Lions Club donates to Lifeline

NANAIMO – Lifeline provides “peace of mind” for medically at-risk clients through its Personal Emergency Response Service.

The Nanaimo Lions’ Club contributed a $1,000 gift to Nanaimo Lifeline.

Lifeline provides “peace of mind” for medically at-risk clients and their families through its Personal Emergency Response Service.

Users push their “personal help button” and a Nanaimo-based Lifeline representative will communicate with the client to determine what level of assistance is required, and that help will be sent.

The Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation, which owns and operates Nanaimo Lifeline, established the Silent Guardian Fund to help those with fewer resources afford the minimal monthly fee. The average age of a Nanaimo Lifeline client is 71 years and 77 per cent are women – a $400 donation can support a Lifeline client for an entire year.

Nanaimo Lions have supported the foundation for more than two decades and given almost $25,000 for equipment and services throughout the hospital, as well as to the Silent Guardian Fund.
