ACE in the Hole! We’re More than Half-Way There!

At the October 26th, Laughter is the Best Medicine Gala Dinner, Capital Campaign Chair; David Schioler announced Riverview Health Centre’s new $7.6-million Alzheimer Centre of Excellence (ACE) Campaign.

There was a standing ovation as it was also announced that Paul Albrechtsen made a $4-million donation to kick off the campaign!

Ace in the hole

This addition to Riverview Health Centre will improve the lives of the 60 Alzheimer’s / Dementia  residents by reducing the number of individuals living within each grouping, allowing greater freedom both indoors and out within a safe perimeter, and offer more individual activities that are not group dependent. Both the new building and the renovated residents’ area will host technological advances to improve the quality of life which is a top priority for Riverview Health Centre.

Now the question remains:

  • Is the glass half full - we are already over half way to our goal!
  • Or is the glass half empty - we still need to raise another 3.6 million dollars to fully fund this project. Riverview Health Centre needs people like you to get involved to make this vision a reality!

If you are interested in getting involved with the campaign please contact the Executive Director, Sheldon Mindell at 204-478-6197 or by email at
