Red Deer Hospice Expansion to serve up to 100 more families each year

Published

red deer hospice
The addition and renovation at Red Deer Hospice is nearing completion!  It’s a beehive of activity there and Red Deer Hospice needs your help.
Since Red Deer Hospice opened back in 2005, more than 1,300 residents and their families have been cared for.  With occupancy rates typically exceeding 90 percent, it was important to take on a major expansion.
Six new private rooms are being added, as well as additional soaker tubs and shower rooms and two large multi-purpose rooms for respite care and day programs.   With this growth it’s also necessary to enhance the kitchen, nursing station, and family areas.
It all points to the important role hospice plays in the community.. and it’s only going to get more important as the addition of 6 rooms means up to 100 more residents and families will attend Red Deer Hospice every year.

Edmonton community members explore using the Emergency Room as an entry point to transitional housing

Published

on

Is there a better way than simply releasing a person experiencing homelessness from the hospital back onto the street? It creates an endless cycle of emergency room visits and escalating costs, not to mention the challenges the patients face in having a successful recovery.

As we continue to look for solutions to homelessness in our city, a group of community members from different fields and backgrounds met recently to brainstorm and discuss alternatives to the practice of releasing patients into a state of homelessness.

That’s a long way of saying that if someone experiencing homelessness comes to an emergency room with a need for medical aid, the only alternative once treated is to release the patient back onto the street.  The chances of recovery are greatly diminished, while the probability of return visits increases.  The costs are severe, both to the person experiencing homelessness and to our ever-more expensive health care system.

Spearheading the initiative is Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti, a veteran emergency room physician at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and a Professor at the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta.

Watch this short video to hear from some of those involved and to better understand the concept and learn why there is a growing groundswell of support for this idea.

 

There are many ways that people can get involved with this initiative.  It’s common sense that housing and health are interconnected. Finding solutions to chronic homelessness and easing pressure on our health care system is something we can all get behind.

Please contact Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti directly to learn more about the project and how you can help:
