The Perley Health Adult Day Program

The Perley Health Adult Day Program is open to seniors 55 years and older living 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. 

The program closed at the start of the pandemic, in accordance with the Ontario government directive and re-opened July 2021 as a pilot project in the Guest House. On April 27, 2022, the program returned to its location in the main building of Perley Health.
