Because You CARE Campaign

Caring for a spouse, parent or friend with complex health issues is more than a full-time job. Without adequate support, it’s an exhausting responsibility that can and often does lead to increased stress, sleeplessness, social isolation, and anxiety. Feelings of guilt and depression add to an already overwhelming situation, exacerbating the caregiver’s own health issues.

We know that caregivers wish for their loved ones to stay at home with them for as long as possible but many are at a crisis point. Respite such as services we will provide at the North Shore Family Respite Centre, will allow families to live in their homes, together longer while they plan for the future.

We’ll be there for the ones who need Care BC

Our Because You CARE Campaign will ensure that a new, purpose built, Family Respite Centre becomes a reality and makes a significant and lasting difference for North Shore seniors, their caregivers and families who may be struggling, and the community at large.

The capital budget for the new North Shore Family Respite Centre is estimated to be $12,000,000. To date, 70% of the needed funding has been secured.

Because you care, you too can be a part of the Campaign

There are many ways you can support this essential project and service. You can make a one-time or monthly donation, donate in honour or memory of a loved one, donate gifts of securities or leave a bequest in your will. No gift is to big or small!

And there are opportunities for gifts of $5,000 or more to fund equipment, furniture, a guestroom or any other need area within the Centre (Commemorative Naming opportunities start from $20,000 to $1,000,000 or more).
