Helping to make the difference.
Pine Grove Foundation Inc. is a registered charity whose mission is to provide financial resources required to enhance the quality of life of residents of the Pine Grove Nursing Home.
Founded in 1984 by a group of community leaders determined to ensure a high standard of care at the then new facility, the Foundation’s volunteer board of directors works to supplement limited government funding with donations received through Campaigns, Events, Memorials, Special Bequests and Planned Giving.
Over the years, the Foundation has supported numerous programs and improvements to enable residents to live their final years in the utmost comfort.
Projects in recent years include the Ray Dickinson Tranquility Garden, funding ceiling lifts for residential rooms, creating a palliative care room, refurbishing the residents’ kitchen and supplying specialized tables and chairs for the dining rooms.
The Activity department can also rely on support from the Foundation to enhance its overall programming.
The Board of the Pine Grove Foundation works closely with the Board of the Nursing Home and the management to support their efforts to offer residents and their families the most comfortable and pleasant environment possible.
