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:

  • Baking, crafts, hobbies

  • Cards and board games

  • Discussion groups, current events, reminiscence opportunities

  • Daily exercise sessions to maintain strength and mobility

  • Music and entertainment

  • Seasonal events and celebrations

  • Home cooked noon meal

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.

To become a client of the Adult Day Program contact our Respite Service Supervisor to learn more about our easy referral process at 1-866-654-9638 extension 6423 or 705-9155 extension 6423.
