Therapeutic Bathtubs enhance comfort, warmth, and relaxation for our Residents

Therapeutic Bathtubs. Regular bathing is important, but it is one of the most time consuming and difficult things that staff do in long-term care, having what are called Therapeutic Bathtubs is important as many residents cannot get into a bathtub on their own, and require a special tub that is supportive and requires residents to be lifted in. Over time, these tub components wear out, and the tubs must eventually be replaced despite not being something that we are regularly funded for.

This project is for the replacement and/or upgrade of 22 tubs at our sites with Penner Bathing tubs. Our priority is to begin with three that most require an upgrade, the tubs in Camrose at Memory Lane, Eastview, and Westview. The cost of a single tub is just above $40,000 dollars. This is an ambitious project, and one we can't do without your support so please consider making a donation towards this transformative project.
