Macedon Ranges residents needing palliative care in the home will soon have the much needed end of life equipment installed in their home more efficiently due to the new, larger van recently purchased by Kyneton Health due to the generosity of donors.
The van will arrive in the coming weeks and to support our Community Nursing team who provide palliative care in the home services across the region. This new vehicle will fit all of the the necessary equipment without needing to disassemble and reassemble larger items so the vital care can commence as soon as possible.
The idea to fundraise for a new van came from local business owner Troy Upfield from Wooling Hill Memorial Estate. He wanted to raise funds for something that would make a real impact to his community through his charity event in October 2022. The idea became a reality thanks to his collaboration with Lisa Fowler who agreed to be the major sponsor for the event, Mount Macedon Realty - Wooling Hill Run 2022. Funds for the van also came from general donations to the health services from very generous members of the community.
CHRH's CEO, Maree Cuddihy and Acting Director of Nursing for Kyneton Health, Sue Whitfield met with Troy, Lisa and event participant Karen O'Sullivan to inspect the make and model to ensure it is fit for purpose.
