Featured Events and Campaigns
Scarborough Residential Hospice
In order to meet the increasing demand for palliative and end-of-life services in Scarborough and across the GTA, Yee Hong is embarking on a fundraising campaign to build a Residential Hospice at the Yee Hong Centre- Scarborough Finch – a home setting where families can spend meaningful time with their loved one while he or she is assisted by Yee Hong’s professional caregivers.
Unconditional Love Quilt Campaign
Inspired by a Chinese poem that describes a loving mother sewing an article of clothing for a son who would soon be travelling afar, Yee Hong has vowed unconditional love to its seniors through a hand-sewn multi-coloured quilt dedicated to the women of our community.

Third-Party/Community Events and Campaigns
Parkinson’s disease may be one of the most baffling and complex of all neurological disorders. The cause is unknown and there is no cure. In addition to requiring medical support, patients must eventually modify their lifestyle, including exercise, diet, recreational adaptation, etc.
Yee Hong’s Community Support Services, in collaboration with Dance DNA Studio, developed the “I Can Dance” fitness program for our Parkinson’s clients, with very positive results in the pilot program. To support the continuation of the program, the first-ever Silver Ball was held on September 15, 2018.
It was said to be one of the best events ever. Based on the overwhelming positive feedback, the Silver Ball will be held every year to support this important program. Not only did we raise much-needed funds, we helped raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease and the needed support of our patients and their families.
