Acclaim Health – $2,000 (Seed Grant)
Burlington Day Program Expansion
The Burlington Adult Day Program expansion will take the program from 12 clients/day to 25 clients/day, add Saturday care (currently no weekend care in Burlington), and increase hours. Acclaim Health’s day program offers clients with dementia activities that focus social interaction, cognition skills, physical activity and creative expression. The Burlington Adult Day Program is the only dementia-specific day program in Burlington, and has a current capacity of only 12 people per day. The waiting list is now so long, only those in crisis are being accepted and people are waiting almost a year before they can access the program.
