The new Dementia Care Centre is named Patty’s Place in honour of local physician, Dr. Patty Plaxton!
Patty is living with early onset dementia – a diagnosis that she refuses to let define her. Inspired by her resilience, her friends and family started a grassroots campaign to name the centre after Patty to celebrate her commitment to caring for this community. They raised $1.5M, which helped fund the construction of the new centre.
Dr. Patty Plaxton had a family medical office in Oakville for over 20 years. Outside of work, she has been committed to caring for the community, supporting multiple charity events and foundations. Naming the dementia care centre Patty’s Place solidifies her connection to the wellness of our community – which is in keeping with what she’s been doing her whole life.
