PUSLINCH – Morriston Park Nursing Home has put out a call for donations for staff and residents.

“We are a small underfunded long term care home who is struggling to obtain critical items such as personal protection equipment,” said Kim Bolger, office manager, in a letter. 

According to Morriston Park’s website, the long term care facility offers 28 beds in a rural setting. Located in Puslinch, the care home sits on 25-acres that features rolling meadows, mature trees and a large waterfowl pond. 

The letter by Bolger asks people to consider donating gloves, masks, face shields, disinfecting wipes, meals for staff and residents, and even lodging for staff if required during an outbreak. It goes on to say that a generous donation could help them save lives.

“We hope that we can count on your support to help us in fulfilling Morriston Park’s highest priority,” the letter by Bolger says. “To achieve excellence in resident’s services by providing personalized care in a safe environment which enables residents to enjoy each of their lives to the fullest. Not to be robbed of their last days by this dreadful disease.”

The letter said the home aspires to continue providing exceptional care and provide a safe environment for their staff. 

“Morriston Park strives for excellence as we have continuously advocated on behalf of those entrusted to our care,” Bolger said. “We need to save lives and we’re asking for anybody’s help to do so. It is our duty.”

To make a donation, contact Kim Bolger at (519)-822-9179 ext. 221.
