Community Support Services
Adult Day Program (ADP)
The Adult Day Program provides supervised individual programming in a group setting for older adults, who may be physically frail, cognitively impaired and/or socially isolated. Our program is designed to assist participants in achieving and maintaining their maximum level of functioning, to prevent premature and inappropriate institutionalization and to provide respite and information for caregivers. Program elements include planned social, recreational and physical activities, snacks and lunch. Transportation is available upon request.
Please note that potential attendees must have a referral from Home and Community Care Support Services Champlain. A ROSSS staff member will conduct an interview to determine eligibility.
We offer regular, professionally staffed, and convenient foot care clinics to take care of your foot aches, problems and overall maintenance. Booking in advance is required.
ROSSS volunteers conduct regular visits with homebound clients in our community with the aim to reduce isolation and loneliness through friendship and support.
ROSSS volunteers regularly contact clients by telephone to ensure and verify the well-being and security of vulnerable members of our community.
ROSSS volunteers are ready and available to assist you in preparing your income tax and benefit return papers.
