Meet Linda

This is Linda with her husband Paul. They have lived in Woodstock for 45 years. Linda’s hometown is Tillsonburg. She is a retired registered practical nurse and has been a volunteer greeter at Sakura since 2016. ⁠
“I recently became a monthly VON Sakura House donor as a way to support their daily needs, which allows their team to provide the incredible hospice care the facility is known for. After a brief visit with my Aunt in 2016, I became a volunteer because I was deeply moved by the support my family received. Because of my volunteer role at Sakura House, I understand the need for hospice care in our community, and the impact it makes for patients and families. The Sakura House team has a wonderful vision and I admire the integrity and support each family is shown, every minute of their stay. I am honoured to express my support with a monthly donation. Thank you to the entire Sakura House team for the strength, care, support and love you give.”⁠
We are so grateful Linda for your support.

Meet Hannah

Hannah is a Personal Support Worker at Sakura House, who wanted to share why she loves her job and why it is so important in our community.

Sakura House During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The past couple of years have been filled with uncertainty and change.

Even as fundraising revenues decreased, through community support Sakura House has endured and been able to enhance our staff resources and safety protocols.

Our patient and family care and their safety was and continues to be our top priority. This never changed. Your donations to the Sakura House House Recovery Fund have made a difference and we still need your help to ensure our services are available for those who need them.

You can help us provide these services at no cost to our patients and their families by joining our monthly donor family today!

A monthly gift of:

-$12 keeps patients connected to family and friends by covering the cable/internet/phone for a day

-$27 keeps the gardens beautiful and serene for patient and family walks for half a day

-$45 provides nutritious meals and snacks for a day.
