The Views is pleased to offer an Adult Day Program. Located in the former hospital lobby, the program can accommodate eight participants each day, Monday to Friday. The day program is a great way to prevent caregiver burnout.
The cost is $6/day.
The program supports caregivers in caring for a frail senior at home who may require supervision and assistance during the day. The day program is a great way to prevent caregiver burnout by providing a reprieve from the stresses of providing care to get some rest, socialize with others, or attend to other personal priorities.
Program participation may also enable your loved one to remain at home longer, delaying admission to long-term care. Involvement in social activities in a safe environment may also keep your loved one more independent.
As with any new activity, adjusting to a new activity in a new setting may take your loved one some time. Try not to give up too soon. Most participants eventually enjoy the program and start to thrive in it.
