Lloydminster Region Health Foundation’s Heartbeat of the Community Initiative.
We believe that to enhance our healthcare we need to provide the highest level of response when needed and sometimes that moment occurs outside of our urgent care facilities. Sometimes that moments happens when and where you least expect it!
For phase one of this initiative, we have teamed up with the community partners and extended our cardiac care beyond the hospital walls and emergency services by placing AED units within the Lloydminster region. These units are designed for public use making them an invaluable lifesaving tool for patrons of our senior care and public facilities.
Sudden cardiac arrest knows no boundaries! That is why for phase two we are taking this project to your key chains, with the “Key to Life” Program. Designed to carry two lifesaving aspirin to take at the onset of a cardiac event, these little key chain’s could be a lifesaver for you or your loved one.
The third phase Safety for Kids launched in fall of 2015 is based on the Home Alone Program created by Canada Safety Council which is designed to provide our youth with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when home alone for short periods of time. They will learn how to prevent problems, hand real-life situations and most importantly basic first aid skills along with what to do in the case of a medical emergency.
We believe that Mental Health is equal to physical health so have introduced phase four to give our community access to programs to target and improve their overall mental health. Our first project to fall in this phase is supporting a meditation program offered free of charge to our community members. See below for more information.
