The PWC Adult Day Service provides part-of-the-day supervised programming in a group setting for dependent adults, such as the frail elderly, individuals with dementia, chronic health issues, or disabilities (complex care clients as defined in the Ministry of Health Services provincial policy). It is designed to meet the needs of clients who require supportive health care due to health, functional, or social issues. On-site support services may include leisure activities and meals.
This service is not designed to replace any medical or health professional services.
"One goal of providing this service in the community is to assist clients to remain independent in their homes as long as it is safe to do so, to provide respite to unpaid caregivers, to provide social and recreational activites in a safe setting, and to improve the quality of life and reduce isolation for clients"
-Christina MacMaster, PWC Executive Coordinator
