What is an Adult Day Program?

The Good Companions Adult Day 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, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and United Way East Ontario.

The Adult Day Program is designed to:

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

The  Program Offers:

  • opportunities to socialize and form friendships
  • intellectual stimulation in the form of quizzes and discussion groups
  • individualized programming and social activities in the form of Bingo, crafts, puzzles, art therapy, painting and therapeutic pets
  • individualized activity kits will be provided for members
  • chair exercises, chair yoga and Motiview by MOTITECH
  • a nutritious lunch and 2 snacks per day; arrangements for special diets are possible
  • non-denominational chapel service
  • referral services as required
