The Life and Living Well program will assist you to organize and remain in control of your life. Through a series of sessions, in a social atmosphere, you will be guided by a professional to develop your own life long care plan that can be shared with your loved ones, friends, and your healthcare providers, if you so choose. You will also be encouraged as helping neighbours, to look out for one another, through our Neighbours Helping Neighbours program. Each session is 1.5 hours and will use different tools and resources to help you create your plan.
The Life and Living Well program consists of 4 sessions which include: happiness and living a good life, developing a circle of care, support along with recognizing one's own skills and talents in order to be able to reach out to those who are isolated and or need help, and being in charge of one's life and developing goals that are meaningful as well as understanding the Ontario law related to who makes decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
Through Give65 fundraising, our hope is to raise money to help run this program in areas that need it the most. This includes in seniors buildings, with seniors organizations, and in community centres like Kingsville Community Centre, where seniors frequent the most. Helping to improve quality of life for our most vulnerable is a goal that WECCC has been working on for just over 3 years. With your support we will continue to help others and provide people with the help they need and want. Thank you.
Belmont House prides itself in offering excellence in healthcare. But our tenants and residents often state their appreciation of our diverse programs and services, when explaining why they believe we are the "Seniors' Home of Choice".
Meaningful recreation and leisure programs are an integral component of the programs and services offered to the residents at Belmont House. Recreation activities are designed, developed and delivered to ensure that each tenant's and resident's quality of life, personal interests, abilities and well being are paramount. Art and music therapy, time in our beautiful gardens, sing-a-longs, discussion of current events, dances and themed dinners, are which encourage and promote interaction and a sense of community among tenants, residents, family and staff.
We are so thankful for the generosity of Belmont House Foundation donors, who make a rich array of programs that touch the minds and hearts of our tenants and residents possible!
Experts, caregivers and service providers from across our region have set out a vision for palliative care improvements, but there is a funding gap to making this vision a reality. This is where the OutCare Foundation can and does help. The Campaign for Comfort responds to the critical needs in our community by providing equipment funding that would otherwise not be available. Whether it's for new beds or ceiling-mounted lifts for patients, sleep chairs for family members, or wheelchairs and transfer benches for loan programs, donations to this campaign make a big difference and they are needed. Our community-based palliative care organizations are terribly underfunded. They raise funds just to be able to operate their programs, which makes it very challenging to replace or buy new equipment. This is why addressing this important gap is one of our priorities
With seniors making up the fastest growing age group in our society, the need for more palliative care is becoming urgent. If we are having difficulty keeping up with the current demand for palliative care now, which we are, imagine how much more challenging this will be as our population ages. The OutCare Foundation's Campaign for Comfort responds to these critical needs and will provide comfort and care to those approaching end-of-life.
