Day Programs Help Caregivers

Caring for someone with dementia at home can be overwhelming. Our day programs can ease the transition into care and provide respite for loving caregivers.

Eden Gardens manages three adult day programs that run Monday to Friday: Daybreak, Stepping Stones and Community Bathing. These programs serve approximately 160 people with dementia who are living at home, on a monthly basis.

Case Managers recommend and refer clients to day programs based on client/caregiver need and availability of space within the program.

If you are interested in having a loved one come to live at Eden Gardens, your starting point is contacting Home and Community Care at the Island Health Authority at 250-755-6229. Their Long-Term Care Case Manager will conduct a long-term care assessment and, if appropriate, a referral to the residential care waitlist will be made.

Intended for those who are finding independent living increasingly difficult due to Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Daybreak provides a comfortable transition and ease of integration into a care home environment. Interaction with peers in a safe and friendly environment can be life changing for those with dementia who are living in isolation.
Stepping Stones
Designed for those who have limited social contacts and are prone to isolation due to dementia. Stepping Stones provides a comfortable and friendly place for life-enhancing social interactions.
Community Bathing
Provides hygiene services to people in the community who are unable to bathe or have great difficulty bathing at home.
