Dignified Day Open House Showcases Services
March 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Dignified Day Open House
The need for adult day programs within Windsor/Essex County is becoming increasingly clear to all families who have adult loved ones living with developmental disabilities. Dignified Day hopes to raise awareness for these needs, help as many families as possible, whilst showcasing their new facilities in an open house.
While there are multiple organizations available for adults with disabilities, many are at capacity or have very specific criteria for their clients. Dignified Day accepts all adults with developmental disabilities, and has capacity to take on more clientele. To address this, the Dignified Day open house is for all families in the Windsor Essex community that are interested in learning more about the services they provide.
The need for more adult day programs within Windsor was made clear to the owners of Dignified Day through speaking to other similar organizations, as well as parents that have children with disabilities. “Although there are many great programs in the city, it seems most of them have a wait list. It was nice finding a program for our child that immediately provided us the care and relief we needed,” says Susan, a parent to a client at Dignified Day. As Dignified Day continues to grow and expand, they want to ensure all Windsorites are aware of their services, making sure they are able to help all families in need.
Services provided at Dignified Day include:
- Teaching independent life skills
- Programs catering to individual client needs
- Leisure activities of both the therapeutic and recreational nature
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Nutritional meals made on-site daily by a Red Seal certified chef
- Bathing and spa services
Dignified Day is an adult day program that offers personalized care and programming to individuals with developmental delays, spectrum disorders, or other intellectual disabilities. The aim of the program is to provide these individuals with the benefits of mental and social stimulation, assistance with activities of daily living, and to provide caregivers daytime support services.
