How We Help 


howwehelp

I am deeply impressed with the Boquete Health and Hospice organization, and its volunteers!  I may not be a volunteer, but I sure tell everyone who will listen what wonderful work you do--you do it with purpose and love!
 
I had an occasion about a year ago to contact Betty about a person in our church who was going to have a knee operation--in 4 or 5 days.  She was renting a small bedroom in a home nearby; there was not enough room for a wheelchair after the operation.  Our church Care Team lined up people to make sure she had meals, visitations, and transportation to her doctor, and offered to pick up any medications she would need. 
 
I called the Hospice, not knowing whether or not they would help our church since we had volunteers to help our member.  I was so impressed by the interest in our case and the immediate offer of assistance with a walker for the patient, and a (former) nurse to visit the patient once she returned to home.
 
Everything was set up in just 2-3 days.  The day of the operation we had our pray warriors at the church praying, and we felt good that we had everything ready for when the patient returned home.  The patient called me and said she was not having the operation and wanted to have a second opinion.
 
It was a good trial run for our church's Care Team, and the absolutely incredible response from the Hospice team. 
 
I had occasion to use their crutches for the inevitable sprained ankle.
 
I encourage all readers of this Health and Hospice article to keep it handy--you never know when you or a friend may need their services!

SAVE THE DATE! October 22nd

On October 22nd, 2017, from 11-3, Boquete Health and Hospice will present its first Health Fair at the Salon Arco Iris, Féria de las Flores y Café, promoting personal health and medical services to area residents--Expats, Panamanians and the Indigenous populations. We have invited local doctors, pharmacies, labs, David hospital representatives and the Boquete Social Security Clinic to present information about their various services.

This is a free event. Medical testing for blood pressure and glucose among others, will also be offered at no cost.

A complete hot meal, including a beverage and dessert, will be available at $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children.

Please come and learn about what medical services are available in our town, who the doctors are, and where their offices are located. It could save your life!

We would love to meet you all as well. See you there.
