FIND YOUR BALANCE – ADULT DAY PROGRAM
Come share a laugh, good food, great company and a variety of activities in the warm and relaxed atmosphere of the Promise House at Stonebridge Haven.
The program runs on Thursdays from 10 am to 3:30 pm and is geared for those still living independently but needing some level of support and wanting to maintain their quality of life and cognitive functions.
The day begins with a light snack and some social time before the program begins. Participants are encouraged to join in at whatever level they are comfortable. Each day there will be activities to support social, physical, emotional and cognitive functions with a nutritional, seasonally appropriate and of course delicious lunch provided.

Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors emphasizes independence, activity and good health.
The report states “Seniors have contributed to our growth and prosperity and continue to help build our communities and drive our economy. We have heard from seniors that they want to be recognized for these contributions, and treated as important members of society…
We want Ontario seniors to feel safe and supported, and to remain healthy and independent for as long as possible. We want them to remain active and engaged wherever possible, so they are able to continue to achieve excellence as they grow older. With the right plan in place, one that includes supports for caregivers and families, seniors can have all of these things.”
