Realtors support The Residence in Mission

FVREB makes $5,000 donation to Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation in Mission received a $5,000 boost from the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board this month.

The money will be used to help furnish The Residence with up-to-date health care equipment and other comforts for residents. The facility, which opened last year, is operated by Fraser Health and provides support to seniors with complex care needs and dementia, and patients suffering from brain injuries.

“The money comes from our board’s charitable donation fund,” said Michael Gleboff, communications coordinator for the FVREB. “Every year whenever possible, the board, on behalf of our members, strives to support important causes and organizations to better the quality of life in our communities.”

In Mission, it is projected that the demographic of residents aged 50 to 70 will see the greatest increase over the next decade, according to FVREB.

“As realtors, we understand the importance of home and having the amenities and means to meet the needs of those who live there,” said Ray Werger, FVREB president.

“This donation will go directly towards helping our clients and reaching our vision of innovative health care for seniors in the Fraser Valley,” said Elizabeth Findlay, director of residential care in Fraser Health.

The FVREB represents more than 2,700 realtors who live and work in the communities of Mission, Abbotsford, Langley, North Delta, Surrey, and White Rock.
