Altoona (WQOW) – An adult living facility in Altoona has found a new way to bring a smile to its residents’ faces.

Grace Lutheran Communities – River Pines Interim CEO Randy Bestul used grant funding to buy a trishaw for the residents to enjoy.

A trishaw is a tricycle and a rickshaw combined.

The model even has a motor to assist with inclines.

“I had a wonderful bike ride,” said resident Mary Dominski. “I was very impressed by it’s comfort and the vision is great from all sides and up into the sky. I thought it would be tunnel vision but it wasn’t, it’s really great.”

The purchase is part of Grace Lutheran’s celebration of National Nursing Home Week. It is operated by volunteers.

To volunteer, contact Grace Lutheran Communities corporate office at 715-832-3003 or their Facebook page
