Seniors' care centre seeking 'angels' (St. Michael's Centre)
Burnaby’s St. Michael’s Centre needs some renovations to help brighten the living quarters for seniors and people in hospice care.
The Tapestry Foundation for Health Care is leading a campaign to raise $250,000 to cover the costs of renovations at the 128-bed 24-hour, complex care centre in Burnaby.
“I think it would have a very positive impact,” said Blake Armstrong, the operational site leader for St. Michael’s Centre. “I think it lifts people’s spirits. It makes people more positive. It’s a more enjoyable experience, just talking about the kitchen, it brings families together with their loved ones. It makes a huge difference for the residents and their families.”
