Your loved one’s independence is important to all of us. Broadmead Care is delighted to offer a wide range of Adult Day Programs that give access for seniors living in their own homes to health, social, respite, and recreational services. For our WWII and post-war veterans, the Veteran’s Health Centre provides a wide range of services to promote health and independence in a warm, social atmosphere.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of current Provincial Health Orders and guidelines relating to COVID-19, our Adult Day Programs at Beckley Farm Lodge and Rest Haven Lodge are open at reduced capacity.

Why Adult Day Programs?
We have seen firsthand the difference adult day programs make in the lives of seniors who live in their own homes. Adult day programs can help combat isolation and loneliness that people sometimes face by providing a social network, and access to information and education sessions, nutrition and foot care, discussion groups, and games or activities designed to engage both body and mind. We create an environment in which all can experience the joy of living, with wellbeing and happiness.
How Adult Day Programs Help You
Adult Day Programs promote health and independence for your loved one, offering a welcoming, social atmosphere. The benefits are two-fold. They offer an opportunity for the elderly living in the community, who are no longer able to attend formalized recreation or social programs, to attend a program that provides them with a safe and inclusive environment, creating an opportunity for clients to engage with others. And they provide much-needed support and respite for those who are caring for loved ones at home. This allows our clients to live at home as long as possible.
What Folks are Saying

On behalf of my father, I want to extend my heart-felt thanks to each and every one of you for your kindness, caring and professionalism over the course of my father’s move into [Beckley Farm Lodge]. From the very first day, my mother and I were so touched at the genuine compassion you all showed and impressed with your competence. We were so worried about this transition, and thanks in large part to each of you it went better than I could have possibly hoped.
