Arnprior Regional Health Foundation’s Campaign raises 80% of goal for new Grove and life-saving equipment

June 15, 2020 – The Come Home to Great Care Campaign has reached a new milestone today by hitting 80 per cent completion of its $5 million fundraising goal thanks to the generous support of the community.

The Campaign has successfully raised $4 million, to date and has been supported by volunteer Campaign Co-Chairs, Glenn Arthur and Ed Reid.

“Our community has continued to come together with incredible generosity to make important headway in attaining our Come Home to Great Care Campaign goal,” said Ben Gardiner, Executive Director, Arnprior Regional Health Foundation. “Our shared efforts will help make the new Grove possible – and provide more local seniors with a state-of-the-art home environment that will ensure their safety and enrich their day-to-day lives.”

The construction of the new Grove has continued safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The redevelopment project is nearing 20 per cent completion and is on target to open in summer 2021. The design is modern, people-first, departing from the institutional style of nursing homes. The new space will accommodate 60 per cent more residents and has been laid out into three distinct neighbourhoods – each includes a dedicated living room, dining room, activity room, bedrooms and access to a secure courtyard with walking paths, seating, and gardens.

The Come Home to Great Care Campaign will contribute $4 million for the new Grove and $1 million for leading-edge technology and equipment at Arnprior Regional Health to help ensure the community has access to the best care locally.
