simple connections, big difference!
Misericordia Health Centre Foundation donors help make lives better in real ways. During the pandemic, their generosity to our COVID-19 Relief Fund gave residents in Misericordia’s Transitional Care Units (TCU) complimentary TV services.
“It has helped with residents being calmed, entertaining them, and when we were closed to visitation it was a source of information of what’s going on outside,” said Joy Arado-Alberto, TCU Resident Care Manager.
“I’m very grateful to the donors. It has helped tremendously during these times.”
Misericordia’s 111-bed TCU serves patients who require complex social and medical support for a limited period of time before transitioning home with community services or to a personal care home, supportive housing or elsewhere such as Hospice.
For TCU resident Monica, the TV has been a way to keep up with the news and help her feel less isolated.
“It’s a very nice service, and it helps get away from thinking about illness.”
Monica says donating to improve health-care services at Misericordia Health Centre can impact many people.
“It’s your neighbours, your family, it’s widespread…I think it’s very commendable. I thank the donors.”
