The Trentham Community Bank has again demonstrated its unwavering support for the local community by donating vital equipment for aged care residents at Trentham Health.
Representatives of the bank recently met with senior Central Highlands Rural Health staff to celebrate the growing collaborative partnership between the organisations.
Health service CEO Maree Cuddihy took the opportunity to express her deep appreciation for the Community Bank’s vital and ongoing support of the local Trentham community.
The event marked the formal receipt of $3,000 funding for the acquisition of a Vital Observations Machine, a high tech device that efficiently monitors and quickly alerts any irregularities in the various so-called ‘vital signs’ such as blood pressure, pulse rates and blood oxygen levels.
The bank also announced a further grant of $1,995 for the purchase of a patient transfer assist trolley which will enhance the safety and comfort of residents as they relocate from chairs, sofas or wheel chairs.
This new equipment promises to significantly improve the quality of care of aged care residents, which in turn leads to considerable enhancement to their quality of life.
After a comprehensive tour of the community health and aged care campus, the representatives discussed potential forms of future collaboration to advance their shared objective of enhancing the quality of life of residents within the Trentham district.
