Current Campaign

In the short, 3 1/2 minute video, you’ll also hear from Jennifer Wear, RN, Saanich Peninsula Hospital Residential Care, who speaks about current programs that are in place and the importance of sensory programs to elders.

And you’ll meet Paul Hames, Board President of the Foundation, who reminds us “It is our hospital, but it is their home.”

The outdoors, art, music, literature, the things that make life rich remain the same, regardless of age. All are essential contributors to a person’s happiness and well-being. Engaging the people who call Saanich Peninsula Hospital home in these lifelong passions can make a profound difference in their quality of life, everyday.

Our goal for this year’s campaign is to raise $2 million for the Residential Care Unit. Your donation will help us to support new art, music and horticulture therapy programs, revitalize the Library and provide personalized equipment for each resident in our Care Unit to continue enjoying the passions they love.

Please donate and help us reach our goal.

This year, your gift will help our residents grow…

It’s no secret that gardening has a positive effect on a myriad of health conditions. But did you know that it can be used as a highly effective therapy for patients living in Residential Care? According to the Canadian Horticulture Therapy Association, this specialized form of therapy is “a formal practice that uses plants, horticultural activities, and the garden landscape to promote well-being for its participants. Horticulture Therapy is goal oriented with defined outcomes and assessment procedures. Sessions are administered by professionally trained Horticultural Therapists, and research indicates that Horticulture Therapy is proven to be beneficial in a wide variety of healthcare, residential, school, and rehabilitative settings.”

While gardening at SPH is not new for our residents, the benefits of gardening and immersion in nature are growing increasingly lauded by healthcare professionals. In addition to improving flexibility and mobility by strengthening and stretching muscles, the interaction between people and the natural world is shown to improve cognitive, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

With the expansion of our current gardens, as well as the introduction of curated sensory gardens and Therapeutic Horticulture Programs, our residents living in Residential Care will be able to reap all the benefits you sow.

Your donation will help our residents in care by funding the programs they love and the equipment they need.

Please give us a call, come to one of our two offices, or make a donation to help today.
