Care for Seniors Day 2021
June 21 @ 8:00 am - July 5 @ 5:00 pm
Villa Cathay Care Home Care for Seniors Day 2021 is an online and media campaign to raise funds to support Phase 2 of the Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project that is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2021.
The completed Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project will bring a new 224-bed long-term care facility to address the growing demand for culturally focused long-term care for vulnerable adults.
For seniors with complex health conditions, a long-term care home is the final option after all other options are exhausted. For seniors in long-term care homes, being able to address seniors’ cultural needs is vital for those seniors to continue to thrive. Imagine vulnerable Chinese seniors who suffered from chronic medical conditions but are only left with the option to live in a care facility where they cannot communicate and have daily meals that they are familiar with. When seniors are not placed in a care home that meets their cultural needs, their health outcomes will be greatly compromised.
The new Villa Cathay Care Home facility will also enable the delivery of enhanced wellness and therapeutic programs to promote the sense of well-being, self-efficacy, autonomy, and dignity.
Community support and sponsorship will be vital to raising the final balance needed to complete this much-needed project.
Care for Seniors Day 2021 will comprise of:
Online fundraising campaign including email and social media outreach
Mass Media Campaign including promotion in radios, TVs and newspapers
Charity Sales and Online Silent Auction from June 21 to July 5, 2021
Radiothon on the two local Chinese radio stations on June 26, 2021
Online program on July 3, 2021 featuring drama and performance
