Long Term Care
Our long term care facilities are licensed and funded by the provincial government. They provide services for those who need ongoing care, either on a long term basis (permanent placement) or short term basis (respite care). There are two types of long term care facilities: nursing homes and residential care facilities.
40 Years of Experience
For more than 40 years, GEM has provided high quality level 2 nursing care to those who require assistance or supervision performing their activities of daily living.
Through a combination of model of care and facility design, GEM strives to ensure that each individual is able to live a comfortable and stress-free lifestyle; one which promotes independence in their day to day activities and how they prefer to spend their time.
GEM realizes that those who provide care on the front line, from administering medication to ensuring individual interests and concerns are attended to, are both the face and the foundation of our operations. At GEM we make it part of our business to recognize what they do and motivate them to provide a stress free living environment to the residents.
What is Long Term Care?
Long-term care facilities are licensed and funded by the Department of Health and Wellness and provide services for people who need ongoing care; either on a long-term basis (permanent placement) or short-term basis (respite care). There are two types of long-term care facilities available, nursing homes and residential care facilities.
Each of GEM’s level 2 nursing care facilities are licensed by the provincial government and all admissions are gained through their single entry system.
Neighbourhoods consist of dedicated staff who care for residents in private or semi-private rooms which have access to their own kitchen, living and dining areas, spa rooms and entertainment areas. Residents have become less dependent on mobility aides and staff are better able to form relationships with them.
