We have an undeveloped south facing courtyard which, with your help, can be transformed into a Healing Garden, that will be safe, secure, and nurturing and which will make a difference in the lives of those who have lost their sense of self and independence. With your help, the benefits of such a Garden will make a difference in the lives of those who have lost their sense of self and their independence.
Our current campaign is to build a Healing Garden at Providence Care Centre, specifically designed for those residents with dementia. Nature is known to be restorative, and access to a specially designed garden that appeals to all the five human senses is beneficial to the physical, social psychological, and spiritual health of those with dementia.
Father Lacombe Centre Dining Room Renovations
Father Lacombe Care Centre was opened in 1965. For over 52 years the building has been home to many residents in need. The main dining room is in need of a major overhaul and updating.
Mealtime is often the highlight of each day for residents of long term care facilities, meaning that both the meal itself and the dining experience can have a major impact on residents’ quality of life. Making mealtimes more enjoyable for residents is part of the shift toward “person-centered care”, which aims to make services more flexible and focus on the needs of the resident.
