John’s story “I just want to be good to the people that are good to me, “says John Hoff. “ I was taught that way.” John recently made a donation to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation in honour of Sheila Mackenzie of the Integrated Health Network (IHN) at the Campbell River Hospital. Retired from BC Hydro and active in Square, Round and Ballroom Dancing, John is the picture of health and a testament to being active at any age. However, John was living with depression and it was taking a toll on his health. During a visit to his family physician, Dr. Proctor, it was suggested that he explore the benefits of working with a support team like the ladies at IHN. Through the guidance and support from Sheila, John began studying Mindful Meditation as a way to help with his depression. “Mindfulness is moment to moment, non-judgmental awareness, cultivated by paying attention,” states Sheila MacKenzie, Nurse Leader for Integrated Health Network. story continued on next page

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | FRIDAY, MAY 17, 2013

“Many people are first drawn to the practice of Mindfulness because of stress or pain of one kind or another. Mindfulness is a way of BEING and of befriending ourselves and our experience. This is strengthened through the practice of Meditation.” The Campbell River Integrated Health Network (IHN) offers programs and services for people with Chronic Conditions.  It is an interdisciplinary team consisting of 36 Physicians, 2 Registered Nurses, 1 Registered Dietitian, 1 Registered Social Worker, 1 Medical Office Assistant, and over 2500 clients.  It has been operating out of the Sunshine Wellness Centre in the Campbell River Hospital since 2008.  The team works collaboratively to support individuals; educate and counsel clients to develop autonomy, achieve personal health goals and work towards healthy life style changes, as well as support their emotional well being and quality of life. Now, John is living his life free of medication except for the occasional melatonin and “half an aspirin to help keep my heart healthy.” He believes that the support he received and the skills that he has learned through IHN have helped him to enjoy life, his friends and the activities that he loves. In addition to Mindful Meditation, he also actively participates in the weekly walking group at the Campbell River Common and frequents the gym facility at Strathcona Gardens, both programs supported by Campbell River Integrated Health Network. If you would like to learn more about the Integrated Health Network you can contact them at 250-850-2195.

We are also fundraising to purchase an Argon Laser System for Opthamology at a cost of $150,000. This equipment is currently not available in Campbell River and the addition of medical ophthalmology services is good news for Campbell River and North Vancouver Island. By having a medical ophthalmology service it improves services to residents who can obtain the necessary care here at home rather than involving travelling, particularly during inclement weather.
