Philosophy of Care

Long-term care homes are an integral part of the community where people can live, work, and play. We work together to provide person and family centred care with a focus on individual abilities that nurture a sense of purpose, belonging and companionship. Each person’s unique qualities are embraced and valued; choices are recognized and respected. Together, we will foster a life rich in purpose.

The Residents’ Bill of Rights serves as the foundation for all aspects of our care and operations. Northern Health and each of our staff members are committed to protecting individuals’ rights. As a team, we recognize that every resident is entitled to individualized, quality person-centered care.
