The Group Services day program is located in the heart of Hamilton. Our team of Recreation Therapists, staff, clients and families develop daily programs that focus on assisting clients to achieve their goals, improve quality of life and enhance people’s overall well-being. The activities cover the domains of socialization, skill development, education, physical activation, volunteering and managing behaviours, while keeping a focus on person-centered care. The large, accessible space encourages clients to engage in social and recreational activities in a safe and supportive environment.
