We are thrilled to announce a generous $2,000 donation from the Realtors at Ocean Pacific Realty, matched by Broker/Owner Dave Procter for a total of $4,000 to support a True Door Project for residents at Cumberland Lodge.
Cumberland Lodge provides a home for 66 seniors from the Comox Valley. This funding will purchase door covers that mimic a real house door for residents in the Special Care Unit. The door cover might trigger fond memories of the home they grew up in, or a door similar to the home in which they raised their family, or even a favourite place they stayed on holiday. For patients with dementia, these unique door stickers will create more independence in helping them more easily identify which room is theirs, increased privacy with a reduction of fellow residents mistakenly entering incorrect rooms, while also contributing to a neighbourhood feeling at the Lodge in support of the exceptional care provided by staff.
