Today marks a pivotal moment in senior care as Tochtech, a leading healthcare technology company, joins forces with Beacon Community Services, a distinguished 50-year-old non-profit society dedicated to enhancing the lives of senior in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia.
Beacon Community Services’ investment in Toch Sleepsense, will ensure the care of residents at Brentwood House and Sluggett House is supported by the acclaimed next generation bed exit technology.
