Adult Day Program

Adult Day Program

Helping seniors stay active, sociable and healthy

In September 2012, Wing Kei introduced the Adult Day Program (ADP), an initiative geared towards creating opportunities for socialization, recreational activities and health monitoring for seniors who live at home.  Each client has an individualized care plan, created together by the client/family members and our Care department, to meet his/her care needs.  Despite the short duration of time since the launch of the program, we have witnessed an immense improvement in our clients’ mental, physical and social abilities.

 

The Adult Day Program comprises of two programs:

"My mother has nothing but praise about the exercise classes, various activities like making crafts, guest speakers, food etc, but most of all the love and excellence in care extended to her as well as for the other clients.  My family and I would like to thank the staff of Adult Day Program for making a difference in her life.  She is thriving and happy!"
