Donations to foundation improve the lives of Fair View residents

Throughout the year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation gives individuals and businesses the opportunity to take an active role in impacting local healthcare. Fundraising is done through events, as well as through memorial contributions, general donations, employee giving initiatives and more.

Each dollar raised by the foundation is put toward community education and programs, scholarship programs, and medical equipment. Thanks to the generous donations that were given in 2015, a number of items have been approved for purchase and will be used to make a positive difference in the lives of Mile Bluff patients and residents.

Adjust-A-Sink for Fair View Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
Regardless of your age, getting pampered is a relaxing treat. With this in mind, the residents of Fair View Nursing & Rehabilitation Center keep the beauty salon quite busy as they have their hair washed, set, and even permed. Thanks to the generosity of Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation, the time at the salon is even more relaxing for those residents looking to further enhance their natural beauty.

Recently, an Adjust-A-Sink system was installed at Fair View. As the name suggests, the sink is adjustable and can move up and down to meet the height of a resident. Prior to this installation, residents transferred from their wheelchair into a salon chair, because the old sink was not adjustable. Now residents can remain in their wheelchairs while having their hair done, which makes the experience even safer for them.

It is through the generous donations of businesses and individuals, that the foundation is able to purchase this equipment. Not only do purchases like this improve the lives of Mile Bluff's patients and residents, they also enhance the quality of care Mile Bluff provides.
