St. Vincent’s: Brock Fahrni
Brock Fahrni is home to 148 residents, many of whom are veterans of Canada’s armed forces.
Residential Care Bus
Thanks to generous donors, a new bus is now available to residents. Regular bus outings offer welcome breaks from the daily routines in care homes. Residents often have to share rooms, and personal freedom is restricted by mobility challenges. Outings are tailored to the residents’ special needs and interests, with trips ranging from a visit to old neighbourhoods or favourite restaurants, and to community events like Remembrance Day services or the Chinese New Year parade.
Providence Health Care and Tapestry Foundation staff, donors and volunteers gathered on September 18 at Brock Fahrni to welcome the new residential care bus.
The new bus is now serving more than 300 elders who make their home in St. Vincent’s: Brock Fahrni, Youville Residence and Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.
