Accessibility should be at the core of dementia care.

At the Reliable Living Centre in Toronto, visitors take a tour of a new wave of barrier-free products and services that assist with accessibility.

A walk through the centre shows visitors beautifully designed, decorated and fully appointed rooms and spaces. It starts with the experience of accessing the second floor either by traditional stairs, an incline platform lift, a vertical platform lift or a LULA Glass elevator.

Huffington Post said: “Bathing can be difficult when mobility is very limited. The RLC offers showers that have beautiful glass doors that are sectioned into six partitions. This makes it easier to lean in and help clients bath without having to get physically into the shower with them.”

The centre also houses a training facility to educate building trades people, health care professionals, and the public about accessibility standards.

The Reliable Living Centre is walking distance from all the major Toronto hospitals, including Toronto Western, Mount Sinai, Princess Margaret, Sick Children’s, Woman’s College, Saint Michael’s and Toronto Rehab.
