Youville Residence is a complex care residence, with a specialized mental health unit for older adults.
Breathe Easy Campaign
Outdated respiratory equipment is being replaced through donations to the Breathe Easy Campaign. Nebulizers are needed to help keep residents airways clear. These devices turn liquid forms of medication into a fine mist that can be inhaled directly into the lungs. To learn more about other campaign needs, call Janice Waud Loper at 604.806.9351.
Safety and Comfort Campaign
Meeting safety and comfort needs is just one way that we care for seniors. You can help us support seniors’ diverse care needs through our Safety and Comfort Campaign. One of the current items needed through this campaign are weighted blankets, which calm residents and enable them to relax and sleep comfortably. To learn more about other campaign needs, call Janice Waud Loper at 604.806.9351.
A new Family Centre
Total Cost: $75,000
A new Family Centre is being planned at Youville Residence, with upgrades to the recreation and dining area benefitting residents, families and staff. A “high-street” atmosphere is planned and will include amenities such as a snack station, hair salon and a possible movie theatre space. Additional private areas are also being created for family meetings, celebrations or quiet family visits outside of the care setting. A top priority is establishing a comfortable place to accommodate family members who need to stay overnight with a loved one.
For more information on how you can support the new Family Centre, contact Ann Adams at 604.806.9481.
