Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, renal patients now have access to new tuck-away belts that comfortably and safely house the patient’s catheter, keep it clean between uses, and hold it in the appropriate position on the abdomen. Over 100 belts have been purchased to provide to patients who can’t afford them. As well, aging hemodialysis machines are replaced annually through grants from the Health Sciences Foundation.
Volunteers will deliver the sealed email message within 24 hours of receiving it. Emails received on weekends and holidays will be delivered the next business day. Unfortunately, we cannot deliver email messages after a patient has been discharged from the Health Sciences Centre and gone home.
