Ty Watson House Elevator Repair 2018
One of the many services that AVHS provides is Ty Watson House, a beautiful heritage home overlooking the Alberni Inlet with four resident beds for respite and end of life care.
In this setting we work alongside Island Health nursing staff to ensure individuals, loved ones and their families are compassionately cared for with a focus on dignity and quality of life.
Our society recently experienced a serious financial hardship at Ty Watson House, when the residents’ elevator broke down.
As you can imagine, this type of specialized repair for the elevator took highly skilled trades experts several weeks to complete.
Despite our comprehensive insurance policy, the elevator repair was not covered, and the entire cost was $72,000.
These costs could not have been forecast in our yearly operational budget, and we need support from our community at this time to meet our shortfall.
We could not provide these services without the generous support of our community.
Please help us continue to provide these services by supporting our elevator repair fund.

Operating without a working elevator was challenging!
We are grateful to the staff from Ambulance Services, Fire Department, Chapel of Memories, and Yates Funeral Home for helping us transport residents to and from the resident floor via the stairs while our elevator was not functioning.
