Davis Centre Breaks New Ground

(Brampton) - Caledon Mayor Carol Seglins, local Councillors, The Davis Centre residents, and staff gathered in The Davis Centre's courtyard to break ground for the dining room renovations on Sept. 12. Other guests included Adult Day Program participants, The Davis Centre volunteers, and Meals on Wheels representatives.

Groundbreaking CeremonyThe facility, which is one of three long-term care facilities in the Region, is set to begin renovations in order to better accommodate the needs of its residents. Due to the rising number of residents in wheelchairs, space has become limited in the dining room and can no longer comfortably accommodate all residents.

"Resident care needs have changed a lot in the 19 years since The Davis Centre was first built," says Josée Belke, Administrator at the Davis Centre. "Our dining room needs to be expanded to meet these changing needs and incorporate the culture of our growing community."

The design, which incorporates suggestions from residents, staff and community members, includes a unique chalet-like ceiling which will provide an outdoor feel all year long for the residents. Construction will begin in the coming weeks and complete renovations are anticipated by May, 2004.

Groundbreaking Ceremony"The Region of Peel recognizes the important role of seniors in our community and is committed to providing quality living for all residents in the Region's long-term care facilities," says Regional Chair Emil Kolb.

Since 1984, The Davis Centre has helped seniors with limited physical and emotional abilities develop a strong sense of dignity, independence and well being. Dedicated and compassionate, professional staff provide high quality care and a choice of stimulating and interactive activities designed to meet a wide range of the residents' interests and abilities.
