Did you know that when you choose to donate to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation you are supporting meaningful programs at long-term care homes in the Comox Valley such as music therapy at Cumberland Lodge?
Cumberland Lodge currently offers music therapy to approximately 20 residents. “Your visits are the highlight of my week!”… “Oh, I love this! I wish you could come every day!’… These are just a few words from the residents when speaking about the program. Increased funding will ensure the continuation of this important program. Music therapy has demonstrated many positive outcomes such as reduced agitation and irritability for residents with moderate to advanced Alzheimer disease, and has enhanced resident’s verbal expression. This program also eases anxious behaviours through creating a relaxing, fun atmosphere.
We are currently raising funds to support this important music therapy program at Cumberland Lodge. Your donation can help ensure the continuation of this meaningful initiative.
