Sooke and Juan de Fuca Health Foundation Provides Much-Needed Medical Equipment to Ayre Manor
April 22, 2021
As if dealing with the challenges of a pandemic wasn't enough of a task for the people who make up West Coast Family Medical Clinic, they recently answered a very special call from the residents and the amazing staff at Ayre Manor, Sooke's seniors' housing complex.
While residents' urinary problems often required an arduous journey to a hospital by ambulance, a recent donation of a bladder scanner has greatly improved the ability of health care providers to deliver rapid point of care results.
"Without this generous donation, our residents would still be going to hospital for assessments that sometimes take hours. Having it done at Ayre Manor takes minutes", says Ayre Manor's Linda Quigley, Director of Care. Having access to a bladder scanner also allows medical staff to differentially diagnose conditions when time is of the essence.
Hats off to Dr Tracey Forsberg who approached the recently formed Sooke and Juan de Fuca Health Foundation to partner up with all of the staff at West Coast Family Medical Clinic in a fundraising effort that has elevated the care available to Ayre Manor's residents.
