May 31, 2023: Residents and Family Update: Whitehills Long Term Care Centre
As part of our commitment to the residents, families, staff, and community of Hammonds Plains, we are providing the below update on the situation at our Whitehills facility.
Over the past day, based on the advice and direction of the Nova Scotia Emergency Measures Organization (EMO), Nova Scotia Department of Seniors and Long-Term Care, local authorities, and the Fire Marshal, we successfully completed the relocation of all the residents of Whitehills to our Melville campus located in Halifax. All residents have been safely moved into their temporary accommodation and are adjusting well to their new surroundings.
On behalf of residents, staff, and their families, we would like to express our profound appreciation to the many critical people and organizations involved in this complex and important relocation.
We understand that times like this are extremely stressful for families and residents and we are committed to keeping everyone informed on our next steps as we work in collaboration with authorities and emergency responders in the days ahead.
Staff and residents have evacuation plans for various potential emergency situations such as this at each of GEM’s facilities. These plans are practiced with the staff management, and when applicable, the Fire Marshal. Our ability to implement these plans is evaluated as part of out yearly licensing review.
Families seeking additional information are asked to contact our Melville campus directly at 902-477-3313
