Day Centre

What is adult day care?

Our adult day care is a planned program of activities in a professional care setting designed for older adults who require supervised care during the day, or those who are isolated and lonely. This day care centre enables seniors to socialise and enjoy planned activities in a group setting, while still receiving needed health services. At the same time, they offer family caregivers respite from caregiving duties while knowing that their loved one is in a safe place.

The centre is open from 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday.

The primary intent of our day care centre is two-fold:

  • To provide older adults an opportunity to get out of the house and receive both mental and social stimulation, as well as the continuing care they need
  • To give caregivers a much-needed break in which to work, attend to personal needs, or simply to rest and relax.

Whether you’re looking at day care services for yourself or an older adult you’re caring for, these tips can help you find the center that best fits your needs..

Contact us on (04) 567 1026 to discuss availability or to be assessed as a volunteer driver.

Planned activities tend to be tailored to the participants’ abilities and health conditions, but may encompass such things as arts and crafts, musical entertainment and sing-a-longs, mental stimulation games such as bingo, stretching or other gentle exercise, discussion groups (for books, films, or current events, for example), holiday and birthday celebrations, and local outings.

Center staff can help with the activities of daily living such as grooming, toilet hygiene, walking, and feeding.

Some adult day care centers provide transportation to and from the center and for any local outings.
