Seniors Day Program
In 2017, JCAN in partnership with TAIBU Community Health Centre received funding to provide a Seniors Day Program for members of the community with dementia. The program will offer a customized range of cognitive, recreational and social activities that fosters independence, mental acuity, physical/manual dexterity and meets the psychosocial needs of clients while striving to maintain dignity and respect in a manner that recognizes their uniqueness and individuality.
JCAN was once again successful in obtaining funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program. With this funding, the organization will be hiring two students for the summer of 2019 to bolster JCAN’s sponsorship program. JCAN’s summer student program not only provides employment for the summer but will also provide mentoring and valuable work experience.
