Bathing - A Natural Way to Enhance Well-Being

The Veterans Unit at your Yarmouth Regional Hospital has an interesting and important piece of medical equipment that needs replacing, and once again, we'll need your help to make this happen!

Not only is weekly bathing an enjoyable and much anticipated ritual for residents of the Veterans Unit, it is also a way to manage pain, enhance mobility and reduce symptoms of skin disease.

This crucial step in their care regimen may soon be in jeopardy at your local Veterans Unit. The hydro tub currently being used is very near the end of its life. The tub was purchased 23 years ago in 1994 and repairs and replacements are becoming very challenging.

The cost of a new whirlpool tub with a compatible transfer chair is approximately $30,000. This is where you and our Foundation step in!

The Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is committed to ensure our Veterans, who have sacrificed so much for us, will have a new hydrotherapy bathtub shortly. With your help we can make it happen!

Can you please give as generously as possible to help ensure our Veterans continue to benefit from the positive physical and mental effects of hydrotherapy.

You can make your donation now by using the secure "Donate Now" link above, or by calling the Foundation at 902-749-1669 or by mailing your cheque today to the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation, PO Box 7, Yarmouth NS B5A 4B1.

Please join me in making a donation towards the purchase of this vital piece of equipment for the Veterans Unit. Every dollar donated counts!

Sincerely,

Greg Barro, Chair
Yarmouth Hospital Foundation

PS   Your gift is a wonderful way to say 'thank you' to our cherished Veterans!
