Spring, a rekindling of hope!

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The Spring rains will come again.

— Sarah Ban Breathnach

 Lovely to wake up to the beautiful smell of Spring!

The newest Spring arrivals at Ron Smith Care Centre.

The Occupational Therapy Department is getting a new look!

We are expanding the OT Department here at Ron Smith Care Centre (RSCC). Building work started on the 21st of October 2013 and is scheduled to be finished in about six weeks' time.


We are establishing a Day Care Facility that will be accommodated in the new and much larger OT Department.


Our vision is for the Day Care to provide a much-needed chance for respite to someone who cares for a person living with dementia.


Our storeroom will be transformed into a lounge.

 All that is left of our OT Department.

Our temporary home in the  dining room while the renovation is under way.
