Our donors have been pivotal in Momiji Health Care Society becoming one of the best examples of elder care in the country. Donors have helped Momiji honour its philosophy to age with respect, dignity and independence through funding enhanced and culturally-specific programs and services. Momiji seniors participate in activities that promote physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being – adding life to their days and days to their lives.
Without donors ongoing support Momiji would be unable to sustain its innovative and compassionate care for its seniors. So please help make Momiji’s model of senior care the golden standard and not a rare exception by making your donation today. Ways to Give

“I used to have a naïve image of what caregiving for seniors was all about. I thought I would be able to completely understand and fully meet all my parents’ physical and emotional needs. Basically, I just wanted my mom and dad to be safe and happy. But I quickly learned the caregiving process is much more complicated – and that I needed help. This is why Momiji is so important to me. And why I am so grateful to have their expert help. Momiji has held my hand through the complexities of being a caregiver and lifted my spirits with their wise, reassuring advice. Because of Momiji’s leadership on my family’s caregiving team, my Mom and Dad are able to continue to have meaning in their life – in other words they are happy. And Momiji has helped me become a much better caregiver. I have been blessed to have learned how to help in ways that honour and respect my parents while providing them with secure and humanistic care in their remaining years. Another unforeseen benefit is that I am modeling the care I wish to receive from my children when my time comes.”

“Over the years I have volunteered at a number of senior centres in Toronto and at every place I saw a growing amount of unmet needs. Simply put – the demand was greater than the resources available; whether it was being short staffed, using antiquated equipment, or just not enough physical space to conduct programs. And I found Momiji was no different. However despite these limitations, Momiji maintains a high level of care because their staff is always willing to give 120%. But I do worry about the great pressure this puts on them, because even a diamond under enough pressure can be ground to dust.
Volunteering at Momiji has helped me realize that everyone will face aging — if not with their grandparents or parents, then certainly with themselves. This makes having one of the best models of senior care in Momiji something we all need to cherish and ensure its future existence.”

“I give to Momiji because for me, it’s personal. They take excellent care of my Mom and I think that my donation is the least I can do. It gives me peace of mind to know that my Mom is safe and well taken care of. They not only provide her with opportunities to stay active physically and mentally but they encourage her to join in the events. Momiji staff are so caring. My Mom is lucky to live there.”
