Finley Regional Care received a very generous donation of $40,000 from the Berriquin Nursing Home and Ulupna Lodge Hostel last week.
The funds will be used to help purchase furniture for the Dementia Wing of the Regional Care nursing home.
The funds have been raised by the auxiliary over the last several years through annual garden trips, Christmas stocking competitions and street stall fundraising activities.
Finley Regional Care CEO Shane Jenkins said the donation was ‘‘greatly welcomed’’.
‘‘On behalf of the Finley Regional Care family, I would like to thank the auxiliary for its kind donation and for the fantastic work the auxiliary does in promoting Finley Regional Care through their activities.’’
Mr Jenkins said the Dementia Wing is in its final stages of renovation and the furniture and furnishing are on order and should be received early to mid April.
The renovations include the addition of four resident rooms, an additional living area, extension of the dining room, reconfiguration of living areas, new carpet, furniture, furnishings and access to dementia friendly outdoor living areas.
It is estimated that the cost of renovations will be approximately $500,000. Funds for the project have been drawn from Finley Regional Care reserves.
