“You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give.” ~ Anonymous
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.
Our current funding priorities include:
Each year, as we light up the lights at Christmas, we begin a new Book of Lights campaign to raise funds for the coming year’s special project.
Past funds raised through the Book of Lights have been directed to a variety of programs. 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.
In 2020 our goal is to raise funds to update furnishings in the main unit living room. The furniture has been very well loved over the past twenty years. It is time for new seating and to update our look, to crease a more comfortable and welcoming space for our residents, clients, families and other guests. Please help us create a more comfortable social space!

Other Opportunities to support us….
We are huge fans of Dr. William Thomas, founder of the Eden Alternative Project, who has inspired us to become an even more vibrant community.
Glacier View Lodge is committed to creating a vibrant community that allows close connections with people of all ages, access to nature and animals, and provides opportunities for meaningful activities. Knowing that loneliness, helplessness and boredom account for the bulk of suffering among our elders, we have been working to create a more stimulating environment that allows for spontaneous interactions.
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.
You can “Support a Program” with a donation of $10 or more each month.
Did you know that not all of the programs at Glacier View Lodge are funded by our health authority? Many of our vital programs such as Music Therapist and Restorative Care, that enhance quality of life, depend upon grants and donations.
The “Support a Program Fund” will help us support quality enrichment programs such as gardening, restorative care and Music Therapy.
“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
