Hats off to Stettler’s home care staff for their work

Dear editor,

I wonder if many people realize the wonderful asset that we have in Stettler, as I was totally unaware of this asset until recently. I am referring to our home care staff and the wonderful work they do. I was under the impression that they checked on the elderly people in their homes to ensure they were okay with their medication and had a visit with them.

I also did not know that these ladies are well trained nurses and give you first rate care. They are also concerned above and beyond the call of duty.

My wife recently had a major operation and after she came home from the city she got really sick. The home care nurses saw the problem and referred her at once to her doctor, Dr. Lockhat, and thanks to both parties, she is now on the mend.

Having home care support, this allows the patient to remain at home.

So if you ever have to use our home care nurses, you can be sure you will be treated with 100 per cent efficiency.

Jim MacDonald
