Casey House provides compassionate, exemplary HIV/AIDS care in a variety of settings (i.e. inpatient, home and outreach clinics) in order to ensure our clients receive the best care in the best possible environment for their needs.
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care funds the majority of the operating costs of our inpatient program. Casey House is fortunate to have donor support to supplement care and services to patients admitted to this program.
Casey House Foundation raises funds to support vital care and services provided in this program which include:
- Community Nursing Program – donor funding enables our registered nurses, social workers and home care workers to assist clients in the comfort of their own homes, ensuring coordination of care with direct benefits for the health and well-being of our clients. (The Toronto Central CCAC funds a small portion of this program.)
- Complementary and Recreational Therapies – including massage therapy, physiotherapy, art and writing therapies, nutritional skills support and peer support.
- The Child Care Fund, supporting parents with HIV/AIDS in securing child care so that they may attend medical appointments and peer support activities.
- Care for the Caregiver Program
- Associate Physician
- Resident Care and Comfort Fund – recognizing that clients in crisis often arrive at our door with nothing, this fund allows Casey House to supply such essential comforts as a toothbrush, pajamas, liquid meal replacements, socks, or a phone call home to far-away family.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, as well as funds generated through special events including Art with Heart and Voices of Hope for World AIDS Day, each year the Foundation is able to grant approximately $1.0 million to support these vitally-needed ongoing community programs.
