More about the services

Although Jewish programming is central at L'Chaim, we work with clients of all faiths. We celebrate all the Jewish holidays including a weekly Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday afternoons. L'Chaim participants pay a nominal amount for their food and supplies each day. Since L'Chaim provides an intense level of service, we cannot accommodate drop-ins.

Learn details about the services offered at L'Chaim Adult Day Centre on the L'Chaim website.
