  SERVICE PROJECTS

  NORTHWOOD IN TOUCH

Our club is a satellite for Northwood In Touch, a personal response system to be used in emergencies. This unit has personal reminders that can be programmed into the unit, such as reminding the client to take medication, when a home care worker is coming, etc. As well as being a valuable service activity, this is a fund-raiser for our club as we get fees for installation and monthly maintenance per unit.

For additional information about these units, contact:

 Lion Frank Meister fbmeister@ns.sympatico.ca in the New Ross area,

Lion Jim Barkhouse jimb@ns.sympatico.ca in the Chester and Chester Basin areas.
