160 new long-term care beds are being created locally.
It involves phase two of The Village health and wellness facility at Canadore College, called The Villages Community Care Group.
“In collaboration with our partners, we will develop a unique environment including a long-term care home with 160 new beds, creating a multigenerational campus that leads to healthier living for all ages,” says George Burton, President of Canadore College. “Residents and the local community will have access to a range of client-centred health care options and facilities including a fully functioning pharmacy and a health care provider on site.”
“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors here in North Bay,” says Vic Fedeli, MPP for Nipissing. “When Canadore’s LTC project is completed, 160 residents will have a new place to call home, near their loved ones.”
Fedeli says there are now 292 new and 460 upgraded long-term care beds in development, under construction or completed in Nipissing, including the following projects:
160 new beds at the Villages Community Care Group
96 new beds at FAIM (Trout Creek)
24 new and 240 upgraded beds at Cassellholme
12 new and 148 upgraded beds at Northern Heights (former Waters Edge)
72 upgraded beds at the new Algonquin Nursing Home (Mattawa)
The Village at Canadore, which opened in 2018, integrates interprofessional education with Indigenous, Eastern and Western healing and wellness practices.
