New Adult Day Program spaces in Richmond
Vancouver Coastal Health and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. jointly announced on March 24, 2017, a project that will add 25 new Adult Day Program spaces in Richmond.
The 25 new spaces are expected to deliver 37,650 new service hours annually, serving an additional 125 new clients per year, which will help meet the growing demand for this type of service in Richmond. VCH is contributing $520,000 annually in operational funding for the program.
Space for the Adult Day Program is currently being renovated and will be available to accept clients in mid-June, 2017. The new program will be co-located in S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s assisted living facility, Austin Harris Residence, on Moncton Road in Steveston.
About adult day programs

Clients attend adult day programs for caregiver and family respite, health status and medication support and monitoring, targeted therapeutic activities, and access to health education.
