New Patio Area Enjoyed by RHL Residents and Staff

July 15, 2015

The timing of completion of a new outdoor patio area at River Heights Lodge (RHL), North Battleford couldn't have been better.

Residents and staff of the 98-bed Long-Term Care (LTC) home have enjoyed ample opportunity this spring and summer to be outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine in the beautiful new patio area made possible by the River Heights Lodge Auxiliary.

The Auxiliary fully funded the $34,906 total cost of the project aimed at enhancing the quality of life for RHL residents. The dedicated members of the RHL Auxiliary volunteered much time and energy over the past three years to raise the funds through special events, raffles, silent auctions, and other activities at the Lodge. 

"We are extremely grateful for the RHL Auxiliary and for the new outdoor space their volunteer efforts and generosity made possible," said RHL Facility Manager Kelly Day.

"The east side of RHL didn't have an outdoor space which was accessible to the residents and family. The new patio area offers residents and their family members a peaceful place to relax, spend time with loved ones, and take part in outdoor activities such as gardening and barbecues," Day stated.

The space includes flowers and greenery, patio furniture, a concrete patio floor, security fencing, and a specially installed door to permit safe and ready access for residents from inside the facility.

The ribbon was cut by RHL Auxiliary President Marj Morrison.

River Heights Lodge and Prairie North Health Region extend deepest appreciation to the RHL Auxiliary members and supporters for their outstanding contributions on behalf of RHL residents and staff.
