The Antigonish Town and County Palliative Care Society recently presented an air mattress, cool mist humidifiers, dark towels, bed soaker pads and an oxygen concentrator to the palliative care team at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital. The society is able to purchase the equipment and provide other services to the clients that request home care through the generosity of memorial donations and events such as the Elsie Kelly Memorial Snowmobile Rally. Palliative care team physicians Dr. Mike MacKenzie (front, left) and Dr. Maureen Allen, society chair John R. MacDougall, society treasurer Anne Marie Long (back, left) social worker Barbara de Marsh, RN-nurse consultant Trish MacKay, RN-nurse consultant Frances Chisholm and nurse manager Charlene Porter gathered for the presentation.
