What we do

Living More because of you.

Live More Awards

The Hedley G. Ivany Live More Awards take place every year to honour Nova Scotian leaders for their dedication, compassion, and devotion in making our communities better places to live.

We are honoured to announce that Lee Bragg and John Bragg will be our 2024 recipients of the Hedley G. Ivany Live More Award. They are proudly joining the growing list of 21 previous award recipients.

Dignity Month

The Dignified Living Program is a special fund created by the Northwood Foundation because we recognized that residents and clients were going without items and services necessary to maintaining their dignity and quality of life. The Dignified Living Program provides ongoing support to residents and clients who are struggling with medical needs like transportation to appointments, dental work, hearing aids, and other necessities that aren’t covered by the government, their insurance or their income.

How Your Donations Helps Our Community Live With Belonging, Dignity and Choice

The Northwood Foundation encourages people Residents and tenants at Northwood have access to a wide array of engaging activities. Whether it’s participating in gardening activities within our inclusive greenhouse, play pool and having a drink at our bar, or attending concerts and performances hosted throughout the year, the community can anticipate a variety of enjoyable and exciting events.

Residents also have access to the Northwood bus, providing them with transportation to medical appointments, outings, mall trips, and special holiday light shows around the city. We acknowledge the significance of ensuring our residents have accessible transportation that enables them to actively engage beyond Northwood locations and stay connected with what’s happening in their city.

But your donations aren’t just about trips. Your sponsorship means we can offer our residents the following activities:

  • Bingo
  • Music Events
  • Games
  • Day Trips
  • Holiday Lights Tour
  • Excursions
  • Dining Out

Your support matters!

We can’t do what we do without you. Every donation, big or small, helps us make everyone’s aging experience the best it can be.
