Berwick Royal Oak – Christmas Baskets at the Silent Auction!

Berwick Royal Oak Managers and staff contributed gift baskets towards our Christmas Silent Auction which supports the Victoria Hospice Society.  This year with only 59 items we raised $2,333.  We also had one resident that sponsored $250 to purchase additional baskets to be included in the Auction.

Many thanks to our residents, family, friends and staff for bidding on all of these items.

Family Member

“Berwick is home for my mother. It’s everything that she could possibly want. It has everything she wants and stuff that she didn’t even know she wanted.”

Resident

“The big thing here is the staff. The waiters and waitresses – they are so good with elderly people. They are so patient. The staff are so marvelous. It’s not like you are institutional, they are so warm with you. You’re not a number sitting at a table at all. It’s just not like that here.”

Resident

“This staff here is just fabulous. Fabulous. If there is a heaven on the planet, then I’m sitting in it. I tell people that are visiting or touring here, ‘If you join us, you’ll never regret it.’”
