On November 15, 2022, Hospice Dufferin and Alzheimer Society of Dufferin County will be hosting a joint fundraiser called "A Night in Paris." It is unique to have two charities join together for a fundraiser, however, it's the right fit as both of these charities have similar synergies which, make this a perfect fundraiser to support. Money raised from this event will be split equally between the two organizations to support clients in Dufferin County, who are experiencing Dementia, Alzheimer's, a life-limiting illness like Cancer, grief, or are caregivers.
A Night in Paris fundraiser is a magical evening at Hockley Valley Resort, where guests have the opportunity to sample the most delicious desserts from local restaurants the County of Dufferin has to offer. This fundraiser will be decorated beautifully using the theme of Paris and the premise that there is "joy" in eating your desserts as your main meal. There will be music, a silent and live auction, and other fun events during the evening.
The creation of this event provides an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate the upcoming holiday season as well as, create an event where businesses, friends, spouses, etc can attend without having to organize their own staff holiday parties.
Since, 1988, Hospice Dufferin has been providing compassion, care, and support to those in our community who are experiencing the challenges of a life-limiting illness, who are bereaved, or who are caregivers to those they love. Our vision is to provide peace, comfort, and dignity for all people in our community. Here is a snapshot of our impact on the community. In 2021, we supported 55% of our clients dying at home as per their wishes, an increase from 38% dying at home in 2020. In 2021, we served 297 clients and completed 3976 sessions of service. In addition, we were able to provide caregivers with 50 caregiver support bags.
The Alzheimer Society of Dufferin County was established in 1999 to provide information and supports to residents of the community. There were over 100 new referrals that came in and the team provided over 5165 units of service in 2021-2022. Over the year 2021-2022, there were over 35 personalized Montessori kits put together and hand-delivered to clients. We exist to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's Disease and other dementia and to promote research.
Your support of a silent auction or live auction donation to this event will help Hospice Dufferin and the Alzheimer Society of Dufferin County "FUND A NEED"
Hospice Dufferin will be using the funds generated to fund our Wellness Programs for Hospice clients which are essential to encourage positivity these include: music therapy sessions, exercise for caregivers, journaling, and meditation.
The Alzheimer Society of Dufferin County will be using the funds generated to ensure that our Music Therapy Program continues to grow, reach additional clients, and reconnect people with the soundtrack of their lives.
We would do this by offering in-person and virtual events as well as providing personalized MPS players to our clients.
Please join us! With your donation, we're one step closer to our "FUND A NEED" goals.
Government funding only provides enough funding to support 122 people.
However, in 2021 Hospice Dufferin supported 219 people.
Your support so far this year has allowed us to support 10 additional people.
But, we still need to raise additional funds to support 87+ more people in our community this year.
