Featured Events and Campaigns
PK Kwok Hospice Campaign
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 the PK Kwok 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.
Yee Hong 9-Hour Online Singing Marathon
The pandemic may have disrupted our lives, but it has not impacted our love for our seniors. In support of our frontline workers who care for our seniors, keeping them safe and healthy, and to fundraise for our expansion plan to build three new long-term care centres in the near future, we are hosting the Yee Hong 9-hour Online Singing Marathon on October 25, 2020.
National Seniors Day Dinner
Celebrate National Seniors Day with Yee Hong, and help us honour our seniors for their lifelong contributions to our community!
“Caring Heroes” Online Show
Long-term care residents are some of the most vulnerable during this pandemic and our frontline workers are doing everything they can to keep them safe and healthy. Join the “Caring Heroes” Online Show to honour the frontline staff of the Yee Hong team.
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.
