March 8, 2019 – Acclaim Health is now the proud owner of 2250 Speers Road in Oakville, the site of our new Dementia Care Centre.

At the moment it’s a warehouse that needs some love, but over the next year we’re going to completely transform it – inside and out.  We’ll be adding glass, windows, lots of natural light, gardens, patios, and the best in dementia design.  You can help us make the dream a reality by donating today!

The Need

Demand for dementia care has reached crisis levels.

  • Our Adult Day Program waiting list is now almost 100 people long, and it’s taking almost a year for people to get the help they need.
  • No short stay overnight respite options exist for people with dementia in Halton.
  • The need for family support has increased by over 30% in two years.

We hear daily from families who are stretched to the breaking point.  Real, transformational change needs to happen now.
