|Victorian Order of Nurses Adult Day Program|
The Havelock Adult Day Program is designed to offer engagement and relaxation in a secure and home-like setting for older adults who may be experiencing physical, social or cognitive challenges. While enjoying a day away from home, their caregivers enjoy a day of respite to spend as they wish. Taking time to rejuvenate their energies, go to work or attend to those items that are on hold.
It has been proven that attending the Adult Day Program better supports clients to remain living in their own homes rather than early admissions to Long Term Care facilities as we work closely with family to better meet individual needs.
Our clients attend the Adult Day Program to participate in a variety of planned activities being supported by trained staff such as Recreation Therapists, Activationists, Personal Support Worker's and Volunteers. These activities are designed according to the individual interests and abilities of our clients and include:
Currently Victorian Order of Nurses operates eight Adult Day Programs across the region in communities such as Curve Lake, Lakefield, Peterborough, Havelock, Campbellford, Cobourg and Port Hope.
Funding for this program is provided in part by the Central East Local Health Integration Network, community donations and a small daily client fee. The regular client fee for services is $19.00 per day which includes refreshments, a nourishing meal and all activities. A fee subsidy is available where financial need is indicated.
