We go above and beyond to care for the whole person. The Adult Day Program at the Victoria Chinatown Care Centre provides community-based services for the physical and social needs of individuals who are living at home and need daytime assistance and socialization.
The program also serves individuals experiencing both physical and cognitive difficulties (dementia including Alzheimer’s), chronic health conditions or life-long physical impairments. The program focuses on promoting health, socialization with peers, well-being, and independence through a variety of small and large group therapeutic activities.
Our programs provide residents with the opportunity to interact in an inviting community setting. Culturally based programs and activities are offered Tuesday to Saturday, 10:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and are customized based on interests and on individual need. Expansion of our activity program is currently underway and we hope to be adding evening activities and outings to our list of offerings. All programs include supervision, assistance with transportation to and from the Centre, a light meal and snack, therapeutic activities, and referral to case management and social work services as needed. Care is delivered in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English.
