GIVE A HELPING HAND TO A SENIOR IN NEED
For 40 years, Barbara worked as a nurse caring for others. But after she retired, dementia robbed her of her ability to care for herself. Now in long-term care, she struggles to communicate her needs to those around her, which leads to feelings of anxiety, frustration, and depression.
Your donation can change her life.
Each month, more 1,500 local seniors turn to Eldercare for help in the form of special equipment, exercise and therapy support, or needed items like clothes, hearing aid batteries and more. All they want is to maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life.
Your gift – no matter how big or small – can help make this possible. Please give today.
If you believe that seniors deserve to….
…your monthly gift can
Buy adaptive clothing for a low-income senior who literally has nothing to wear, as painful contractures, frailty, or amputation prevent them from being able to put on ‘standard’ clothes
Provide exercise therapy, and specially-designed equipment for a senior living with chronic illness, to help them maintain their strength and independence for as long as possible
Fund Adult Day Programs for seniors living at home to provide them with socialization, activities and outings while their family caregiver (often a senior themselves) receives a much-needed break.
Support music and art therapy for a senior who is living with dementia, and desperately wants to maintain the ability to express themselves and communicate meaningfully
with their friends and family
Keep a senior living with a high risk of falls – one of the biggest risks to elderly Canadians for major injuries, hospitalizations, and death – safe with a home medical alarm, or with a bed alarm once they move into care
Your gift of $10, $20, or $30 each month will help more than 700 seniors in care, and 879 seniors living at home on southern Vancouver Island every single day. Please join with us today and consider making a monthly donation.
