Posted 19 December 2014 at 12:00 am


As health care providers at HCR Home Care, we are truly blessed to work in a community filled with compassionate and driven individuals. We would like to recognize, and sincerely thank, Carl Sargent. Through St. Vincent de Paul in Albion, Carl has helped coordinate a loan closeta place for community members to borrow needed medical equipment.

This includes hospital beds, walkers, wheelchairs, shower benches/chairs, bedside commodes, and canes. Carl goes above and beyond to make this equipment available to our patients on a daily basis. The loan closet provides quick access for locals to borrow supplies without the usual expense. With Carl’s leadership and passion, this loan closet is one of the most helpful resources we have seen in any community.

Words cannot express how appreciative all of the patients, families, and community members are of Carl’s efforts. If there were an honorary “Citizen of the Year Award” in Orleans County, we would nominate Carl every year. His passion and efforts to help improve the lives of our patients are profound, showcasing the true depth of his caring.

Additionally, we would like to increase awareness of this loan closet. Please consider donating any unused valuable medical equipment to St. Vincent de Paul in Albion (317 East State St.). It is very common that our patients are in dire need of medical items, and donations are always appreciated. Please contact any member of St. Vincent de Paul for donations. In keeping with the spirit of giving and community, several HCR employees are making financial donations to the organization.

From all of us at HCR, we hope you have a happy and safe winter season. We could not be more proud to serve such a wonderful region.

Thank you,

HCR Home Care
