Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Tenders awarded for construction projects

Sun Country Health Region is pleased to announce that tenders have been awarded for construction of two long term care projects.

A tender was awarded to Ledcor Construction Ltd. for $18,724.552 plus GST to build a new integrated facility in Radville to replace the Radville Marian Health Centre.

The new Radville facility will provide 25 long term care beds and five multipurpose beds, as well as space for an emergency department, medical clinic, laboratory services, diagnostic imaging, adult day program, therapies, home care and public health in about 4000 square metres.

The long term care area will be divided into two houses, with 12-13 residents in each “house.” The intent is to make a more home-like atmosphere for residents.

A tender was also awarded to T.L. Penner Construction Inc. for $10,915,550 plus GST to build an addition to the Redvers Health Centre.

The new wing will replace the current one built in 1967. It will provide 23 long term care beds and one multipurpose bed in about 2000 square metres.

The new wing will be divided into two “houses” with 12 residents in each, again to provide a homelike atmosphere for residents.

“Sun Country Health Region is pleased to see these new facilities become a reality for the communities,” says Pamela Haupstein, Interim Vice President, Finance and Corporate Services. “Construction began immediately and we will continue to work hard to remain on budget and on schedule. We expect that residents will be able to be moved into their new homes in 2013.”
