Wheelchairs, walkers and assistive devices
All wheelchairs and walkers must be included in our home-wide inventory. Items are labeled and a computerized inventory maintained. The inventory is needed to help us provide routine maintenance and cleaning.
Power wheelchairs and scooters
Power wheelchairs can add to an individual’s quality of life by facilitating freedom of movement, and enhancing a sense of independence. Due to space limitations, motorized scooters are not permitted in the Home. Residents are expected to drive
their power wheelchairs in a safe manner at all times. On-going concerns with safe operation could result in the inability to continue with the use of a power chair and a manual chair may be substituted. A member of the health care team will conduct driving tests to ensure the safety of the resident operating the wheelchair.
