Celebrating With Our Residents: The comfort of home, in the company of friends

(January 23rd, 2017) – (Digby): Tideview Terrace Residents received a belated Christmas gift today with the arrival of a new wheelchair accessible van. Belliveau Motors, local Ford Dealership, delivered a 2016 Transit Connect XLT Wagon to a group of excited residents waiting by the front entrance. Malley Industries from Dieppe, New Brunswick partnered with Belliveau Motors to do the wheelchair conversion, resulting in a 5 passenger and one wheelchair vehicle.

Resident Judy McGarvey stated “It will be good for going to medical appointments outside of town.” Yvonne Speichts observed “You can see all around, even while seated in the back in your wheelchair.” Resident Council President Holly Manzer’s big smile said it all, ”It will be a more comfortable ride for everyone.”

“This new van replaces our 11 year old PT Cruiser. It offers our residents more flexibility in meeting their transportation needs now that we can accommodate a wheelchair”, says Administrator Debra Boudreau.

We at Malley Industries were delighted to be involved in this project.
