Wheelchair Scale Made Possible by Diamond Family

Once again we would like to thank the Diamond Family for their generous $12,000 donation to The Centre in honor of their parents Dora and Albert Diamond. With the guidance of Bonnie Antel and Robert Diamond, The Centre was able to use the donation to purchase three Digital Dual Ram Wheelchair Scales. One is seen in the accompanying photograph. The weighing of residents on a regular basis is an important component of our care. The results of the weighing are used to assess the well being of each resident with abnormal weight loss and are used as a guide for modifications to diets and/or the ordering of diagnostic tests (in some cases) to evaluate if there is an underlying medical issue that may result in treatment.
