Six resident rooms received a valuable upgrade last week in the Personal Care Home unit at Riverview. A ceiling lift is a stationary lifting device mounted on a rail system that hydraulically lifts and transfers patients in a sling-seat between a bed and a chair or wheelchair.

They are a very valuable tool to support residents of RHC in their daily lives, ensuring that they have the full opportunity to get out of their beds to a position of mobility so they may participate in activities as fully as possible in all opportunities presented.

These pieces of equipment are important for preventing injuries during lifts and moves to staff and residents alike.

These ceiling lifts were made possible by the generosity of donors. Thank you!
