Caring for Caregivers
Caregivers often operate under significant stress, and our respite care can help ease their daily demands by providing a time-limited break for families or other unpaid caregivers. Participants will be cared for in a medically supported social environment, allowing caregivers to attend their other daily needs. We also provide education, resources and support groups for caregivers.
The dietary menu at Adult Day Center has been developed by registered dietitians. Our menu provides Participants with balanced, nutritious meal. Just like at home, different menu options are available to accommodate the needs of our Participants.
- January Dietary Menu
- December Dietary Menu
- November Dietary Menu
- October Dietary Menu
