As a registered charity, we use the funds from generous donors like you to support high priority needs and enhance the safety and comfort of our most vulnerable residents.
Where your donation goes
- The Lodge needs items such as new electric beds and therapeutic mattresses, communications systems that connect healthcare staff with residents, and other healthcare equipment and furnishings not covered by government funding.
- Our Palliative Care Program helps residents to achieve the best possible quality of life as they prepare for the inevitability of passing, while seeking to facilitate the comfort and support of family members and friends remaining at the bedside of their loved ones.
