Many seniors have carefully planned for their future. However, the impact of low interest rates on investment income over a long period of time—and the cost of changing health needs, put many seniors close to the poverty line in Canada. In fact, over the last several years we have provided over $250,000 of annual assistance to residents, who otherwise could not have afforded to live at Davenhill. Why? Because someone needs to fill the gap—and the seniors of our community deserve to have the best lifestyle possible.
How Can You Help?
Seniors continue to be one of the highest at-risk demographics in our society. As many of us continue to work to survive and thrive in these complex and expensive times, many of our parents and loved ones have lost their capacity to do so. In addition, the savings that they have are not keeping up with the rising costs of health care in the midst of less government support.
Couple this with the fact that not all families have the resources to help their own parents in the way they would like to, and you have the reason for the Davenhill Assistance Fund. It exists to give caring, generous people the chance to partner with Davenhill to bring honour, dignity and love to the elderly in our community who need our help.
To gift a tax-receiptable donation to the Davenhill Assistance Fund, you may send a cheque payable to:
Yonge-Rosedale Charitable Foundation

Toronto ON M4W 3M2
Thank you in advance for your generous support. Because of you, more seniors can afford to receive the caring support of Davenhill Senior Living.
