In 2002, a new long term care centre was opened up in Mill Woods with a unique design which now has 156 beds, 17 lodge suites, an Adult Day support Program, and a Child Development Centre.
In 2004 The new Continuing Care Centre located in Millwoods was named after the first Guild President, Bess Winspear.

the Gray House Guild is committed to ensure each resident has the opportunity to experience their best quality of life while at the AGCCC by maintaining a homelike, respectful, and supportive environment for residents and families.
One of the roles of The Guild is to raise funds for the provision of equipment and enhanced programs for the comfort of the residents. Members also advocate for improvements in long term care.
Guild members hold a casino every two years, biennial fairs with vendors, operate a Gift shop, support the Centre Art Gallery and Beth Aylen library and assist with other fund raising activities as needed. The Guild also accepts funds through donations.
Members have a chance to make a difference in the lives of our residents as well as build meaningful relationships. Members also serve on the AGCCC Board of Management along with community members who oversee the operations of the facility. Being a member of the GHG is a rewarding experience.
