Residents at six Bridges Community Living facilities will be getting a huge boost from the Calgary Flames Foundation.
The foundation presented a $23,000 cheque, which will help support seniors in their mental and physical well-being.
The donation will help purchase stationary bikes, treadmills, mini Todo machines and a shuffleboard table to enhance the lives of over 400 residents in five apartment buildings and one of Bridges Community Living’s lodges.
“This new recreation equipment will help with supporting the physical and mental fitness of the 104 residents at Waskasoo Towers and will be a huge stress reliever during the Covid-19 pandemic,” Carol Halitsky a resident at Waskasoo Towers said.
“Having this equipment will support residents who cannot go outside and who have confinement issues and unable to participate in outdoor activities such as walking in the winter season”.
Bridges Community Living applied for support funding under the Calgary Flames Foundation Covid-19 Community Support Program.
