Love Gives Capital Campaign

Canada’s population is aging and the trend is rapidly increasing. We have more than 6 million seniors over the age of 65 now and the wait time for a Yee Hong long-term care bed can be as long as 10 years, compared to the provincial average of 152 days!

To tackle this urgent problem, Yee Hong is planning to build 3 new centres in Scarborough, Markham and Mississauga, doubling its current capacity of 805 long-term care beds to 1,605 beds. Total construction costs are estimated to be $300 million.

We need your support! The first step is to raise $80 million to get the construction of the new buildings started. Remember… Love Gives!

Third-Party/Community Events and Campaigns

Silver Ball

Parkinson’s disease is one of the most baffling and complex of all neurological disorders. The cause is unknown and there is no cure.

In 2017, Yee Hong Centre partnered with Dance DNA to develop the “I Can Dance” fitness program for individuals with Parkinson’s disease or other Parkinson-like illness, so that they can experience the joy and benefits of dancing.

This pilot project demonstrated encouraging results, showing a positive impact on improving patients’ motor movements and balance. It also provided a social support network, helping to reduce depression and build self-esteem.

This successful dance project has become an ongoing program since 2017. Silver Ball has been an annual fundraiser to showcase the “I Can Dance” program. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to hold the gala this year. But we have to continue providing support for those in need in the community.
