Adult Day Program moves to new location

August 14, 2023 – The Adult Day Program opens at its new location today at 80 McGonigal Street West.

This will be the program’s new home during the Grove expansion project, and the staff and clients are excited about the move.

“The clients are really looking forward to being closer to stores like Giant Tiger, and close to local restaurants downtown. They’re looking forward to more shopping and more outing time,” says Michaela McClymont, Community Programs Coordinator.

The new location at the County of Renfrew building is within walking distance of all the Arnprior downtown core has to offer, which Michaela hopes will bring in new clients.

“There are so many more people – both clients and care partners – who could benefit from the program,” explains Michaela. “Clients who get to be in a safe and engaging environment, but also their care partners: spouses, children, siblings… they know their loved one is being well supported by our staff so they can take time for themselves.”

The program will continue as usual at the new location, offering elderly adults with disabilities and/or cognitive impairment social and recreation programs Monday through Friday. The list of activities is impressive: in August, activities range from yoga, darts, and bocce ball to trivia and Jeopardy, to unique craft activities like floral bouquet crafting and card creation.

Care partners or individuals who are interested in this program are encouraged to contact the Adult Day Program team at 613-622-5574 ext. 1 or email: [email protected]
