Camanio Care continues to expand on the Canadian market
Camanio Care has sold the BikeAround jDome to the non-profit organization Canterbury Foundation in Edmonton as well as to the charitable organization Ocean View Continuing Care Centre in Nova Scotia, Canada. The two deals have a combined value of approximately 300,000 SEK.
Canada is a potentially growing market for Camanio Care’s reminiscence tool BikeAround jDome. More and more care home facilities are showing interest in the tool and that interest is now starting to translate into business deals.
– The BikeAround experience bike is an amazing tool for individuals with ailments affecting the memory. It has shown great results for quality of life and calming especially those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It is making memories come to life and has been successfully used in social contexts as well, creating experiences for entire communities at the care homes. We are happy that the interest for it is increasing, as this will bring joy to even more people, says Jasmine Dahlberg, head of operations at Camanio Care Inc.
The Canterbury Foundation is a non-profit organization that has provided quality senior care, housing and supportive services for over 44 years. With three living options; independent, supportive, and memory care, The Canterbury Foundation continually aims to provide the ’Promise of Home’ to seniors in Edmonton. This is clearly demonstrated through their initiative to take in such an innovative tool as the BikeAround jDome, to not only boost their senior care overall but especially provide a boost for their memory care program. The Canterbury Foundation is the first establishment to take in the BikeAround in West Canada.
Ocean View Continuing Care Centre is a charitable organization that has been operating since the early 1960’s. Between in-care living and community supports, Ocean View serves over 500 individuals each year through 320+ staff and 100+ volunteers. Their vision is to be the “community of choice” for Nova Scotians needing support in a place they call home. Innovation is one of the core values of Ocean View, something that clearly shows through their purchase of the BikeAround jDome. Ocean View is hoping to add a more innovative and exciting tool to their memory care program.
– The collaboration with these excellent care homes means that we can bring joy to more people and we get the chance to prove to even more care professionals what the BikeAround can do for the people in their care. We believe that the BikeAround is a tool that deserves to be brought to more people and we are confident that the Canadians are now ready to take the tool to their hearts, says Jasmine Dahlberg, head of operations at Camanio Care Inc.
