Health auxiliary equips health site

The century old Ashcroft & District Health Care Auxiliary shows some of the equipment it has purchased over the past year.

Several members of the Ashcroft and District Health Care Auxiliary were at the health care site last week to display some of the equipment we have purchased in the last year, thanks to the many contributions of our communities.

Items we have purchased included three patient lifts for Jackson House, two Vital Sign monitors, a heavy duty defibrillator, two pressure reduction mattresses and an ultrasound machine to which we contributed moneys.

The money has been raised mainly through sales at the Health Care showcase and at the thrift shop. Members work long hours to sort donated items, clean them and display them for sale.
