Calgary Community Day Services is dedicated to providing a unique day service to seniors and mature adults with developmental disabilities who, by chronological age or by handicapping condition (i.e. dementia) would benefit from such a service. The emphasis is on community presence while caring for the unique needs of seniors. Services are flexible and provide a wide range of choices to the individual. The focus of the service is recreation and leisure with the objective being to enhance the quality of life of the individuals served.
