(Brampton) - Bright, spacious, and beautiful - these are the words that describe the newly renovated dining room at the Davis Centre, one of Region of Peel Long Term Care CentresThe opening of the dining room was the highlight of the annual festive celebrations at the Davis Centre on Dec. 5. This event, organized by volunteers, also marked the Davis Centre's 20th anniversary.

"Today, we have many reasons to celebrate. The new dining room is a wonderful addition to the Davis Centre and will make having meals here much more comfortable and enjoyable for the residents," said Mayor of Caledon Marolyn Morrison. "The Davis Centre is well known in our community for its high quality of care and services and for the compassion and dedication of staff and volunteers. I thank all staff and volunteers for their hard work and for helping the residents and Adult Day Program participants stay connected to our community through various activities."

The Centre's dining room was expanded to meet the growing needs of the residents. With more residents with wheelchairs and walkers, the space of the old dining room was limited and did not comply with current standards. The new dining room is more accessible, comfortable and allows for a more efficient service delivery.

The design of the dining room was developed with input from residents, staff, volunteers and family members. It includes a stone fireplace and a unique chalet-like ceiling, which provides an outdoor feeling all year long.

"I have a special connection with the Davis Centre. I've been a volunteer with the Meals on Wheels Program for some time and I always enjoy spending time in this centre," said Regional Councillor Annette Groves. "I want to thank all the volunteers for their work and commitment. Your contributions enhance the care and support for the Davis Centre residents and Adult Day Program clients, and we are very fortunate to have so many dedicated people helping us."

Since 1984, the Davis Centre has provided long-term care services for the older adults of the Caledon community. The Centre's dedicated staff and volunteers strive to help residents maintain a strong sense of dignity, independence and well-being. Residents enjoy a variety of stimulating programs and 24-hour health care. The Davis Centre is located in Bolton.

The Region of Peel has a tradition of caring for the older adults of our community for more than 100 years. We operate five long-term care centres - Davis Centre, Malton Village, Peel Manor, Sheridan Villa and Tall Pines. All of our centres operate in accordance and compliance with the relevant legislation of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the policies of the Region of Peel. Our long-term care centres are accredited by the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation.
