Van Conversion Company Donates Vehicle to Good Shepherd Home - Bethlehem7/31/2012
Thanks to the donation of a wheelchair accessible van from VCI Mobility, Norristown, PA, residents at the Good Shepherd Home – Bethlehem will be able to participate in more outings and activities off-site.
“We’re very grateful for the donated van,” says Jennifer Szakacs-Strohl, CTRS, recreational therapist. “We were in need of an additional vehicle to allow our residents to be safely transported to appointments and recreational outings through our Community Access Program. The program is a great opportunity that allows them to attend sporting events and concerts, dine out at restaurants, travel with their family members and more.”
VCI Mobility converted a Dodge Ram 2500 van into an ADA-compliant vehicle with a rear loading wheelchair lift and space to accommodate two wheelchairs.
The Good Shepherd Home – Bethlehem is a long-term care facility for people with severe neurological and physical disabilities. The facility has received a 5 star rating from U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2012.
