PWL Lac La Biche nears completion

April 25th, 2018

Within the next several days, construction will wrap up at Points West Living Lac La Biche. Over the next few weeks, the building will be made ready to welcome a fresh crop of Employee Care Partners when their two-week orientation begins on May 22. The first residents will begin arriving in early June. 

Beehive of activity

PWL Lac La Biche is a beehive of activity these days. Over the next week, painters are putting the final coats of paint on resident suites and common rooms; mechanical services are installing and testing heating and air systems; plumbers are installing fixtures; doors are being installed; vinyl and ceramic tiles, and carpet is being installed on the main floor, the fire alarm system is being tested, and the telephone system is being installed. And, where work has been completed, as it has on much of the second floor, cleaning is underway.

Hiring and preparing

Jea Sandahan is a PWL Manager of Operations and Nutritional Wellness, and alongside PWL Lac La Biche General Manager Debbie Menard, she has been busy hiring food service staff, Health Care Aides and LPNs. They are also preparing to set up the building’s interior once the construction and finishing crews have completed their work. They will be on hand to accept deliveries of furniture, and ensure everything is set up in its proper place.

Debbie, who has a background in Human Resources, is ensuring the final Employee Care Partner positions are filled and preparing for staff orientation which gets underway in the third week of May.

Independent and Supported Living suites

PWL Lac La Biche has 9 independent living suites and 40 Designated Supported Living (SL3, SL3-D, SL4, and SL4-D) suites, a hair salon, exercise room, and ample parking, as well as outdoor patios and walkways. More information is available on the PWL Lac La Biche FAQ webpage.
