VON-Junior League Overnight Respite Centre

The Plan: The Junior League Overnight Respite Centre
VON Hamilton and the League committed to working together to offer more options for help to family caregivers. An initiative to renovate and expand VON's Adult Day Centre to develop the VON-Junior League Respite Centre has now been completed. The goal was to offer weekend overnight respite care for individuals enrolled in the adult day program. Families are able to take a break for one or two days, both day and night, while their family member is safe, comfortable and cared for by staff of the Adult Day Centre.

JLHB Past President, Marion Goard, presents a $100,000 cheque to VON Foundation Board Chair, Kate Bursey at the grand opeing event.

It was a proud day for the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington Inc. when we shared in the Grand Opening of the VON-Junior League Overnight Respite Centre.  The Centre furthered the vision of "Respite care when you need it" for those who personally take care of loved ones with cognitive disorders, such as Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.  With four attractive bedrooms, the Overnight Centre provides safe, overnight accommodations in a warm and caring environment.

The partnership with the VON Hamilton provided JLHB members with many volunteer opportunities, from sitting on the VON Steering Committee and contributing to the planning and development of the project to rolling up their sleeves and participating in various "Done in a Day" projects - beautifying the grounds, serving clients and their families various special occasion dinners and preparing Memory Books that enable clients to remember special moments that provide them with solace and comfort.  It was a truly rewarding experience, one that our League is thankful and proud to have been a part of.
