Grants help upgrade BV Manor

Six bathrooms were updated with vinyl bathtub and wall surrounds along with grab bars. The areas looks much better and are now more efficient and easier to maintain.

The Manor will be 40 years old in the coming year. As can be expected, there is a need to ensure that replacements of certain areas are provided before maintenance costs rise too high.

This low income facility for seniors is indeed fortunate to receive financial assistance to provide such needs. Low income, non-profit housing may not be able to afford costly improvements.

Grants, such as this, are truly helpful as they allow for improvements to be done in a timely manner.
