COVID-19 has been difficult for many residents in long-term care homes. Victoria Hospital Foundation saw an opportunity to support residents’ well-being and secured numerous devices, iPads and Android Tablets, as well as $600 in phone cards for the residents at the Herb Basset Home and Pineview Terrace in Prince Albert.
The devices, provided by the Foundation, have been put to great use with the residents, allowing them to connect with family near and far. Staying connected is so important, for families just as much as for residents. Video calls let them spend time visiting with loved ones virtually, making it feel more personal for everyone.
The foundation also knew entertainment was important to residents and purchased three smart televisions for the homes for easy connectivity to streaming services. Who doesn’t want to watch re-runs of the Golden Girls at the press of a button?
The Victoria Hospital Foundation has made it their mission to ensure that we get through this pandemic together, by staying connected and staying safe.
Thank you to the Victoria Hospital Foundation for supporting our residents and their families through a very difficult time.
