Enrich Quality of Life Through Adult Day Programs
Adult Day Programs
Goldie’s Place Adult Day Program is a social based program where “community happens”.
Our participants come to play a game of cards, connect with a friend over coffee, sing along to musical entertainment, get moving during an exercise class and enjoy a warm and nutritious meal. The staff at Goldie’s Place are available to assist with a variety of care needs including 1 person assistance with transfers and toileting and cueing for medication reminders.
Our program is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm And has been designed to provide respite for loved ones from their caregiver role.
Adult Day Program activities are flexible and varied to meet the diverse needs of our participants. Staff include health and rehabilitation professionals. Social and health promotion programs are provided in concert with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Adult Day Program standards.
Residents and participants have access to the many services available, including The Club Fitness Centre, Bubbi Bessie’s Café and The Classic Theatre. By participating in stimulating activities, Goldie’s participants’ quality of life is enriched and their scope of experiences is expanded.
Referrals to the Adult Day Program are made through the Home and Community Care team. To get connected call 905-523-8600.
