About Arirang Adult Day Program (ADP)

The Arirang ADP program provides Korean culture specific structured and supervised activities in a group setting for adults who need care or support. The ADP provides an opportunity for seniors to interact with their peers in planned recreational and physical activities, as well as Korean meals designed to improve their quality of life.

The Adult Day Program (ADP) ran since October 2016 to March 2020 wholly funded by donations we received from the community. However, in March 2021, our ADP partner, CHATS secured funding from the government for Wellness Program for the Korean community. Since then, we continue to partner with CHATS and Milal Church in the delivery of the ADP service under the name of Arirang Wellness Program at Milal Church with the government funding.

Features:

Our community-based culturally centred Adult Day Program meets the needs of frail, socially isolated, mild cognitive impairment (without responsive behaviours, exit seeking & wandering) or those seniors with age-related illnesses, and who could benefit from some personal support and supervision.

A hot lunch and snack are served with each visit. Personal Care is offered (1-person assistance) with washroom and other care needs provided.
