During the pandemic, Imperial funded the purchase of several iPads at the Manor so that residents could stay connected with their loved ones. This past Valentine’s Day, Imperial staff delivered Swiss Chalet lunches to all residents and staff as a show of support during the lockdown period.
A trishaw bike is now in service at Marshall Gowland Manor, which is a long-term care facility in Sarnia that’s operated by the County of Lambton. The unique bicycle was purchased through a donation by Imperial. Site Manager, Kimberly Haas was honoured to help unveil it to staff and residents who gathered outdoors for a small celebration complete with an ice cream truck, “The pandemic created feelings of isolation within the community, and residents of long-term care were quite impacted. We hope the trishaw bike will promote getting outside more and contribute to mental well-being. Imperial is proud of the relationship that we have with Marshall Gowland Manor and the County of Lambton, and we hope to continue building on this partnership in the future.”
