Taking the steps to recovery hand in hand with Covenant Health.
At one time or another, the need for health care affects all of us. Supporting Covenant Foundation Lottery is an investment for every Albertan to ensure Covenant Health can provide the best care possible for our loved ones, our communities, everyone one of us.
Where would I be without the care and support I received when I had my stroke? I honestly don’t know. There aren’t enough words for all that I want to say to the Covenant Health staff — who understand the importance of what they do and that it’s so much more than a job. When you enter the hospital as a patient, you are vulnerable, and you need to be treated gently and with respect. So having staff that can take care of your medical needs and your mental health challenges is essential. When I had my stroke, I was in so much denial I couldn’t even fathom what recovery would look like. The staff understood where I was and met me there. They were able to offer me the support I needed, both physically and mentally. Their care and compassion were paramount to my healing and in me taking the first monumental step in accepting that I had had a stroke. I’m where I am today because of their care, and I feel fortunate that I can help by sharing my story and the amazing work done by Covenant Health. Thank you to all my health care heroes!
