Help Perley Health meet its most urgent needs for 2023


My passion for caring for seniors started at a young age.

Working at Perley Health goes beyond pursuing my passion; it is an honour and privilege. After nearly thirty years as a nurse, this is my best job ever.

Today, I am privileged to write and thank you for your consistent support of exceptional care at Perley Health. I see your impact on our staff and residents daily, and I hope you continue to inspire people with your generosity in 2023.

While studying to be a nurse, I would visit my father at his job at a long-term care home. He was the maintenance supervisor but went beyond his job description to help seniors. Seeing him do a little thing, like fixing a resident’s watch, made a big impression on me.

Each day I see the staff at Perley Health go above and beyond to provide exceptional care. We all share the commitment to doing what’s right for residents, and it makes an enormous difference in seniors’ care.

As one of Perley Health’s most loyal donors, you are also doing the right thing. Your gifts enable Seniors and Veterans to live life to the fullest. Will you continue your support of exceptional care by donating to Perley Health today?

When you donate, you will be helping Perley Health meet its most urgent needs for 2023. These are the needs identified by frontline staff as critical to delivering exceptional care.

Looking at the Resident Priority Needs list for this year, I know the difference your donation will make. For instance, your gift can provide a good night’s sleep and a better start to the day for a senior by helping us acquire new specialized mattresses.

Donate Now

Your donation today will purchase tablets for Personal Support Workers, allowing them to update charts on the fly while spending more time with residents. Even a few extra minutes of personal attention makes a big difference in a senior’s day.

Your gift will help Perley Health to expand services and enhance the quality of life for residents by launching a new on-site foot care program this year.

At the end of life for a resident, families face emotional and physical difficulties. Your donation will help acquire Sleeper Chairs that allow loved ones to stay close and in greater comfort.

As I look ahead to the rest of 2023, I know we face many challenges. Can you help us help us overcome some of the most pressing challenges? Will you help Seniors and Veterans at Perley Health live their best lives?

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and request for support. I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and spirits.

Yours truly,

Rachel de Kemp, RN, BScN, MHA
