Even a few hours of respite can make all the difference in the world when you are caring for a loved one with high needs. There are several adult day programs available throughout the Mississauga Halton LHIN that provide your loved one with an opportunity to get out of the house and to meet other adults who share similar interests. The programs are delivered in a variety of settings and may provide recreational and social activities, meals, personal care and basic health care services that are tailored to your loved one’s needs. Given the programs are offered as partial or full days, the time your loved one spends in an adult day program is time you can use to take a much-needed break.
Access to adult day programs is coordinated through the Missississauga Halton Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). For more information about adult day programs and to find out if your loved one is eligible, visit the Mississauga Halton CCAC website or connect with a Respite Advisor at 905-281-4443 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss whether this or other options might best meet your needs.
