The Bennett and Albert County Health Care (BACH) Foundation is a charitable organization that provides funds for the Albert County Health and Wellness Centre and many community initiatives including Sistema-Hillsborough, Tele-Drive, Literacy Express, the Imagination Library, spin bikes in classrooms and Connecting Albert County.
A lot of work has been taking place to move forward on the priorities of the Community Health Needs Assessment, covering Hillsborough to Alma. Below, you will find the 10 priorities with an update of what is happening under each. Many of the initiatives listed below are supported by the Bennett and Albert County Health Care (BACH) Foundation.
The Albert County Health and Wellness Centre has changed its hours. Please note current hours below. For appointments in Riverside-Albert or Hillsborough, or information about other services, call 882-3100.
We have an adult learning program right in Albert County, in Riverside Albert; a partnership between the Albert County Health & Wellness Centre (which provides the classroom) and the South East Regional Adult Learning Board. One of the graduates wrote of his experience in the program. According to Jim, he and his wife, Mariann, went back to school “largely to encourage others.” Mariann started the program first but had to stop for a year due to a stroke. Once Mariann was well enough to return to the classes, Jim went with her.
Both Jim and Mariann graduated in Spring 2016 and had the exactly the same grade (an average of 77% for all their courses). Jim says he even got a job out the program. After their graduation was publicized, Jim received a call that eventually led to a new job—Pastor of the Albert Mines Baptist Church.
“Old Dog, New Tricks” was a classroom assignment by Jim Rae. See what he wrote below:
