The Little Sisters of the Poor received a $7,000 grant from the Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation to support its Ambulatory Preservation Program.
The funding was used to purchase three Broda chairs for the nursing units and a shampoo chair and bowl package for the on-site hair salon.
The Broda chairs provide stability and comfort for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and others forms of dementia as well as those at risk for falls.
