Your Donations At Work

Dr.Dana Hawley and Dr.Heidi Higgins visit with Cara House resident, David Bailey as Laura Serroul, RN, demonstrates how to use Vital Signs monitors that were purchased by the Northside Community Guest Home Foundation. Dr. Hawley and Dr. Higgins have each donated $5000.00 to the Foundation, making it possible to purchase equipment to enhance resident care at the Guest Home. The Guest Home has named resident rooms, the "Dunvegan Suite" in memory of Dr. Hawley's grandmother, Catherine (MacLellan) Beaton and the "Glace Bay Suite" in memory of Dr. Higgins' grandmother, Grace Furey.
