Cuero Health: Cuero Community Fan Drive kicks off

Cuero Regional Hospital and Whispering Oaks Rehab & Nursing are kicking off a fan drive for the elderly.

Many seniors find it challenging to stay cool during the hot Texas summer months, especially those on a fixed income. Exposure to extreme heat can be deadly for the elderly. Fans are a way to provide some control over utility costs as well as help to lower body temperatures, according to a news release from the hospital.

Fans will be accepted through 5 p.m. Friday at either Cuero Regional Hospital, 2550 N. Esplanade St., or Whispering Oaks Rehab & Nursing, 105 Hospital Drive.

Those who wish to receive fans can fill out vouchers available at Whispering Oaks Rehab & Nursing. Fan distribution will be Monday for as long as donations are available.

“Leaders at both of our facilities recognized a need and wanted to provide donations as well as invite the public to participate in providing relief from the heat to area seniors,” said Emily Weatherly, marketing and development director at Cuero Regional Hospital. “We understand many of our elderly have restricted funds, and if we can provide some relief to their pocketbook as well as help them to maximize efficiency and comfort of cooler air temperatures in their homes this summer, we want to do our part to help.”

For more information, contact Vicki Bothe at Whispering Oaks Rehab & Nursing at 361-243-6571.
