What is an Adult Day Program?

The Good Companions Adult Day Support Program is a therapeutic, social, and recreational service for seniors who require some minimal assistance with day-to-day activities. The program is funded by the City of Ottawa Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and United Way/Centraide Ottawa

The Adult Day Support Program is designed to:

  • enhance well-being by providing social, physical and mental stimulation in a supportive group environment
  • strengthen the ability to remain independent for as long as possible
  • provide respite to caregivers

 

The Program Offers:

  • opportunities to socialize and form friendships
  • intellectual stimulation in the form of quizzes, health education, discussion groups, question-and-answer periods
  • social activities in the form of games, crafts, films, sing-a-longs and speakers or entertainers
  • recreational activities and chair exercises
  • a nutritious lunch and refreshments; arrangements for special diets are possible
  • non-denominational religious service
  • counselling and referral services
  • information, referral, advocacy and support

Other In-House services are also available. Please check our In-House Services page for more information. OC Transpo bus passes, bus tickets, and stamps are also available for purchase at our Front Reception desk.
