“Thank you to all of the Day Program staff and volunteers. Since my husband started coming there, he has really come out of his shell and is much happier at home as well. He speaks so highly of you all, and is enjoying himself immensely. It also gives me some time to myself, and I always know he is in good hands!” – Caregiver
“Words can never express my gratitude to the staff and your program. Linda so enjoys going there each Tuesday and Thursday which it gives me a reprieve. I am so grateful for your kindness, your care of the adults and the obvious dedication to those that attend your program. I have and will continue to speak highly of your program. Thank you. – Caregiver
“I wanted to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to the Community Care Day Program team for hosting the virtual online activities for their members. This makes such a huge difference to them when they have to be at home for the entire day. It gives my mom something to do and she so enjoys it.” – Caregiver
