Dearness Home is a long-term care home, owned and operated by the City of London. We are also members of OANHSS (Ontario Association of Not for Profit Homes and Services for Seniors).

For over 50 years, we strive to develop innovative ways of meeting the needs of our residents and putting their goals first. Living at Dearness is enhanced by the respect we show for our residents, their families, friends, volunteers, staff and the community that we serve. Our staff is comprised of men and women from various cultural backgrounds reflecting the diversity of our community and improving our ability to converse with our residents.

As a public representative of the City of London, we occupy a position of trust.

The Dearness Adult Day Program offers a wide range of recreational programs and personal care supports in a safe and friendly environment to individuals who have difficulty accessing other social programs in the community, as well as relief for caregivers who may need it. 

Dearness Adult Day Program & Wellness Centre

Our Adult Day Program offers a welcoming, client-centered program designed to support and engage individuals who may need assistance with physical frailty, disability or chronic illness.  Some of our clients live with caregivers who are working, others with caregivers who need some relief and still others live independently but enjoy an opportunity to socialize and participate in activities such as:

•    Specialized Therapies such as Pet, Music and Art
•    Exercise Programs and Snoezelen Therapy
•    Discussion groups
•    Games (Wii)/Baking/Trivia
•    Musical Entertainment & Theme Days
•    Wi Fi & Computer training

Open Monday to Friday, our program fee includes assistance with personal care, all recreational programming, a hot 3 course lunch as well as transportation to and from the program.  Additional services such as a whirlpool bath and foot care can be accessed at our program.  

Our program is organized by qualified staff and assisted by our registered volunteers.  Funding for the Adult Program is provided under an Accountability Agreement with the South West Local Health Integration Network.

Access to this program is through the Community Care Access Centre.
