Port Furnishes Resident Lounge at Lions Manor
Port of Argentia has donated $5,000 to the Trinity Conception Placentia Health Foundation for the purchase of furniture to establish a Resident Lounge at Lions Manor Nursing Home, Unit 1.
Port Chairperson Wayne Power states, “The Port recognizes that Lion’s Manor is vital to the community which we serve and understands the value of providing a private setting for residents to host and entertain family members and visitors. Establishing a resident lounge will do just that and provide comfort and a sense of belonging to long-term care residents”.
Don Coombs, Chief Development Officer, Trinity Conception Placentia Health Foundation, says, “We very much appreciate the thoughtfulness and generosity of Port of Argentia in making this donation and furnishing a lounge where long-term care residents can host family members and loved ones in a comfortable setting. During COVID, visitor restrictions and social distancing measures severely restricted interaction between residents and their families. This newly created lounge will go well beyond simply providing a place to meet and will raise the spirits and improve the quality of life of Lions Manor residents”.
Port CEO Scott Penney adds, “The Port takes great pride in identifying a solution to a pressing need in our community and we hope this contribution will improve the experience of visitors and residents at the facility”.
