Agency Cooperation Brings Comfort to Hospice Patients

Auburn, Maine 7.30.13 - On July 24th Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice sold 14 electric patient beds from the Auburn Hospice House to Fryeburg Health Care Center for a total of $14. When the Hospice House decided it was time to upgrade their beds, instead of throwing them away, they looked for a way to re-use. "Our beds were still in great condition," said Karen Flynn, Director of Hospice for AHCH "so we asked our staff for ideas with what to do with them." Judy Abbott and Tamson Girard, hospice aides for AHCH, found the solution. While providing care for patients at the Fryeburg Health Care Center, Abbott and Girard noticed how the older model, non-electric beds proved challenging for both patients and staff alike. Flynn placed the call the Kelly Burden, Director of Nurses at Fryeburg Health Care Center, to offer the sale of the beds and Burden ecstatically accept. "It was like Christmas over here!" Burden exclaimed.
