Carmela

Adult Day program

“Paradise.” That's how Carmela and her daughter describe Malton Village’s Adult Day Services program. We first met Carmela in 2015 when her husband Tony began attending. Carmela expressed how happy she was knowing her husband was in such good hands, seeing that he was much happier and talkative while attending.

Here's Carmela's story

Shortly after her husband began, Carmela decided to join as well, and has since been an energetic participant for several years. Carmela brings positive energy and enthusiasm to activities like Italian social, knitting, rosary, church services and meal makers. She has even begun leading some activities, helping others along the way. She makes everyone feel welcome, often crocheting slippers for new staff, students and clients to welcome them to the program.

Carmela's daughter, recognizing that Carmela can no longer stay home by herself due to health concerns, says she doesn’t know what she would do without the Adult Day program.
