I attended the forum last evening. Very informative. Thank you for hosting this. We were encouraged to send feedback. One thing that I noticed in the picture of the proposed building plan, was a lack of attached hallways between the 3 resident wings. Was it done this way possibly to prevent resident wandering? My issue was with additional steps that will be required by staff, whether it be Housekeeping, Dietary, Nursing, Maintenance, or whomever. During a shift, if one of these individuals requires going from 1 hallway to another, they have to return to the main hallway on the South end, and then travel along this hallway until they get to the doorway for the wing they want. This floor plan could be an issue if there was a Code Blue, or other emergency that the worker needs assistance, and other staff cannot get there quickly. Another example with this proposed floor plan could be if there is a fire or maybe a Code Gray, where a horizontal evacuation is required. There could be congestion in that main hallway if you have First Responders going towards the situation, and staff and residents moving away from the situation. Additional hallways could easily have restricted access by using keypads or card-swipe capabilities. These doors would only be able to be opened by authorized individuals, and NOT residents or visitors. Just some thoughts. Again, thank you for the forum last evening.

Each room should have a ceiling lift as folks might be well when they move in but abilities deteriorate and moving to another room is unsettling and confusing for resident. The steps and ramps are a concern, would make it more difficult and unsafe for residents to move about and for wheelchairs to be pushed. Also moving stretchers would be a concern. Suggest sliding doors on the bathroom. Suggest desks in the rooms be portable as take up room and may not be used.

The overall presentation was well done and I believe fundraising will be much easier once the project is underway. In regards to ceiling lifts, I believe these should be in all rooms with at a minimum of the tracts installed during construction and lift apparatus purchased on an ongoing basis to have all rooms completed with lifts. Residents sometimes enter the facility not requiring a lift but conditions generally deteriorate and lifts are needed. As outlined in the presentation many folks will be familiar with their wing /pod based on the wall colour of area. Residents conditions will change and then moving to a room with a lift will increase confusion and be unsettling to the resident. Lifts also assist staff in the provision of care and staff safety. I also hope the proposed plan of having steps /ramp in the wings be reviewed as this seems to be an accident waiting to happen for residents. Ambulation is encouraged and folks will surely fall while navigating their way to the dining area physio or just out walking. Also pushing geriatric chairs or wheelchairs up and down ramps is not easily done on an ongoing basis. Anson has sliding doors on bathrooms which I think work well. I also think the proposed desks in the resident rooms should be portable so residents who do not use them can have them removed to allow more room for their specialized chairs etc. I was pleased to hear input from long-term care staff in all mics facilities will be accessed. Feel free to contact me if clarification is needed regarding comments.
