Day Program for Older Adults

DPOA (Adult Day Program) provides a day out for older adults living at home who require support to participate in recreational, physical, and social activities. DPOA provides a hot meal, refreshments, medication assistance, exercise, and assistance with personal care.  The emphasis is on person-centered care, where the safety and well-being of clients is the primary focus.

In addition to providing the client with a great day, caregivers benefit from supportive education opportunities and time away for caregiving responsibilities, giving time to relax and reduce stress. This helps caregivers to enjoy better life balance.

DPOA is located at MSA Manor and is from Monday to Friday from 9:30AM – 3:00PM. There are 17 spaces funded by Fraser Health. The program is open to people living in Abbotsford and surrounding communities at a nominal cost.
