Burlington Adult Day Program Expansion
BURLINGTON’S ONLY DAY PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA IS DOUBLING IN SIZE
We are excited to announce that our Burlington Adult Day Program will be expanding! The expansion will more than double the capacity to care for people living with dementia from 12 per day to 25, as well as adding Saturday care.
Acclaim Health, along with many of our Burlington caregiver families have been advocating for more dementia care in Burlington for several years, and are excited to be able to support more community members in need of assistance.
“Every single day we are grateful for this program,” says Laurie Martin, whose mom, Liz attends the program. “I know from personal experience that this wonderful news will make the lives of people living with dementia and their families so much better.”
The expansion has been made possible due to new operational funding from the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network (HNHB LHIN). “We’re so fortunate to have partners like the HNHB LHIN who are as committed as we are to providing extraordinary dementia care in Burlington,” says Michael Marco, Acclaim Health’s Board Chair.
Acclaim Health is fundraising to help cover the capital costs of the renovations, equipment, and furniture required to accommodate the increase in clients. If you’d like to help, please contact Laura Pizzacalla at 905-827-8800 x2043.
