Patient Care Grants
The families of children with disabilities often face extremely high costs, not covered by other medical plans. Patient Care Grants cover some of the costs for therapeutic equipment and prosthetics as well as transportation and accommodation to Easter Seals House.
Each year, the Patient Care Grants Program provides financial assistance to many families of children with special needs in BC, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories.
- Special Equipment: wheelchairs, splints, braces, van hoists, and ramps
- Prosthesis: artificial limbs and orthotic devices, prosthetics
- Accommodations: for the child and an accompanying family member to stay during medical or rehabilitative treatments
Each year the Society funds grants to families directly from revenues received exclusively through donations and fundraising. The society receives no government assistance in support of the Patient Care Program.
Wherever possible the assistance is provided discreetly so that families can focus on their most important task ... caring for the children.
