Thanks to the incredible support of our community, a record-setting 6,000 gifts were delivered to older adults through the 11th annual Be A Santa To A Senior.
Patients who experience a stroke often require rehabilitation as part of their recovery. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have invested $4,000 in specialized stroke care tools and treatment activities designed specifically to promote their healing and help them return to their daily activities.
The holiday season is upon us once again, and with it comes the opportunity to reflect on the year that has gone by. I want to personally thank you for your ongoing generosity.
November is fall prevention month and there's a very good reason why an entire month is dedicated to raising awareness about the risk of falling. One in three older adults aged 65+ falls each year and it's the leading cause of injury hospitalization in Manitoba, accounting for $265 million in healthcare spending.
Once per week, Diane Silverthorne commutes 90 minutes to Winnipeg from her home at Hillside Beach to volunteer at Victoria Lifeline. Victoria Lifeline is Manitoba's number one medical alert service, providing thousands of clients with the security of innovative fall prevention technology.
