New Dementia Care Centre – Building Better Days

The Campaign

You can help us make the new centre a reality.  Donate today to help build and furnish this state-of-the-art facility.

The total project cost for the new dementia care centre is just over $10M. Thanks to the incredible generosity of many donors, we have raised over $6M. Acclaim Health has also contributed nearly $1M from reserves to the project. To reduce as much debt as possible, we are raising funds for the remaining $3M of outstanding project costs.

Want more information on how to contribute?  Contact Melissa Cameron at 905-827-8800 x2040 or Laura Pizzacalla at x2043.

Ongoing Operating Costs

Once built, approximately 85% of the operating expenses will come from government sources and United Way funding. The remaining operating expenses will be covered through Acclaim Health’s annual fundraising efforts.

The Need

Photo of 2250 Speers Road in OakvilleDemand 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.

At the moment 2250 Speers Road (at left) is a warehouse that needs some love.  Help us completely transform it – inside and out!


New Dementia Care Centre

Our 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
