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."
