Long Term Care

Nithview Community’s Long Term Care (LTC) Home overlooks the Nith River and its beautiful, natural settings.  Many visitors comment that our friendly staff and welcoming environment create a home like atmosphere that is unique in LTC homes.

Nithview provides long-term care to 97 residents. Both private rooms and semi-private accommodations are available. There are numerous common living spaces and a bright dining room overlooking the river.  Residents benefit from a variety of recreational and spiritual programs, along with a full calendar of social and recreational activities such as: puzzles, card and board games, exercise group, musical concerts, individual visiting, chapel services, and tea room café.

Three home-cooked, nutritious meals, as well as snacks, are served each day.  Meals are prepared on site and menus are well rounded to meet the nutritional needs of residents.  Foot care, physiotherapy, dental hygiene, audiology and hairdressing services are also available.  Other conveniences include daily tea room, library, banking services, outdoor sitting areas, and off-site excursions in our accessible bus.

Each resident home area meets or exceeds Ministry of Health Long Term Care standards, with respect to the amount of dining, activity and lounge space.  Residents feel very secure with our controlled access and around the clock professional nursing staff. 

Please note the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) must be contacted for admission to LTC.  For more information about the CCAC please call 519-748-2222 or visit their website at www.healthcareathome.ca

 


 

Retirement Assisted Living

Nithview Homes provides accommodations and care for persons whose day to day life requires some form of personal assistance.  Some people may enjoy the freedom from having to prepare meals on a daily basis or the responsibility of having to maintain the cleanliness of their household surroundings and laundry.  Others may benefit from the security of having certified Personal Support Workers available 24 hours per day that are able to monitor each resident’s well being and help address any emergencies that may arise.  Additionally, being in a setting that offers social interaction through recreational, educational and spiritual programs is one that is life giving and nurturing.  We believe that this alternative for care is a choice that can meet the needs of many while fostering their independence and preserving their dignity and privacy.

Independent Living –  Seniors Village

Nithview Community believes in providing comfortable homes where seniors can experience life and receive the support they require.  When choosing to live in a Seniors’ Village apartment, one can look forward to enjoying conversation with their neighbours or relaxing in serene garden settings.  If desired, apartment residents may choose to garden in the flower beds and take part in the social/recreational programs at Nithview Community. 

The Village consists of one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments contained in a seven building complex.  Accommodations are a mixture of rental and *Life Lease apartments.  Each apartment includes heat, hydro and water, as well as free laundry facilities located in each building.  All apartments provide a full size fridge, stove, storage room and access to a private outdoor living area.  Lawn care, outdoor maintenance and snow removal are provided by on-site staff.  Residents have the option to purchase meals from Nithview and dine in the congregate dining room. 

*Our Life Lease program is based on a ‘pre-paid’ rental model which allows residents to lock in a large portion of their housing costs for the life of their lease agreement.  This is one of the few programs that will, over time, reduce your living expenses, compared to a traditional monthly rental program.
