On March 25th, Centres d’Accueil Héritage (CAH) officially inaugurated the Adult Day Program in French in Oshawa. This service was created following a recommendation submitted by Entité 4 to the Central East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). The Adult Day Program for francophone seniors is the result of a collaborative effort between CAH, Entité 4, L’Amicale, ACFO Durham-Peterborough and Club Jeunesse d’hier.
Joyce Irvine, Centre d’Accueil Héritage’s Board Chair and Wayne Gladstone, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Central East LHIN cut the ribbon after addressing the audience on the importance of helping seniors stay healthy as long as possible through community programs.
This new Adult Day Program is offered two days a week and provides social and recreational activities in French as well as supervised physical exercises sessions overseen by professional staff specially trained for seniors who are experiencing physical or cognitive difficulties.
The event was a great success.
