Bridgewater Pharmasave Keeps Giving to Giving Circle

wgcwalker2019Allowing Intensive Care patients to get out of bed and walk with some ease.

This was the goal of the Intensive Care Unit team at South Shore Regional Hospital when they made their pitch for two specialized walkers to the Health Services Foundation's Charm Diamond Centres’ Women’s Giving Circle attendees in the fall of 2019.

The ICU team felt these RoWalkers were an invaluable resource for critically ill patients eligible for early mobilization. As these patients have numerous devices still attached to them, they needed a walker that could safely secure these devices so patents can stand and walk with some ease.

While the team’s pitch didn’t win them the $10,000 in funding needed to make these specialized walkers a reality, it did spark the interest of Tari Mansfield, Co-Owner of Bridgewater’s Pharmasave.

Through discussions with the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore and the Intensive Care Unit team, Bridgewater Pharmasave recently purchased a RoWalker for ICU patients at South Shore Regional Hospital.

It’s true – together, a healthy future is in our hands. Thank you Bridgewater Pharmasave for investing in the health of our community.
