Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The UtKbndge Herald VOL LXVII 155 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1974 10 Cents 32 Pages Chat in the shade left to right, June Tagg, Canadian Mental Health Association official, Peter Lougheed, Health Minister Neil Crawford (facing camera with leqs Raymond Home director Alice Birt, local CMHA president LeRoy McKenzie, and Tim Held, home psychiatric social worker Raymond Home improvements promised I I 1 By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer More recreation and work therapy for patients at the Raymond Home was guaranteed Thursday by provincial Health Minister Neil Crawford Mr Crawford said in a Herald interview patients will be assessed for the type of work experience that would be beneficial This would include a training program for patients who could possibly work in the community at a certain job This type of approach to therapy would not include work in the kitchen laundry or garden for most patients he said 'Since we recognize certain occupations don t mean working in the kitchen or laundry for everyone we are interested in things such as clerking in a store this type of thing "With a careful assessment we can find a direction in which a person will grow and help them proceed in that direction he said Mr Crawford and Premier Peter Lougheed both indicated at an earlier news conference that both physical renovations and new programs are being examined for the home It will not be phased out of the mental health system although the government is taking a community-based approach to mental health sen ices There will always be patients that require custodial care Mr Lougheed said Mr Crawford said in the future the home can be used for more than just elderly women patients as is now the case "If the system of therapy begins to work we will be looking at all age groups that have similar needs he said Mr Lougheed said the home is useful and is providing excellent care 'it is excellent for the purpose But he admitted there are some problems for the pat'ents such as not being able to look out the windows without standing or having trouble walking up the stairs of the three-storev structure Despite modifications that have been made there are problems but major renovations are being looked at he said Mr Crawford said Even changing the dormitory stvle into four-bed rooms would be an irrmrovement He added the "home is beautifully situated surrounded by beautiful grounds a flower garden and now has its own canteen The town itself in the future could also be a major factor in the success of an occupational therapv program for patients in the home The businesses in the town could participate in the program bv allowing patients to be trained in their shops In principle using the town is verv desirable and depends on the potential of emplovers in Raymond to accept the people It depends on both the availabilitv of businesses and the availability of emplovees Mr Crawford Egyptians to get U.S. nuclear aid JIDDA, Saudi Arabia (AP) President Nixon announced today a program of United States aid to Egypt for the development of nuclear power for
