Baycrest Foundation

You can help us raise $25,000 for life-saving equipment this #GivingTuesdayCA!

This Giving Tuesday, the Baycrest Foundation will be raising funds to support the purchase of Portable Emergency Aspirators in our long term care home. On November 28, 2017 you can help us ensure quality of life for our patients and residents!

Portable Emergency Aspirators enable our patients and residents with increased risk of choking the freedom to enjoy all the services Baycrest offers. Whether it’s attending our concerts, participating in our creative arts studio, or eating with their family in our dining rooms, Portable Emergency Aspirators ensure our clients always have emergency equipment on hand. These units are specifically designed for the well-being of older adults and residents with dementia and other impairments that affect their ability to swallow food or who require assistance in the event of choking.

The new aspirators will help refresh our current equipment and allow families and residents at Baycrest’s Apotex Centre, Jewish Home for the Aged greater mobility to move about our campus and be comforted in the knowledge that these critical medical devices are at-hand, should the need arise. The Baycrest Foundation encourages staff, donors and social followers to participate and help us fundraise this Giving Tuesday.
