    Slide 1:Community Care Services Adult Day Centres

    Adult day programs assist seniors and adults with disabilities to continue to live in their own homes by providing supportive group programs and activities that assist with daily activities or give clients a chance to be more involved in their community.

They may include: personal care services, such as bathing programs and administering medications; therapeutic recreation and social activities; caregiver respite, education and support; and in some centres, meals and transportation may also be provided or arranged.

    Crossreach is a non-profit society, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, that provides services to seniors. Crossreach operates an adult day centre which provides a safe setting, social interaction and other programs for seniors able to remain at home alone during the day or who would otherwise be deprived of contact with others, and also provides respite for caregivers. We are committed to supporting the independent living of seniors and improving their lifestyle, so that seniors can age in place for as long as they are able to. We are located at 3348 West Broadway, in our own building, which was specifically designed for adults. We provide a smoke-free environment in bright, spacious and wheelchair accessible premises. We have a commercial kitchen in which our professional chef prepares healthy, nutritionally-balanced snacks and meals. Our dining facility can seat up to 60 people, and can be booked for private events. Membership in Crossreach is available to anyone for an annual fee of $25.

    Slide 9:Community Care Services Caregiver Relief/Respite

    Many people receiving home and community care services are assisted by non-professional caregivers, often a friend or family member. Respite care can give the caregiver temporary relief from the emotional and physical demands of caring for a friend or family member. It gives caregivers the opportunity to join in community activities, while renewing their energies so they may continue to provide quality care.

    Slide 10:Community Care Services Caregiver Relief/Respite

    Respite may take the form of a service in the client's home. Or, the client may be admitted, on a short-term basis, to a residential care facility, hospice or other community care setting. Caregivers may also take a break while the client attends an adult day centre or is receiving home support services.

    Slide 11:Community Care Services Assisted Living

    Assisted living residences provide housing, hospitality services and personalized assistance services for adults who can live independently but require regular assistance with daily activities, usually because of age, illness or disabilities. Support services promote occupants' independence, while involving family and friends in their care. Assisted living residences combine building features and services that enable people to remain in their community as long as they are able to self-direct their own care. They maximize independence, while promoting choice, self-direction and dignity.

    Slide 12:Community Care Services Assisted Living

    Housing Assisted living residences can range from a highrise apartment complex to a private home. Units can vary from one room to private, self-contained apartments. Residences may be located on their own or housed with other residential options, such as supportive housing (for people with lower care needs) or residential care.
