Each month, broken hearing aids, dead batteries, empty PolyGrip tubes, and lost glasses – seemingly simple issues for most of us – become major life events for some of Vancouver Island’s most vulnerable residents.  

Long-term care costs up to 80% of a senior’s after-tax income, but DOES NOT INCLUDE vital items like clothes, medications, dentures, hearing aids, glasses, outside health visits, personal care items (shampoo, deodorant, razors, etc.), wheelchairs, entertainment, and more.  For those seniors who have only their pension, Old Age Security, and Guaranteed Income Supplement payments for income, they often can’t afford the things they need.

Please give today to help long-term care residents most in need!
