Programs Offered at Lumsden and District Heritage Home

Adult Day Support Program (ADSP)

ADSP programs are designed as day support to enhance quality of life for clients who are living in the community. They promote physical, social, mental, and emotional health through structured and therapeutic programming and provide respite to family caregivers. There is a daily fee of $5.25 charged to the client (an amount set by Saskatchewan Health).

The Adult Day Support Team provides the client with:

  • a care conference which is held annually;
  • ongoing interdisciplinary assessment and care planning;
  • meaningful therapeutic activity and sensory stimulation
    compatible with the participant’s level of ability;
  • opportunities for recreation and socialization;
  • spiritual care if desired by client/supporter;
  • support services, e.g. dietary, including special diets at
    mealtime;
  • supervision/assistance with activities of daily living,
    including procedures such as colostomy care (using supplies
    provided by client);
  • weekly baths that can be provided on a limited basis if
    identified as a required service by the SWADD Co-ordinator
    in consultation with the ADSP Co-ordinator;
  • some nursing care, e.g. minor dressing changes, BP monitoring,
    reminders/assistance to take medications;
  • consultation with medical services is available at some Adult
    Day Support Program sites, e.g. confirmation of orders, if needed, for medications;
  • diagnostic tests (blood work) in specific circumstances.
  • family and caregiver education and support case management.
    through team conferencing.
  • linkages to the community.

SWADD co-ordinates the service package that is supporting the client in the community.
