Providing outstanding, compassionate dementia care can be expensive. Glacier View Lodge needs your help to enhance the quality of care provided to our residents and program clients.

Legacy of Light
Each year, as we light up the lights at Christmas, we begin a new Legacy of Light (formerly Book of Lights) campaign to raise funds for the coming year’s special project.
Past funds raised through this annual campaign have been directed to a variety of programs. In 2022 we were able to purchase a new bus with a wheelchair ramp. In 2020 and 2021 we raised funds to update furnishings in the main unit living room. In 2019 we added needed equipment to our Restorative Care Program. In 2018 donations allowed the Lodge to replace some 36 year old shade awnings. Other projects have included replacing a specialty bathing tub and furniture in our special care unit.
Over the next year, 2023-2024, our goal is to raise funds for resident quality of life projects. This includes activity supplies, gardening items, live entertainment, community outings, recreation technology... things that all of our residents can look forward to and enjoy.
To donate, open and print the form below and return it to Glacier View Lodge - Main Reception office or by mail to:

Sponsor a Pet
We all know the joy and comfort that pets bring into our own lives. This is even more important for our seniors. Your gift of $5 a month will help us to fund the food, equipment and veterinarian care that our pets require to stay happy and healthy.
Support a Program
Did you know that not all of the programs at Glacier View Lodge are funded by our health authority? Many of our vital programs which enhance quality of life depend upon grants and donations.
The “Support a Program" fund will help us support quality enrichment programs such as gardening, music therapy and other special activities.
“Music has the power to touch us all, at any stage of life. Music moves past the effects of disease and resounds in the heart. Music allows us to feel and move, and if the right song is chosen, to be able to recall and express past memories.” Liz Friis
Please call the Lodge directly if you would like to discuss how your gift is directed.
Thank you for your support!
