2023 Winter Appeal- Memory Care Courtyard Garden Project

We thank our community for supporting Niagara Hospice for the last 35 years. For this year’s Winter Appeal, we have a goal to enhance and enrich quality of life for patients by creating The Memory Care Courtyard Garden at Niagara Hospice House. This courtyard would be a safe, secure and stimulating outdoor space tailored to this population, but also beneficial to all patients and families receiving care at Niagara Hospice House. Startup funds for this project have been secured through the fundraising efforts of the Jack Beatty Memorial Hospice Cruise and Clambake, and we are asking for your help to make the comprehensive project a reality.

“Patients with Alzheimer’s and related dementias can thrive in environments that decrease isolation, increase opportunities for independence and promote sensory engagementThe Memory Care Courtyard Garden would be comprised of various sensory features which are stress-relieving and promote physical and mental well-being for patients, while also providing a unique gathering and activity space for patients and their families.”  -Dr. Richard Castaldo, Niagara Hospice Medical Director

Our goal is $75,000. This special garden will add significant value to our patients’ lives, and be a welcome complement to the specialized 24/7 expert care provided at Niagara Hospice House. Please consider giving to this important initiative which directly moves forward our mission of providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Thank you.
