St. Columban's Home and Hospice for the Elderly - Chun Cheon
The Home cares for the terminally sick and for Alzheimer sufferers and has an extensive Out Care Programme. The Home is now looking after 80 patients.
With six years’ experience of caring for elderly patients and due to changes in the Medical Insurance System, the Residents coming to this home for admission are in much more severe condition and in need of Nursing care. As a result the Home has to concentrate a lot on preventative care. Prevention of bedsores is a big area of need as the treatment of same is a big burden both financially and time-wise.
In 2010 we have helped them to purchase special mattresses that prevent bedsores.
