Adult Day Programs at Bendale Acres, Cummer Lodge and Kipling Acres have resumed service with modified hours and limited capacity for returning (no new) clients. Proof of vaccination is required. Masks must be worn at all times and physical distancing among program participants will be maintained.

Adult Day Programs provide a wonderful opportunity for seniors living in the community to have “a day out”, participate in social programming and connect with peers. They are offered in three City of Toronto operated long-term care homes:

Bendale Acres(Scarborough)
Telephone: 416-397-7020
Cummer Lodge (North York)
Telephone: 416-392-9502
Kipling Acres (Etobicoke)
Telephone: 416-392-2299


The programs offer a variety of quality activities and services, in a safe and supportive environment, to individuals living in the community who are physically frail, have a cognitive impairment or are socially isolated.

Each day, participants have the opportunity to take part in a variety of social, recreational and physical activities, including special events and wellness education. Participants receive nutritious meals and snacks and assistance with activities of daily living.

Service provision is respectful of culture, ethnicity, family traditions, community, language, sexual orientation and spiritual beliefs of the members.
