails, and Foot Care. Flu Clinics are scheduled in the fall on site for clients and family.

Transportation is the responsibility of the family and can be purchased through Red Cross or Lambton Elderly Outreach if the caregiver is unable to drive the client to the program.

Program hours: Monday to Friday 9 to 3. Closed on statutory holidays and during Christmas holidays.
