Our Commitment

Our core objective at Pender Adult Services is to insure that our community's mature adults are able to live a life that is not just longer, but also one that remains rich in satisfaction, stimulation and socialization.

Pender Adult Services is an agency designed to provide specific solutions for each special client. We make available not only basic life support services, but also services that increase life's pleasure and sense of well-being.
