To apply for admission to long term care, you must contact your local Public Health Nurse or Social Worker. The resident is assessed to determine the required level of care and the facility’s capacity to meet the anticipated needs. A tour of the facility is strongly encouraged and contact may be made by phone to setup an appointment. Admissions are limited to those individuals who require Level III and Level IV nursing care.
Service provision includes nursing care, medical services, pharmacy, nutritional and dietetic services, social work, occupational and physiotherapy, recreation therapy, beautician services, and pastoral care services.
The philosophy of care is resident-centered and designed to foster the best possible quality of life for individuals through the interdisciplinary approach using a social model of care.
