GIVE A HELPING HAND TO A SENIOR IN NEED
The past 18 months have underscored just how vulnerable our elderly friends, parents, and neighbours are in the face of disruptions to health care, in-home services, and even weather. Please consider converting your regular support of Eldercare Foundation to a monthly gift, to help us respond more quickly when urgent care needs arise.
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
Fund the community bathing program for seniors who can no longer safely bathe themselves at home.
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
On a hot summer day, deliver an ice cream treat to a senior living in long-term care, or a present to an elderly care resident who celebrates Christmas but no longer has friends and family to share it with
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.
