Carmelite House requires additional Geriatric Positioning Chairs at an approximate cost of $ 2,300 each. These specialized positioning chairs enable our less mobile residents to leave their rooms more often in order to participate in daily activities throughout this long term care facility. They are very important for improved quality of life for residents.
This long term care facility is also in need of additional Pressure Relief Mattresses at an approximate cost of $ 4,700 each. These mattresses are somewhat portable and as a result can be easily moved between rooms when required. They are extremely important to our residents who are unable to leave their beds for long periods of time. The mattress helps with the prevention of pressure ulcers and is an important component of the Wound and Skin Care Management Program.
Donations can be made at any time and can be restricted for the benefit of the residents of Carmelite House. Such donations received will be applied to the next major purchase that takes place for the residents of this facility.
