Carefor  - Perley Adult Day Program

adult day

The Day Program promotes a sense of fun, accomplishment, body awareness and positive self-esteem for individuals living with dementia.  Caregivers enjoy a day of much-needed respite knowing their loved ones are in good hands. 

We typically begin with a coffee/tea and muffins and a conversation about life experiences, current events and any topic of specific interest to the clients. The program is flexible and clients take part in activities tailored to their functional ability and interests. Clients can choose from a variety of options including:

  • cards
  • billiards
  • board games
  • gardening 
  • handicrafts
  • woodworking
  • baking
  • music
  • and more

The day also includes a 30-45 minute exercise program with warm-up, stretching, mild cardio-vascular activity and cool down.


If caregivers are unable to drive their loved ones to and from the Day Program, Carefor will try to provide transportation. Clients are usually picked up between 8:00 and 9:00 am and are returned home between 2:45 and 3:30 pm. A family member or designate must be there to meet the client at the end of the day. There is a daily transportation fee.
