Adult Day Program - Overnight Respite

Caregiver relief is the primary goal of this program. Caring for someone with a dementia related disease such as Alzheimers can be a huge challenge particularly if that person exhibits behaviors such as wandering, pacing, repetitive actions or “sundowning”.

This service is designed to give up to a 30 hour break to their caregiver. The client remains at the day centre overnight after the regular program day has ended and stays until 3 pm the next day.

The familiar surroundings and experienced staff help to reduce any anxiety the client may feel. Caregivers are secure in the knowledge that their loved one is being well looked after in a safe, comfortable environment with a very high staff to client ratio. There are always two staff present and a maximum of three clients in the overnight program.  

This program is offered the second Friday night of each month in Goderich and the fourth Sunday night each month in Wingham. It is open to clients of all five Adult Day Program sites. Please contact your local day centre’s Supervisor for more information.”
