Renovated Day Program Reopens In Langenburg

Released on October 11, 2018

Today, Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding, on behalf of Social Services Minister Paul Merriman, joined community members, dignitaries and day program attendees in Langenburg to celebrate the grand reopening of a renovated day program building.

Langenburg and District Activity Centre (LDAC) currently supports 12 people with intellectual disabilities through their residential and day programs in Langenburg and Esterhazy.  The Ministry of Social Services provided $220,000 to renovate the day program building.  The washrooms were made fully accessible, the kitchen and program areas were upgraded and expanded, and landscaping improvements were made to help with water and drainage issues.


“The renovations done to this building will ensure day program participants are supported in a safe and comfortable environment,” Kaeding said.  “Our government appreciates the work LDAC does, providing purpose and community for people with intellectual disabilities.”

LDAC has been supporting people with intellectual disabilities since 1980.  They operate three group homes, two day programs, a supported living program and a SARCAN depot in both Langenburg and Esterhazy.

“The renovations not only ensure we are able to provide safe and wheelchair-accessible services, but has allowed us to create a warm and inviting environment where our participants can explore new and exciting opportunities to increase their overall quality of life,” LDAC Executive Director Kaylee Miller said.  “We could not be more excited to have a better place to call home!”

Saskatchewan residents and communities that have done work that aligns with the Disability Strategy are encouraged to share their accomplishments using the hashtag #SKDisability.
