Life at our Long-term Care Homes
Our homes feel like homes should - warm, welcoming, safe, and comfortable. When you move into our home, it becomes your home. We encourage you to bring your favourite possessions along with you. Decorate your room with your family photos, a favourite chair, an heirloom quilt - with whatever that you hold dear.
Quality of life
Your quality of life is important to us. In addition to receiving high quality health and personal care, we want you to enjoy life in your home, to maintain your independence as long as possible, to participate in the activities you enjoy and to socialize with others. With homes located across Niagara, you may be able to stay in your own town or city. Maintaining your ties with your family, friends, neighbours, and community is important.
Family and friends are important
Family and friends are encouraged to continue playing an active role in your life. Visitors are always welcome. There are many opportunities for family and friends to participate in special activities such as holiday parties, summer picnics and dining experiences as well as join you in the daily activities you enjoy. We also encourage your family members and friends to become part of our valued team of volunteers or Auxiliary members.
Our homes enjoy mutually beneficial partnerships with local organizations such as service clubs and local Legion branches and educational institutions such as Brock University and Niagara College as well as with elementary and secondary schools. We participate in activities outside of the home and welcome the community into our homes.
Your rights as a resident
The Residents' Bill of Rights is a provincial document which details your rights as a resident and the responsibility of the home to respect, promote and support those rights. All residents have the right to be treated with respect and courtesy, recognizing a resident's individuality and dignity, to be free of physical or mental abuse and the right to participate in decision-making.
