The Health Foundation received a $12-hundred donation from the Gateway Co-Op.
The organization says, in a news release, the donation will help with the purchase of two alternating pressure mattresses for the Canora Gateway Lodge.
The mattresses – commonly used with patients in palliative care – are important for a long-term care facility, as they prevent bed sores in residents that have difficulty moving.
Executive Director Ross Fisher said the healthcare system is under “a lot of pressure” and government money is going to fight COVID-19, so to maintain local services “we are all going to have to do our part to make sure that happens.”
“Gateway Co-op consistently supports our work to improve healthcare in east central Saskatchewan. We are grateful for their help and the work they do in the community,” Fisher added. “We could not undertake the larger initiatives we do without knowing businesses like Gateway Co-op will financially support our work.”
