Social Programs


ADULT DAY PROGRAM (ADP)

The Adult Day Program provides supervised individual programming in a group setting for older adults, who may be physically frail, cognitively impaired and/or socially isolated. Our program is designed to assist participants in achieving and maintaining their maximum level of functioning, to prevent premature and inappropriate institutionalization and to provide respite and information for caregivers. Program elements include planned social, recreational and physical activities, snacks and lunch. Transportation is available upon request.

Please note that an in-home interview is required to determine eligibility. For information please contact ROSSS at 613-692-4697 or 613-821-1101 or email info@rosss.ca
