Created in 1988 in honor of two businessmen and former mayors of Bedford, Joseph Oscar-Lévesque and Mr. Richard Craighead, the Foundation monitors the health care offered by the CLSC and CHSLD Bedford for aging people the region.
It fulfills its mission by purchasing equipment to facilitate the administration of health care, transportation, patient transfer and comfort. The Foundation makes its concerns known to those responsible for health care, in order to recognize and respect the needs of the population of the greater area of Bedford. Over the years the Foundation has invested over $500,000 raised by various donors in the region into the community.
The Foundation has recently received a donation of $10,000 from Graymont and the Caisse Desjardins de Bedford has agreed to donate $10,000 per year for the next five years.
The Board of Directors strives keep administrative costs low in order to devote the most money possible to the well-being of the population.
Over the years, the Foundation has acquired an array of equipment (patients lifts, electric beds, defibrillators, mattress fall arrest systems, rockers, air conditioning, etc.) to facilitate the provision of care, travel and comfort of patients. Close collaboration between the Foundation and the staff of the CLSC/CHSLD Bedford allows better response to the needs and promotes the improvement of care provided to patients.
The Foundation helped by making additional investments to improve the living conditions of the elderly Bedford Regions : initial investment for building the retirement home Les Villas des Rivières in Bedford, buying a TV for the benefit of all residents, improve the landscape, and the construction of an extension cabanon style to the residence.
Finally, the Board of Directors of the Foundation are taking a stand and using their voice to recognize and respect the needs of the local population of Bedford and the region served by the Ministry of Health, through the Center for Health and Social Services CIUSSS Estrie – CHUS, Installation La Pommeraie.
