The talented team members in the Bariatric Unit work with residents living with the complexities of bariatric disease. Their supportive, patient, and unwavering care helps these residents to regain control of their lives and to live without the stigma and marginalization that they would deal with on a regular basis living in the community.
Imagine what it’s like to be isolated from family and friends, with restrictions on your normal routine that prevent you from engaging in life’s simple pleasures. Imagine not being able to go out to eat or see your friends. To not be able to move about as you wish and to be shut off from the world.
Through your generous donations, the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation is proud to support the work that the Bariatric team does, providing much-needed funding for ceiling track lifts, supportive beds, a new bathing suite, and other items that are essential to the daily activities and safety of our residents and team. With your help, our residents not only live but they thrive!
