The Grace Village Better Living Fund

The Grace Village Better Living Fund supports a broad range of project-oriented initiatives at Grace Village that enhance the quality of life and resources available for our seniors. The Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation's sole purpose has always been to support Grace Village (under the corporate name Massawippi Retirement Communities), and this has traditionally included sponsoring specific equipment or project needs. Learn more below about the different projects for which we are currently raising funds, and help us help the seniors in our community.

Memory Care Environment Project

Make a difference in the lives of seniors with dementia!

Grace Village is pleased to launch an initiative focusing on a dramatic enhancement to our Memory Care living environment. The goal is to provide a stimulating living space for our seniors with diverse cognitive needs.

Building on the foundation of a state-of-the-art facility and our dedicated highly skilled staff who ensure loving, compassionate care, we have the opportunity invest in our Memory Care services to tailor the environment to the unique needs of our residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Special Equipment

Current special equipment needs include:

Thanks to donors like you, over the years the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation has been able to provide Grace Village with certain special equipment, like infection control carts, hospital beds, and a bladder scanner. These needs change as technology improves and the needs of our residents evolve. 

Currently, we are fundraising for:

  • Library Furniture: Since moving in to the new Grace Village Care Pavilion, we have used various furniture in the Library that hasn't found a home anywhere else in the building. We currently need several comfortable armchairs and a smaller table for residents and visitors to be able to spend time in this intimate, quiet space.
