A Swing for a Wheelchair

Over the summer, a portion of the parking lot at the Loomis House Nursing Center was repurposed into a small park, complete with a wheelchair-accessible swing.  The swing was a gift to Loomis House from WhisperGLIDE, of Hugo Minnesota, and the landscaping around the swing was donated by Chicopee landscaping company, Mountain View Landscapes.  The swing provides another informal gathering place for residents and families.  “Most people identify with gentle swinging as relaxing, interactive and enjoyable,” shared Lori Todd, Loomis House Administrator.  The Loomis House residents and staff sincerely appreciate the donation of the swing, landscaping materials, and labor to etch a lovely park area onto the busy Loomis House campus.
