More wel­come at Stanstead Day Cen­tre

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

The Stanstead CLSC’s Day Cen­tre has been op­er­at­ing for a year now and there is room for a few more par­tic­i­pants. Open ev­ery Thurs­day from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm, the Cen­tre has been of­fer­ing ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties by qual­i­fied per­son­nel for English and French se­niors liv­ing with a loss of au­ton­omy.

The ac­tiv­i­ties, quiz games, board games, mem­ory games, crafts and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity such as bowl­ing, darts and more, help those tak­ing part, peo­ple with cog­ni­tive or phys­i­cal hand­i­caps, to main­tain the abil­i­ties that they have. The work­shops are all bilin­gual and clients may eat din­ner, pro­vided by Meals on Wheels, on site. The Day Cen­tre also gives the care­givers of their clients a much-needed respite once a week.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in this pro­gram must first be eval­u­ated by a So­cial Worker. For more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter call toll-free at 1 800 268-2572 and ask for so­cial in­take ser­vices.
