PEP – Seniors Therapeutic Centre formerly known as Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults and fondly referred to as PEP was established in 2014 by a local physician and his office nurse. PEP was developed in response to both the growing needs in the Perth-Smiths Falls communities, and the mandates of the Seniors Strategy of Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care.
PEP is a program of care, direction and therapy which focuses on helping older adults to stay healthy and in their own home as long as possible. Our community based, adult day program is designed to put a” little pep” in the lives of seniors, provide support and enrich the functionality of older adults. It is a structured comprehensive, therapeutic program located in a safe setting. While our clients attend the day program their caregivers receive much needed and well deserved respite.
