Adult Day Program

An Adult Day Program is provided at Perley Health, temporarily located in the Guest House. Please note that the Guest House respite program is closed at this time and not expected to open before Spring 2022.

Operated by Carefor Health and Community Services, the program is open to seniors 55 years and older with early to moderate stage Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias. Clients come to the program from their own homes to enjoy a day of stress-free socialization and fun while family caregivers have a few hours off. 

 A typical day at our Adult Day Program includes:

  • Social time
    • Activities like games, handicrafts and gardening
    • Exercise program
    • 3-course lunch
    • Occasional outings around the National Capital Region
