MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR EVERYDAY
We have been privileged to have various individuals, institutions and organizations come to add joy to the lives of our residents as well as to create a better living environment for them.
In big and small ways, YOU can contribute too!
FAMILIES & FRIENDS
Providing care 24 hours a day for 7 days a week for 400 residents is no easy feat. The costs of running a nursing home remains high. On the average, we need about $100 per resident per day to operate the home on a daily basis.
Each love gift is significant to the resident’s well-being and every dollar counts to providing better quality of care for better quality of life in the home.

Many of our elderly residents in need come from low-income backgrounds that simply cannot afford the cost of round the clock medical care on top of medical treatment. Some no longer have any family to rely on for even basic necessities. Your donation can help them lead a quality life in their silver years.
Add extra quality years to their life by donating $10, $60, $120, or $220.
On top of your donation, Tote Board will also match the amount you donated to double your contribution.
Your donations will go towards:
- Residents’ daily necessities
- Residents’ food rations
- Residential services
- Round the clock nursing care
- Residents’ medical and dental treatment
- Medical supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Any other expenses
Your donation is also 250% tax-deductible.
The beneficiaries of your donation are elderly residents who are in need and require extensive medical care. They are mostly wheelchair or bed-bound, suffer from chronic illnesses, and need assistance in most of their daily living activities.
Support our silver elderly in need by donating any amount you can!
- $30 Can provide meals for 4 elderly a day
- $60 can provide milk feed for an elderly resident for a month
- $100 can cover the cost of staying at the Nursing Home for a day
- $500 Can provide 10 ambulance trips for residents’ recurring outpatient medical/dialysis treatment
