BATHING WILL BE EASIER THANKS TO THE ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION #289

August 6, 2021

Over the years, The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #289 in Tsawwassen has generously provided KinVillage with donations to purchase items for our Care Home, enhancing the quality of care and life for residents.  We truly appreciate the Legion’s support as we continue to respond to the increasing needs of our residents and aging facilities.

This year, our priority is to widen the doorway to a bathing room.  The current door width is less than the standard 36 inches that allows access for residents using wider wheelchairs.  A widened doorway on the first floor room will benefit residents in larger wheelchairs who will no longer need to be transported as far, and to another floor, to be bathed.   This indirectly benefits other residents as well as the bathing rooms on both floors can be more effectively utilized.

Our sincere thanks to the Members of Branch 289 for their generous $3,500 donation, enabling us to make this improvement for residents.
