This amazing program has benefited me and my family in the most positive of ways. As the sole care giver, chauffeur, grocery shopper, financial manager, gardener, and worrier in chief I was amazed at the change in my mother over the years she participated in this program. It opened up a whole new world for her. She loved going there and being able to socialize with other people, have a good meal, and be entertained with a variety of fun things such as bingo, trivia pursuit, and other activities. She never missed the Christmas Party, the Spring Fling, Oktoberfest, or outings for ice cream. She was happy to have made new friends and frequently refereed to the adult day program has her "Club". She was thrilled at the personalized attention she received from the staff. It made a huge difference in her mental and physical well being in the later stages of her life. For me personally, it provided the respite I needed to calm myself and do the things I needed to do for myself and my wife. It was this program that provided me the relief from worry when she was in their care and regular health checks kept me aware of any issues that were found. I have seen the amazing things this program has done for many clients and their families. The current program is at full capacity running two programs daily Monday to Friday and normally has a lengthy wait list. Our demographics indicate that our senior population is growing and the need for this service has and will continue to grow. The society has purchased a lot in downtown Campbell River and has plans to build a stand alone adult day program centre to help fill the need in our community. Your donation, large or small, will help to buy the bricks, boards, nails, cement and other materials and labour that go into building a new centre.
