Thank you for the Donation

Mrs. Dora Diamond was a resident of the Simkin Centre. When she passed away she bequeathed the sum of $12,000 to The Centre to support the work we do on behalf of our residents. This was truly a gift both from Dora and her husband Albert.  With the guidance of their children, Bonnie Antel and Robert Diamond, The Centre was able to use this gift to purchase three Digital Dual Ram Wheelchair Scales. One is seen in the accompanying photograph. The weighing of residents on a regular basis is an important component of our care. The results of the weighing are used to assess the well being of each resident with abnormal weight loss and are used as guide for modifications to diet and/or the ordering of diagnostic tests (in some cases) to evaluate if there is an underlying medical issue that may result in treatment. The three new scales enable us to have one on each of the Centre’s five units.

We are most grateful for the generosity of the Diamond family.
