Brighton Adult Day Program Grand Re-opening

Drop-in For The Grand Re-opening Of The Brighton Adult Day Program
The VON serving Hastings, Northumberland & Prince Edward counties would like to extend an invitation to residents of the Brighton area to attend our Grand Re-opening at our Adult Day Program on Thursday April 27th between 10am and 2pm. Caregivers and their loved ones will have the opportunity to visit the site to learn about the services and receive a half-day of respite at no charge. The program is located at Unit 9 - 46 Prince Edward Street in Brighton. . 

Staff will be on-site to respond to inquiries and to engage individuals, living with cognitive or physical health conditions, in social and recreational activities. Our Brighton Adult Day program currently operates Tuesday through Thursday with vacancy for new participants.  

The Adult Day Program provides supervised programming in a group setting. The service assists clients to achieve and maintain their maximum level of functioning to prevent premature or inappropriate placement in long term care facilities. “The program provides social stimulation in a safe environment where clients can interact with their peers, and caregivers receive a period of respite”, says Angela Robinson, Community Support Services Manager at VON.

Funding is provided in part by the Southeast Local Health Integration Network, community donations and a small daily client fee. However, subsidies are available if required. The regular fee for services is $16.00 per day which includes refreshments, a nourishing meal and program supplies.  

For registration and information, please contact Petra Lepage, Respite Services 
Supervisor at 1-888-279-4866 extension 5305.
