Will the paramedicine program help solve the health care woes in the community of Riondel?
Regional director Garry Jackman believes it’s a start.
The small east shore community has been playing catch-up since losing its dedicated community nurse a few years ago.
Jackman says the paramedicine program is only part of what’s being worked on.
Jackman says services from Creston’s better at home program are now being offered there, which is filling in some of the gaps.
Riondel is one of 13 rural communities in our area to get a paramedicine team.
