There are many factors that contribute to the overall health of our local Richmond District. communities. Socioeconomic Factors, Living Conditions, Health & Well Being, Access to Healthcare Services all play a major role. As a recent Kidney Transplant recipient and having lived on Dialyses for 5 years, I understand how important all these factors are in maintaining a healthy life.
We have large elderly population in the Richmond district. During the current COVID19 pandemic, many of the elderly in our community are either immunosuppressed or have other lingering health issues which makes social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands even more important. Together we will get through this tough time and return as even stronger community.
