A new change table will soon be in use at the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex.

The recreation department announced the purchase of a much needed electric adjustable change table for the aquatic and fitness centre earlier this week.

The CDRC was able to purchase the table because of the support from the Castlegar-Selkirk Lions Club, School District 20, community sponsors CMAW Local 2300, PPWC Local 1, West Kootenay Toy Run and CUPE Local 2262.

“We have a number of patrons whom require a height adjustable table to be able to transfer in and out of their wheel chairs and attend to changing independently,” said  Jim Crockett, Manager of CDRC.

“We also have a number of patrons who are assisted with changing and cannot lie flat. The height adjustability is helpful for the care attendants and the elevating head rest is helpful for patrons who cannot lie down flat.”

On behalf of the CDRC staff and patrons, we would like to thank all of the community sponsors.

“Your generosity helps to support the needs of our community,” said Crockett.
