The Meadows adds AED
The Meadows Assisted Living community has recently purchased an Automatic
External Defibrillator (AED) to add to their crash cart with financial assistance
from Regional Medical Center’s Fund and Resource Development Advisory Committee. The Good Neighbor Society is pleased to have partnered with RMC on
this potentially life-saving equipment purchase.
In recent years, automated external defibrillators have become a familiar sight in
many workplaces and community buildings across America because of their ability to save the life of someone stricken by a sudden cardiac arrest. Nearly every
day, an organization with an AED program saves the life of a team member, customer or community member. Those persons on the scene with an AED were able
to treat the victim before EMS responders arrive, so it is important for workplaces to have an “AED program” that
includes employees trained in CPR and AED use. It was the goal of the Good Neighbor Society to have the potential of saving the life of a tenant, team member or visitor at The Meadows if the need arises. GNS also have 3 AEDs
in the Good Neighbor Home, their long term care facility.
The Meadows is located on the Good Neighbor Society’s CCRC Campus in Manchester. The Good Neighbor Society has been serving the Manchester/Delaware County area for over 50 years, with The Meadows opening its doors
in March 2000. The Good Neighbor Society has recently completed the necessary application with the State of
Iowa to secure the designation of CCRC – Continuous Care Retirement Community. This new status will allow for
Independent Living services to be added to GNS’s 33-acre campus as well as making the GNS eligible for some significant tax credits.
Recently David Snyder, CEO of the Good Neighbor Society accepts a check from Rachel York, representing RMC’s Fund and Resource
Development Advisory Committee. Also present for the presentation were Marcia Burkle, RMC Auxiliary Coordinator and FRDAC member (right) and Cathy Werner Good Neighbor Society CFO (left).
