New Dementia Care Centre – Building Better Days
Rotary is pleased to be working with Acclaim Health to support the new Dementia Care Centre.  The new, state-of-the-art building will be a centre of excellence for dementia care in the province and is expected to open in 2021.  It will feature:
  • Eight short stay overnight respite beds (the only ones in Halton)
  • An expanded Adult Day Program for people with dementia (more clients each day, longer hours each day, adding Sunday care)
  • An Adult Day Program for frail older adults (one of the S.E.N.A.C.A. Oakville locations)
  • Caregiver support for families
  • Best practices in dementia friendly design
Rotary is pleased to provide funds to the Angel Project which was founded in 2008 by Lisette Kingo after a visit to the Complex Care unit at Parkwood Hospital.   Many patients spend decades in Complex Care units in hospitals and will never go home again; accident victims, MS, ALS patients and others who have been left without tools and the finances to fend for themselves and have been abandoned by their families and society. Hospital foundations are wonderful however they have such a large need to fill that the social agenda and Complex Care units are often left to the last.
