Waypoint Volunteer Association invests in Bayview patients
Waypoint Volunteer Association invests in Bayview patients

Volunteer Association donation

As the hospital’s longest serving donor, the Waypoint Volunteer Association has funded exciting and noteworthy excursions along with much needed patient programming equipment for many years. 

More recently, efforts have been made to find innovative recreation and leisure opportunities for patients who are unable to participate in existing day trips, special events, recreation activities and rehabilitation services due to physical and/or psychological barriers.

On June 26, the Volunteer Association executive welcomed staff and patients from the Bayview Program to present a $25,000 cheque for a Snoezelen Room.

A Snoezelen Room is a multisensory, therapeutic resource for patients who require stimulation, leisure and recreation, but are unable to participate in traditional recreation and therapeutic programs. These patients are some of our most vulnerable, highest need patients and as a result finding meaningful, impactful and enjoyable therapeutic opportunities can be challenging.

The Snoezelen Room will fill this gap and transform their lives on a daily basis, providing consistent, ongoing recreation and therapeutic opportunities.

We are so grateful for this support from the Volunteer Association (as well as community sponsors and donors). With this and other investments, many doors have been opened for our patients, providing remarkable opportunities for personal growth, healing, skills development, and increased overall happiness.
