Giving to Silver Chain
Giving To Silver Chain
Silver Chain is people caring for people. This is what we have done for more than 100 years and this is what, with your help, we will continue to do in the future.
While Silver Chain receives funding from the Commonwealth and State Government allowing us to provide our services within the Western Australian community, donations and bequests help us to provide additional services, higher levels of care and the appropriate infrastructure to support our services.
Private and corporate donations and bequests enable us to improve our services and to lead the way in the delivery of care in our community.
The Impact of Your Gift
Bequests and donations are used to ensure we provide the best possible service to our clients. We use such gifts to enhance our services and facilities in the following ways:
• Our Home Independence Program now recognised as an international model of care for over 65s, was almost entirely funded by gifts.
• Purchasing medical equipment such as electric beds and pain pumps used when caring for our clients
• Rebuilding, renovating and maintaining Silver Chain's metropolitan and country services centres, remote area health centres to provide comfortable environments for clients and employees.
• Providing training programs for clinical and home support staff to improve client care.
• Offering additional services to the community when no other sources of funding are available.
• Funding our research unit to develop better services and more effective service delivery such as our pressure ulcer risk assessment, evaluating methods of wound care and pilot studies resulting in programs to improve independence including our Home Independence Program and Social Rehabilitation Trial.
The work we do cannot be done alone. With your support and that of the community, we are able to continue the high standard of care that has become synonymous with Silver Chain.
