Judith: I’m in a good place now.

Published

PCN Judith

Judith was in her early eighties and living on her own when she ran into health issues that made it unsafe to be alone. She is a poor senior and neither her or her family knew where she could go to live safely.

Her family physician set up an appointment with the RDPCN Elder Care Assessment Clinic which she attended with her daughter. Judith was very nervous and hesitant about this appointment. When she got there she found a group of supportive, empathetic, courteous and helpful health care professionals. They made her very comfortable and relaxed. The assessment was very valuable. It set a baseline for Judith’s present condition. Her medications were reviewed which helped Judith, her family and her Doctor know what was going on. They informed her of some valuable resources including physio at the hospital. In fact, the family states that they were very surprised how much they didn’t know about the senior supports available. Previously the fees she was paying privately for physio were draining her resources. The clinic bridged her with community supportive living options and she fell in love with Pine Lodge. Luckily for her they had space and she willingly moved in a few months later. Her biggest challenge then was to downsize her stuff.

Judith and her family know this move would not have been nearly as smooth without the Elder Care Assessment Clinic. They are shocked and amazed how her move and accessing resources for her health needs came together so well. The PCN connected her with the key resources she needed. Judith and her family found out there is a system for poor seniors, and the Elder Care Assessment clinic is a great way to connect with it. Judith is in a very good situation now.

YMCA of Northern Alberta Launches
“Move to Give” Campaign to Inspire the Community

Edmonton, Alberta, February 20 — YMCA of Northern Alberta is excited to announce a new event that will allow people to put their fitness to the test while raising funds for a great cause. 

Move to Give takes place April 4, 2020 at six different YMCA centres in Edmonton, Red Deer and Fort McMurray.

Everyone will have the opportunity to participate individually or as a team to complete either one three-hour indoor cycle challenge or choose from three one-hour fitness master classes, all while raising funds to provide life-changing experiences to those in need.

Funds raised at Move to Give will go towards removing financial barriers for individuals and families to get fitness memberships, for children to enroll in swim lessons or day camps, for youth to access programs that will equip them for success, for families to access emergency child care in times of need, or for individuals to participate in life-changing community outreach programs.

YMCA of Northern Alberta is proud to partner with ENMAX to put on this event. Both organizations believe in powering the potential of people and are excited for the ways Move to Give will help build strong kids, healthy families and thriving communities.

“ENMAX is proud to partner with the YMCA of Northern Alberta for this event,” said Diana Stephenson, Vice President Public Affairs, ENMAX. “Move to Give enables participants to put their own power behind the YMCA’s cause, and we’re excited to see how the communities of Edmonton, Fort McMurray and Red Deer will come together to help their communities thrive.”

Registration for Move to Give is now open.
