Adult Day Program

Please note: Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, our team has made the decision to close the Adult Day Program at Ocean View until further notice.

Ocean View’s Adult Day Program provides support to seniors in our community who feel isolated, unchallenged, or disconnected; but who are not in need of complex medical supports.

The Program is coordinated by trained recreation therapy staff, who thoughtfully and strategically plan activities aimed at:
• helping participants sustain life skills, both physical and cognitive, supporting their ability to stay at home as long as possible; and
• reducing loneliness and isolation by creating a welcoming environment for socializing.

Read our feature story, Jack’s Journey, to learn more about how the program benefits participants and their families.

The program also provides respite for the family caregiver, so they can enjoy some personal time, while their loved one is safe in an engaging environment. This program is suited for adults, age 50+, who have a medical diagnosis such as, but not limited to:

  • Social Isolation
  • Dementia
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Who are physically frail
