Thanks to donor support we recently purchased a Portable Language Translator. It is great! Lo, one of our Recreation Therapist displays the new device which can translate up to 60 languages.
But we need more.
We live in a wonderfully rich community of individuals from many origins and Yaletown House is no exception to this diversity. To support our community, we need to purchase 6 more devices.
With the COVID-19 restrictions in long term care homes, and pandemic precautions for visitors entering, including family, the urgency for translating devices has been brought to the forefront this past year.
Communication is a two-way tool. We need to ensure seniors are understood and understand regardless of language barriers.
You can help us by donating online to our Portable Language Translation Campaign:
