Nelson CARES’ Kootenay Seniors program has received a brand-new wheelchair, a specialized “transfer chair” that allows for smoother transfer of users from chair to vehicle. Originally donated to Broader Horizons who in turn kindly offered it to Kootenay Seniors, the chair comes from Art Everton and his daughter Nicola. This is a most generous donation that through Kootenay Seniors will help other seniors get out and around in a variety of ways. We’re most especially looking forward to using it with the soon-to-be-launched Kootenay Seniors Volunteer Driver Program where, together with the Kootenay Carshare Accessible Van, it will allow us to transport seniors with serious mobility challenges.
Thanks Art and Nicola! Your kindness is most appreciated.
