The Lending Cupboard staff announces hours for the holiday season

Published

2 minute read

Red Deer, Alberta – Dec. 3, 2021 – In order to make sure that clients can pick up any needed medical equipment prior to the Christmas season, staff at The Lending Cupboard would like to announce hours of operation for over the holidays.

“This year, we at The Lending Cupboard really feel that it’s important to allow our staff to spend time with their families over the holiday season. Because of that, and because Christmas falls over a weekend, we’ve decided that we will be closed between Christmas and New Year’s this year,” said Dawna Morey, executive director.

“Because of that, we want residents to be prepared so that if they are going to have surgeries, they can come in and see us before we leave on the 24th of December at 2 p.m.,” she said.

The Lending Cupboard will re-open for regular hours on Jan. 3rd.

Morey did emphasize that even with the holiday hours, there is no need for anyone to be concerned about accessing equipment in the event of an emergency.

“We all have emergencies in our lives, and in the case of emergencies people can still call us, and those calls will be monitored for emergencies only,” she said, adding they can call the regular office number of 403-356-1678.

“In those cases, we will be here to provide equipment.”

For inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us.

Health Basics was my Kick Start to a Healthier Weight

Published on

Editor’s note: The concepts outlined in this article are important and can be adapted to our current isolated lifestyle.

Health Basics was my Kick Start to a Healthier Weight

I am a retired nurse so I know quite a bit about living healthy. However over my last year of work, I had a sedentary job and I felt tired so I did not put as much energy into my own lifestyle and my weight crept up. I was getting a lot of heartburn and I knew weight loss and lifestyle are the first line treatment.

So, after I retired I asked my doctor to send me to Health Basics. It was good to go every week, to have to be accountable, to have others to discuss my choices with as well as to pick up on things from class that I had let slide. I went through the 8 week program and lost 9 pounds. As I know how important it is to continue living healthy and be accountable to myself, I rejoined TOPS which I was a member of a number of years ago. I also continued with exercise classes and yoga at the Golden Circle and now I am down 17 pounds just over 4 months after I started down this path. I am feeling great: stronger, fitter and I have almost no heartburn. Health Basics has helped me to enjoy retirement!”

PS: “I knew Health Basics is a great kick start on healthy living as my husband had attended it years ago when he was diagnosed with diabetes. He followed the class recommendations and has lost more than 75 pounds over the years and feels great too.”
