Dementia Care Home gets another cash injection

Nearly $93,000 added to fund

The Kitimat Dementia Care Home construction fund bank account jumped by nearly $93,000 recently following the transfer of funds by the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation.

The $92,475 was raised through the hosting of the annual Hospital Gala in the spring and the Christmas Coffee House in December last year, and through various generous contributions from community organizations, individuals and businesses.

Members of the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation and the Kitimat Valley Housing Society (KVHS) met on January 22 to transfer the balance of funds collected in 2019 by the Hospital Foundation on behalf of the construction fund.

The Dementia Care Home is a $5 million project managed by the Kitimat Valley Housing Society, and the Hospital Foundation committed that all funds raised in 2019 would be put towards the construction of the home.

“Thanks to the generosity of the community we’re another step closer to having a state-of-the-art Dementia Care Home in Kitimat,” said recently appointed Hospital Foundation office co-ordinator Cynthia Medeiros.
