Welcome to JIM’s Suites!
When you book an all-inclusive stay at JIM’s Suites, your family member living with dementia gets warm, friendly around the clock care while you get a break from caregiving.
JIM’s Suites features eight private bedrooms, along with lovely living and dining spaces for our guests. JIM’s Suites are located in a separate, secure section of Patty’s Place, our newly built dementia care centre in Oakville. This allows your family member to enjoy a wide range of activities during the day in The Soper Club (our dementia-specific adult day program), and then retire to JIM’s Suites to relax in the evening.
JIM’s Suites are available for stays of up to two weeks for people living with dementia. Our incredible team of specially trained staff are continuously available to take care of all your family members’ needs during their stay. This includes washroom assistance, help with dressing and showering, and help at meal times – and of course, having fun! All meals and snacks are provided (the cookies, in particular, are amazing).
Online reservations will open in late September for stays beginning November 2021. Please note that for the first few months we will only be open Monday to Thursday nights.
