Ed’s House Gifted Substantial Donation from Royal Canadian Legion District F Hospital Trust

The Royal Canadian Legion District F Hospital Trust has made a significant donation to Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre. With their generous donation of $18,673, Ed’s House was able to purchase much needed critical equipment to enhance patient care at Ed’s House.

The ‘Miranti Lift Bath Trolley’ will help support residents at Ed’s House, as they often require bathing needs that were not available to them before they arrived. This important equipment takes into consideration patients individual needs, as the bath lift allows patients who may not be able to sit or stand to access bathing facilities and hygiene care.

Community Care Northumberland (CCN) and Ed’s House are grateful for the support of the Royal Canadian Legion District F Hospital Trust, who continue to support healthcare and medical initiatives throughout Northumberland County.

Through its local Branches and members, the Legion raises funds and supports essential services for those in need and responds to the unique needs of the community. Their work at the community level includes outreach and assistance programs for Veterans and their families, fundraising to support essential community services, offers supports for seniors and families in need, organizing commemorative ceremonies and promoting Remembrance, and more.  

Sherry Gibson, Director, Hospice Servicescomments, “This new piece of equipment gives our residents additional comfort and security while bathing, a luxury many of us take for granted. We are delighted to be able to provide our residents the option to use the newly purchased bath trolley, through the generosity of Royal Canadian Legion District F Hospital Trust, as bathing becomes more difficult as illness progresses.”
