South Asian Day Program for Older Adults

Providing activities for older adults and respite for their caregivers

South Asian Day Program for Older Adults

Safe Seniors, Strong Communities 

The South Asian Day Program is for older adults who are:

  • living at home
  • experiencing life changes
  • wanting to be as healthy and as independent as possible

Our day program offers activities in a safe and caring social environment and gives caregivers time to care for their own needs.

We provide all our programs and services in Punjabi.

Staff work with the clients and caregivers as well as other healthcare professionals like Recreational Therapists, Healthcare Assistants and Nurses.  They work with clients’ Home Health Professionals to make a plan to keep clients as independent as possible.

Day Program Activities

Our activities focus on staying physically active, connecting with others, and keeping the brain active.

Activities might include:

  • Crafts, gardening
  • Sharing stories
  • Birthday and cultural celebrations
  • Table games, Bingo, word games
  • Reading
  • Cooking and baking
  • Learning to make food choices that are good for you
  • Exercise classes (led by CareFIT certified instructors)
  • Yoga
  • Music classes

Participants are offered refreshments such as snacks, tea, and coffee and the Khalsa Diwan Society serves lunch.

If needed, the nurse can assess care needs and help with medicines. The nurse shares any changes to care needs with the client’s Home Health Professional, if one is involved. We might also connect with you with resources in the community.

The number of days you attend depends on your situation.

Fraser Health covers most of the costs of this program and the rest is covered through a small fee.
