Friends of Glenrose Association has been supporting and enhancing care and comfort of patients, their families and caregivers for more than 50 years. It is a registered not-for-profit society based in the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital which relies heavily on the active participation of its members to fulfill this long-standing mission.
The Friends help patients, families and staff with services such as the Corner Store, Hair Salon, vendor markets and library services. Members provide patients with amenities such as blankets donated on behalf of the Friends of Glenrose to brighten their stay. Other special items include vouchers to the Corner Store during Christmas, Easter, Father’s Day, and Mother’s Day. Children also receive a small gift at Christmas.
Since beginning in 1964 as the Women’s Auxiliary and now the Friends of Glenrose Association, the Friends and its dedicated members have donated more than $1.0 million to the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital and the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation.
