Delta – The North Delta Lions Club has generously donated $3,000 in support of Delta Hospital to go towards priority equipment needs for Mountain View Manor, Delta Hospital’s Residential Care facility.

 

Opened in 1977, Mountain View Manor provides a home for 92 residents who require complex care and can no longer live safely or independently at home. This considerate donation will go towards the purchase of much needed Roho mattresses. These specialized mattresses are vital in providing pressure management for those who are lying or resting for longer periods of time and who are at high risk for tissue breakdown.  “All thanks to this donation we are able to ensure our residents are comfortable while also being able to minimize the risks associated with pressure wounds,” says Louise Setchell, Manager of Mountain View Manor, as well as Delta Hospital’s Diabetes Clinic and Specialized Seniors Clinic.

 

“Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation is fortunate to have the support of service clubs like the North Delta Lions, says Angela Turner, Major Giving Manager DHCHF. “We are extremely grateful for their ongoing commitment to healthcare in Delta, and for all that they do in our community.”

 

The North Delta Lions Club was founded in 1967 and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable causes as well as participating in many community projects.
