Vancouver Coastal Health, Adult Day Programs, provide seniors and people with disabilities with supportive, culturally inclusive health care services, social stimulation and therapeutic recreational programs in their community.

What to expect

People who attend Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) Adult Day Programs travel to a location near them one to two days per week where they are met by a host of knowledgeable and caring staff offering many services, such as:

  • therapeutic social and recreational activities,
  • special events and seasonal celebrations,
  • falls prevention education and movement classes,
  • health status monitoring (weight, blood pressure, and nutrition),
  • dementia support and pain management, and
  • caregiver support including respite and education.

Clients can expect to be warmly welcomed with a morning refreshment before the start of the day's events. A hot meal is served at noon, followed by additional programming and activities prior to returning home by HandyDART or other transportation. Throughout the day, there are many opportunities to get active and stay connected.

Adult Day Programs partner with clients and families while they are building skills, fostering friendships, and experiencing the communities they live in.

Adult Day Programs generally operate weekdays and some offer weekends.
