Thank you to all our valuable Women Friends of Baycrest supporters. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Baycrest is taking extraordinary steps to protect the well-being of our most valuable population, and WE NEED YOUR HELP. Safeguarding our Seniors (SOS) is our vital job at Baycrest as we face this unprecedented reality.

Baycrest needs your support. Your gift will be matched by members of the Baycrest Foundation and Centre Boards.

  • Our SOS campaign will fund:
    Critical protective measures and medical equipment to safeguard everyone - patients, residents, and the frontline workers who deliver care;
  • Equipment for clinicians to treat patients via telemedicine, and for patients and residents to connect with families while isolated;
  • Incremental staff to deliver needed care.

We need to raise $5 million urgently.

Together, we will pull out all the stops to safeguard the 1,100 seniors on our Baycrest campus and help many more in the community with outreach programs and virtual care technologies.
