Rimbey Ladies Auxiliary are doing their part to ensure the patients at the longterm care unit receive the best possible care.

The auxiliary ladies donated close to $7,000 to Rimbey Hospital longterm care.

The funding will be used to purchase a double overhead lift for the longterm care unit.

Longterm care manager Sharla Hull said the financial donation is be a huge help.

“It’s amazing to get such a donation,” she said. “It will help make life so much better for the patients and it is safer for both staff and residents. It makes it less painful.”

Hull said there is some overhead lifts at longterm care now, but the goal is to have a lift for each room. A double overhead lift can be used in rooms with double occupancy.

There are 84 beds in longterm at the Rimbey Hospital.

A single lift costs about $5,000.
