The REDS provides assistance for regional dialysis patients in the Light Regional and Barossa Council areas. This service has been made possible as a result of the generosity of Elders Rural Services who recently donated $10,000 to Herd of Hope.
Elders Rural Services held their annual conference recently raising $10,000 which they kindly donated to Herd of Hope.
Herd of Hope have used this donation to initiate the Regional Express Dialysis Service (REDS). REDS provides assistance for regional dialysis patients in the Light Regional and Barossa Council areas once all other options that a rural patient is eligible for have been utilised.
Assistance is given to alleviate the financial and personal stress on the patient and their carer so that they can reduce the cost to get the patient to their required treatment.
