Medical mask policy in effect during respiratory illness season
Masks are currently required in all patient care areas of hospitals, long-term care facilities and community health-care sites and clinics. Please do not enter these facilities if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, such as runny nose, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath/trouble breathing, diarrhea or vomiting. Do not enter these facilities if you feel unwell, no matter how mild the symptoms.
Visitors to long-term care and seniors’ assisting living facilities need to wear a medical mask in common areas and when participating in indoor events in common areas.
Thank you for helping keep patients and staff healthy this season.
Adult Day Programs provide older adults who may have physical and/or memory challenges or who are living with a chronic illness with supportive, culturally inclusive health, social stimulation and therapeutic recreational programs in their community.
How to access
- People aged 60 to 65+ years with a diagnosis of dementia (or younger if living with an early onset dementia) who also live with complex and chronic medical and/or mental health issues.
- The lower stimulation environment at Youville may benefit clients with dementia or a mental health diagnosis. At times Youville can provide adult day program services for clients with mild-moderate behavioural needs which can not be accommodated in another program.
- A wheelchair-accessible washroom and sit-to-stand lift are available to assist with clients' increased physical care needs.
- When organized, the Licensed Practical Nurse can administer medications while attending the program.
- City-wide catchment.
