Across the globe, the aging population is an undeniable phenomenon. As baby boomers live longer and medical care becomes increasingly sophisticated, the elderly population continues to grow by the day. In fact, the government predicts that one in four Canadians will be a senior by 2036. The demand for senior and health services is expected to rise immensely, and we need your support to continue making our senior services the best they can be.

At Mon Sheong, we not only understand the frustration of waiting for a long-term care bed, but we also recognize the strain on the seniors and their families. With no government plans to increase the number of care beds in the near future, we took the initiative to create a new solution, alleviating some of the pressure through our Private Care service.

Mon Sheong Private Care can also provide a comfortable place for your loved one to stay after being at the hospital. They will receive constant monitoring and assistance with their daily routines, all while being able to make use of the fully furnished private studios and emergency physician on call.

While Private Care can serve the community in so many ways, it does so without any government funding, and the monthly fees we receive are insufficient to cover the significant operating costs. Your generosity is needed to ensure the elderly can continue receiving the immediate care they deserve.

Nothing is more comforting than your own bed. Make a thoughtful donation and help one of our residents receive the respect and assurance they deserve.

Imagine yourself as a resident of a long-term care home. As you feel physically weak and are spending more time in bed than ever, what you would want is the ability to adjust your bed whenever you wanted—at just the touch of a button.

The new beds purchased through this campaign provide added safety and comfort to our residents. They can be easily lowered to promote access and independence for the seniors. It also has an auto contour feature that simultaneously raises both the head and knees, allowing our residents to stay comfortably in place while being better positioned for reading, watching TV, or talking to family members. This simultaneous movement also helps to prevent painful skin breakdown that might otherwise occur during repositioning.

At the moment, 100 beds at the Mon Sheong Home for the Aged are still waiting to be replaced. Act now and make a one-time or monthly donation to support the long-term care bed campaign. Rest your head on your pillow tonight knowing that you have made a big difference in someone’s life.

Help put a smile on the faces of our seniors. Please send us an email or call 1-866-708-0002 to discuss how you can make a difference in their lives.
