ODBF is proud to donate $5,000 in support of Carefor Health & Community Services. Carefor offers in-home care and community support services which include rehabilitation, nursing, palliative care, respite care, retirement care, physiotherapy, and many more essential services.
“Covid-19 has had a tremendous impact on the way many not-for-profit, charitable organizations do business and Carefor Health & Community Services is no exception,” said Trevor Eggleton Manager – Communications, Marketing & Fundraising – Carefor Health & Community Services “As an organization with deep roots in delivering home and community services for over a century in Eastern Ontario, we’ve had to rethink our current offerings to support our community’s most vulnerable people currently living in isolation at home. Our primary clientele are the frail elders in our community who either receive health care services in their homes, small residential facilities or in retirement facilities, as well as the thousands we serve with our much-needed community support services.”
These funds will help to support the development and implementation of the Virtual Carefor at Home program, an initiative that expands the tools, services and training offered by Carefor by making them available to residents virtually. Through this initiative, Carefor staff will be better able to meet the needs of vulnerable seniors from the safety of their homes.
