DeeAnn Mercier takes you on a tour of the renovations that are ongoing at The Lighthouse Supported Living right now. Mental Health Services is providing funding for nine rooms to be renovated and then used for long term mental health beds. It will provide increased stability for the residents which saves the system a lot of money and with each resident getting their own room, it provides an increased standard of living for each resident. It’s really a program enhancement where both the individual, the system, and taxpayers benefit.
As for what is going into the room, the bathrooms are being completely gutted and replaced, a laminate flooring is going down, doorways are being widened (to allow for easier wheelchair access), and windows are being replaced. It will be quite nice.
