Villa Cathay Care for Seniors Month 2023
October 1 –November 20, 2023
For seniors with complex health conditions, a long-term care home becomes the only viable option for survival after all other alternatives have been exhausted. Villa Cathay Care Home is one of the largest long-term care facilities in the Lower Mainland, serving 173 residents, and specializes in providing culturally focused long-term care for vulnerable older adults in our community.
Government funding is limited and primarily supports the basic care needs of long-term care residents. To provide the best possible services and go beyond the basics to meet our residents’ diverse needs, we depend on philanthropic and community support.
Villa Cathay is launching Villa Cathay Care for Seniors Month 2023, with the goal of raising $300,000, to enhance our programs and services for our residents. Event proceeds will support residents’ programs, including art therapy, music therapy, expanded rehabilitation, occupational and recreational therapy, as well as on-site wellness programs like acupuncture and massage services. Increased access to these life enrichment and enhancement programs will significantly improve seniors’ health outcomes and enhance their quality of life by nurturing their mental and physical vitality.
We hope you can join us in creating a reimagined home for seniors in our community. You can support Villa Cathay Care for Seniors Month 2023 via any of the following ways:
