So I've been getting a lot of email requests and Faeebook messages of people asking for my address to send a Christmas card to and as much as I appreciate the thought I was thinking about our veterans who are in Sunnybrook Hospital in Ontario who would probably appreciate getting a card for Christmas a lot more than I would so I contacted them and got the ok to give out an address to do so.
When you are filling out your list of Christmas cards this week please address one to the following address :
Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
c/o Nancy Bowers-Ivanski (Thankasoldier)
2075 Bayview Avenue
Toronto, On M4N 3M5
Think of how much it will mean to a Veteran of this amazing country of ours to open a Christmas card from someone they don't even know simply saying "Merry Christmas & Thank You" I would say thats $0.59 for the price of ONE stamp put to pretty good use this season.
The program provides cognitive support, physical support, mental health support and stroke care to Canada's war Veterans. We also provide palliative care for Veterans and the community at large. The palliative care unit (K1E), offers twenty-four beds and is located on the first floor of Kilgour wing. The professionals and volunteers on the palliative team are compassionate and committed to providing the highest quality end-of-life care. We also provide leading-edge, innovative dementia care for Veterans with challenging behaviours due to Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias in the Dorothy Macham Home. This residential-style home with ten beds, offers a unique specially designed therapeutic environment. It is the first facility of its kind in Canada.
Sunnybrook has a distinguished history of excellence in the care of the elderly. In 1948, Sunnybrook officially opened as a war Veteran's hospital, providing care to Canada's soldiers, sailors and airmen returning home from the Second World War. We are proud and consider it an honour to care for Canada's Veterans, the courageous men and women who served our country in the name of peace and freedom.
