Our Adult Day Services (ADS) program provides a place for participants to go each day for engaging activities and social interaction. Many participants have reduced physical or cognitive abilities. This program allows them to live at home longer. Our philosophy is to provide person-centered care.
Adult Day Services lets families and caregivers:
- Take a break.
- Attend to their daily errands and their own physical/emotional needs.
- Maintain a healthier work/life balance.
- Keep working.
- Access caregiver support.
- Connect with other service providers.
We believe that:
- everyone plays an important role in the participant's ADS journey.
- participants, caregivers, and families can add great value to the care team.
Our focus is to:
- improve the health care experience and outcomes for participants, caregivers, and families.
- work with participants, caregivers, and families to identify and achieve their goals.
- Helping participants maintain their best possible physical and cognitive functionality.
- Promoting personal dignity and self-esteem by encouraging independence.
- Providing a safe, secure, and stimulating environment for care.
- Supporting participants, their caregivers, and families to be involved in their care and decisions.
To achieve these goals, we use a variety of tools and processes including:
- Care coordination
- Care conferences
- Referral and coordination of appropriate services and programs in the community
- Programs and services that meet each participant’s needs
- Information and education that supports caregivers

Enhanced services and personal care assistance
We help participants with activities of daily living including:
- Oral care
- Using the washroom
- Restorative programs
Our trained support workers provide personal care assistance.
Physiotherapy is available to those who have consented to participate. We provide a daily exercise program for all participants. The physiotherapy team and the ADS team work together on programs and treatments geared to maintaining or improving the participant’s strength, balance, and flexibility, and in reducing the risk of falls.
Foot care services are available by a certified foot care practitioner. This is a fee-for-service program.
We can arrange for participants to attend dental clinics on site, by referral. This clinic is available through the Region of Peel’s long term care program.
We can arrange for participants to attend optometry clinics onsite. There may be fees associated with this service.
Salon and barber services
Salon and barber services are available at various times throughout the week on a fee-for-service basis. If you wish to make an appointment, please ask our staff.
In a safe and accessible shower room, participants get help from support workers with bathing or showering, basic nail care, and personal grooming. Participants who are interested in this service can contact the supervisor.
Immunization for seasonal flu
Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory infection that spreads easily through coughing, sneezing, or by touching contaminated surfaces or objects.
The flu can spread easily where people gather, such as in long term care and ADS programs. This is especially concerning because older adults may have weakened immune systems. We encourage participants to get their flu shots annually. We offer flu clinics at all our ADS locations to make it easier to beat the flu.
If participants have received a flu shot from a doctor or other provider, you can provide copy of the immunization record to the ADS supervisor.
These services are offered as part of our regular ADS program activities. They do not require an additional fee.
Meals and snacks
We provide a nutritious meal and snacks to all participants. We can assist during mealtimes if required.
Participants and their caregivers are responsible for getting to and from ADS. If this is not possible, the ADS supervisor can link the participant to transportation options such as TransHelp, Seniors Ride Connect through CANES Community Services or Caledon Community Services.
Please contact TransHelp or Caledon Community Services Transportation for more information.
The Telephone Companion Program is a free service offered by Peel’s Community Support Services and Volunteer Resources team to support older adults experiencing feelings of isolation and loneliness during the pandemic.
As part of the Telephone Companion Program, dedicated and trained volunteers make friendly check-in phone calls to older adults in Peel to provide engagement and stimulation through social conversations. Volunteers are matched with clients of similar interests or backgrounds, so they can have fun and meaningful conversations.
If your loved one or you could benefit from these weekly phone calls, please email email@example.com or call Janet Hobson at 437-224-8759, Mabel Oppong-Agyei at 437-236-5843 or Fang Xu at 437-224-8932 for further information.
Caregivers often struggle with balancing the daily tasks of caring for their loved one while managing the responsibilities in meeting the needs of their family. In collaboration with team members of the program and other health care professionals, they will help deliver or promote:
- Caregiver support, education, and counselling through the health care spectrum
- Therapeutic counselling onsite, via telephone or in a support group education format for both participant and caregivers
- Education on the resources and services available to enhance client autonomy
- Advance care planning discussions
- Referrals to other health professionals as appropriate
- Advocacy on behalf of the client and/or the caregiver
To meet or speak with the social worker, please notify the ADS staff or supervisor to make a referral or contact the social worker directly.
