Ontario Making Investments in Care for People with Disabilities.

Construction of a new facility will assist March of Dimes Canada with treatment and care.

Today, Sudbury MPP Glenn Thibeault visited Wade Hampton House in Sudbury to announce an investment of 2 million dollars for the creation of a new building that will house six-one bedroom apartments and six-single occupancy bedrooms with fully shared living areas.  To be built on the same property of the current March of Dimes' facility, this building will welcome 12 new consumers while employing up to 30 more staff.

The investment will mean expanded care for patients living with complex Acquired Brain Injury.  As well:

  • provide our community with a new option when it comes to Long-Term Care Supportive Housing

  • transition patients who need long-term care out of the hospital system and into a facility that best suits their needs.  

  • allows our hospitals to focus on the patients that they are best suited to help

This investment in complex acquired brain injury patient care is part of the government's plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
