Thank you to the Victoria Foundation

 

We are grateful to the Victoria Foundation who generously gave Mount St. Mary Hospital a grant of $18,000 towards the purchase of ceiling lift motors. Ceiling lifts allow residents to be safely transferred and also keep our staff safe during a transfer.

This gift was possible because of the kindness of Debbie Luo, Laurence & Hazel Burt Memorial Fund, Ernest & Hazel Kay Fund for Seniors, and the Vital Victoria Fund.

As you can see, these donors are championing excellent health care for seniors and those with disabilities. The impact on the lives of families in Victoria is incredible.

Imagine how many ups and downs our residents and their families must face. Aging, frailty, cognitive decline, medical conditions and diseases all take their toll and bring unexpected challenges. But there are lights of hope amongst everything they face and our donors are one of those bright lights.

I wish everyone could meet our resident Dave and his wife Rose. Their joy and gratitude for everything is evident. They know that thanks to the compassion of our donors, like the Victoria Foundation, Dave has the supports he needs to ensure his independence, guarantee his dignity, and enhance his quality of life.

Thank you to the Victoria Foundation for purchasing ceiling lifts for our residents and all of our incredible donors.
