The Brome-Missisquoi Perkins Hospital Foundation, with the generous contribution of TELUS, is very pleased to announce the distribution of 15 electronic tablets connected to the LTE wireless Internet network. As part of their Mobility for the Future program’s COVID-19 emergency assistance, TELUS is providing free mobile devices to help isolated seniors, hospitalized patients and vulnerable Canadians.
For its part, the BMP Foundation has made 12 speakers with Bluetooth connectivity and 19 aroma diffusers available to patients in several locations. These devices including electronic tablets will be available to seniors in long-term care facilities at the BMP Hospital, as well as to seniors in the region’s CHSLDs who are isolated because of the context of COVID-19.
“On behalf of the staff, the residents of the CHSLD and myself, I would like to thank the BMP Foundation for these donations which will make life easier for our residents during this period of confinement. This generous attention will go a long way in helping to comfort them. “Isabelle Gauthier, Head of Residential Unit at the CHSLD of Sutton.
“Thank you for making a difference for our residents! It is much appreciated, especially in these tougher times we are living in. Residents will be able to enjoy the music and the pleasant smell of the diffusers. ” Karine Moore, Chief of Service at the Cowansville CHSLD.
Since visits to health care institutions are always limited, the Foundation hopes to bring some comfort to hospitalized and isolated people by allowing them to make contact with their loved ones, have fun and bring a little joy to their days. The BMP Foundation once again thanks TELUS for their generous donation of equipment, and all the donors who have made this project possible.
