Most people don’t understand how stressful it can be looking after someone who has dementia.
Our Day Program provides a supportive “day away” for people living with dementia. Clients enjoy a day of activities designed to enhance their well-being, all while providing their caregivers with a day of respite.
Our staff have extensive experience caring for people with dementia. Supported by dedicated volunteers, program staff members work to ensure a safe and caring environment

Respite Adult Day programs provide social and other therapeutic activities at a location outside your home.
Respite Care Programs usually include planned recreation and physical activities, meals, transportation to the Respite Care program and some personal care. Our consumer fee for this Respite Care service which covers the meals and transportation costs is approximately $10 per day.
The first step for becoming part of the Adult Day Program is to determine your eligibility.
A Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) Long Term Care Case Manager will determine if a person qualifies for this program. You may be eligible if you are:
- a Home & Community Care client and have a Long Term Care Case Manager
If you do not currently have a VIHA Long Term Care Case Manager, you can get more information by phoning the Vancouver Island Health Authority — 250-951-9550.
