Breathe Easy Campaign
Outdated respiratory equipment at the site is being replaced through the Breathe Easy Campaign. In the extended care unit, nebulizers and portable suction machines are needed to help keep residents airways clear. Nebulizers turn liquid forms of medication into a fine mist inhaled directly into the lungs. Portable suction machines, also known as aspirators, help clear accumulated mucus from the mouths of residents who experience difficulty swallowing.

Safety and Comfort Campaign
Meeting safety and comfort needs is one of the ways Tapestry Foundation cares for seniors. You can support their diverse care needs through our Safety and Comfort Campaign. A number of items are needed in the extended care and rehabilitation units including specialized mattresses, walkers, wheelchair cushions, treatment mats, and walk-in shower stalls.

Tools to Meet the Rehabilitation Challenge
Total Cost: Varies by piece of equipment
Holy Family Hospital is one of the largest referral centres for rehabilitation in BC. Older patients recovering from stroke, limb amputation and joint replacements depend on therapists and other experts to help them regain their mobility. Height adjustable therapy tables are needed to support both individual and group therapy sessions. Contact Janice Waud Loper at 604.806.9351 to learn more.
Specialized Wheelchairs for Extended Care Unit
Wheelchairs to enhance specialized needs are important for residents in the extended care unit. You can help update an older fleet of wheelchairs with the latest models constructed of lighter materials and fitted to individual needs. Newer wheelchair models are significantly lighter enabling residents to move around more easily and help them to maintain a sense of independence within the residence.
Extended Care Unit
The fundraising priorities for Holy Family Hospital's Extended Care Unit will be announced soon.
