Announcements MaplesFS Clients Continue to Support The Pines with Generous Donation
16 Jul 2014
The MaplesFS Community Service Committee on behalf of MaplesFS clients recently donated more than US$450,000 to The Pines Retirement Home in aid of ongoing enhancements to the organisation's new residential facility, which officially opened in March this year. "MaplesFS and its clients' generous donation will enable us to purchase enhancements for our new facility, such as hoists for residents, pressure mattresses and pumps to make our residents more comfortable, as well as an up to date CCTV system to enhance safety and security and a whole host of maintenance and upgrade items that we could not otherwise afford and will help reduce our indebtedness," said Lynda Mitchell, manager of The Pines.
The Pines is a non-profit charitable organisation that provides full-time residential accommodation and nursing care to Cayman's senior citizens. After nine years of extensive renovations, the new facility is now home to 50 permanent residents, as well as numerous day care clients. Extensions to the original building, which was badly damaged during Hurricane Ivan, mean that there is now room to care for a greater number of elderly residents. Furthermore, upgrades to existing equipment, as well as the addition of new advanced equipment, will allow the home's dedicated staff and volunteers to continue to provide quality and loving care to its elderly residents. In addition to around-the-clock residential care, the much cherished, 31 year-old institution offers a number of other worthy programmes, including day care, respite care and assisted living support.
The funds mark MaplesFS' second substantial donation to the organisation over the past year. In November 2013, the retirement home received an early Christmas gift in the form of a US$190,323.53 donation from the financial services provider and its clients. MaplesFS CEO Scott Somerville said, "The Maples group has been a long-time supporter of The Pines and we are pleased that many of our clients have chosen to also support the home, whose hard work and quality care play an essential role in our community."
