Who We Are
Trinity Village Adult Day Program is a not for profit community outreach support service, operating since October 2008. Located in “The Gathering Place” multipurpose area of the main Care Centre, Adult Day Program participants have their own entrance which is accessed beside the “Day Program” garden.
We offer a safe, respectful and healthy atmosphere for adults who are 55 and older, with a chronic illness, physical disability or memory loss. We provide a balance of social, physical, and cognitive stimulating activities in a cheerful, accessible and friendly environment, while assisting to help maintain or enhance independence and self-esteem. Our program also allows respite and support for care partners, and provides information and referral to other community services and programs.
Our educated, trained, experienced and dedicated staff consists of: Program Co-ordinator, 4 recreation therapists, and one personal support worker.
Community volunteers as well as educational volunteers (nursing, recreation, gerontology) contribute their generous skills and time to support staff and participants. We welcome volunteers for one or several days per week. (Photo)
