Service Highlights

  • Enhanced Easy Access to Services by operating 3 Adult Day Centres at convenient locations and delivering mobile adult day program activities in senior’s buildings in Scarborough and York Region. This year, the program has served over 678 individuals with different ethnicities, complexity of care needs and risk levels with a total of 27,451 attendance.
  • Extraordinary Progress in Transformation of the Adult Day Centre into an INTEGRATE Care Coordination Hub by expanding the wide spectrum of services including individualized assessment and care planning, care coordination and intervention, stimulation programs, recreation therapy, foot care, nutritional counseling, diabetes education and counseling, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, geriatric consultation, primary health care, vision care, homecare, behavioural and caregiver support along with the day program activities provided onsite in the day centre.
  • Revival of the Adult Day Program for Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Patients with the support from The Scarborough Hospital’s Renal Dialysis Centre. The ADP health care staff received training on how to take care of PD patients, especially in doing the PD process for them.  The initiative is for the purpose of re-opening the series of centre-based programs to PD patients, so that they can access adult day program and other centre-based programs/services offered.
  • Promoted Social Integration and Quality of Life by delivering client and family centred “wrap around bundled care” to ensure the seniors and caregivers can access a wellcoordinated “circle of care”. The services are made available to the seniors and families through the robust collaboration with other services teams, the Carefirst Family Health Team, and the Carefirst Specialist Clinic with the involvement of the family physicians and specialists for medical consultation.
