New van for Manor
The Champlain Local Health Integration Network’s (LHIN) recently provided funding to the Maxville Manor towards the purchase of a brand new nine-passenger wheelchair accessible van. Owned by Carefor Health & Community Services, the Manor received the van through Champlain Community Transportation Collaborative.
The Maxville Manor provides transportation options for residents, day program participants, and community members with a physical disability who require assistance getting to medical appointments or treatments. The Manor also provides transportation for shopping trips, recreational outings and social activities.
"The residents' travel experience is going to be so much better," said Phyllis Burtenshaw Lalonde, Director Outreach & Volunteer Services. "The windows are placed at a level where they can actually see the countryside much better. We're all very happy. It's a real step-up."
