WE WALK! For Your Comfort and Care is an event in support of patient, resident and client comforts at Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC) and Providence Care.
This exciting event is designed to engage KHSC and Providence Care staff, their family and friends in raising money for the Comfort and Care of our patients, residents and clients while enjoying a fun and active day together. Teams can choose to direct their proceeds to KHSC and/or Providence Care.
How are “Comfort and Care” funds allocated? Comfort and care funds are used as a last resort option for patients who are experiencing challenges related to their care. These may be related to delays in discharge, costs of parking or medication, stocking compassion carts, providing dental work, travel costs (such as a ride home after being discharged) and virtually anything that provides psychosocial comfort. Social workers follow a process to ensure that funds are allocated only to those who have demonstrated a need and who have exhausted other options available to them.
