The provincial government has just announced a change in it's decision to end the free loan of CPAP equipment. CPAP equipment will instead be available for loan at a discounted rate through the Government of Saskatchewan.
The Lung Association, Saskatchewan applauds the Government of Saskatchewan for recognising the serious nature of sleep apnea and for re-thinking the proposed change to end the free loan program of Continuous Positive Air Pressure equipment. It is still our desire to support those impacted by this change. As such, the Sleep Apnea Support Group meetings are still planned to provide a venue to support patients and their families.
These meetings are free and open to people with sleep apnea, family members, caregivers, and friends.
