Westcap Sends Virtual Hugs to Long-term Care Residents Across the Province
COVID-19 has left many seniors in long-term care homes feeling lonely and disconnected from their families and friends. To help reconnect our residents to their families, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has partnered with Westcap Mgt. Ltd. (Westcap) to help them reconnect virtually. Working closely with the COVID-19 Hospital Fund, a collaboration between St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation, Royal University Hospital Foundation and Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation, Westcap has donated $250,000 towards the purchase of over 330 iPads, and the cost of the data plans. The iPads will be distributed to SHA long-term care homes across our province.
