Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults

I was graced with a preview of the Perth Enrichment Program (PEP)! It's a beautiful, new building
ED Paula Whaley fervently making phone calls!
 and they are making great progress. Beautiful, bright rooms, with an exterior that fits right into this Heritage Community.

PEP is a community-based, day-long social and recreational program provided in a safe, secure group setting. Participants typically exhibit cognitive, social, and/or functional limitations, and therefore require the supervision and structure that Adult Day Programs provide.

Paula was giving a tour to guests.
"Many of the staff you met today were, in fact, staff from Dr. Bob VanNoppen's new clinic.  We are in the process of hiring however!! "
  • Erin, Nurse Practitioner,
  • Sara, support staff, 
  • Trish, co-ordinating the progress
    Paula shows me the kitchen,
    with great glee!
  • Sandy, support staff, rostering patients
  • Suzanne Rentil, Director Perth Enrichment 
  • Babs, one of the new doctors in the clinic.

I enjoy watching a new build!

This will be the nurse's office.
Note the beautiful light
from windows above!

Perth (est. 1816), is a dear town, with trees!
