A new 100-bed facility will replace the current 60-bed home that serves the Morden-Winkler area.
It will feature enlarged single resident bedrooms with private washrooms and spaces for dining, daily activities, recreation and large gatherings.
It will also have a special unit to safely accommodate the needs of seniors with more complex needs such as severe dementia or behavioural management issues.
The new home will be located next to a private, assisted-living facility, creating an opportunity for a seniors’ campus with personal care home, supportive housing and private housing options.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring or summer of 2014.
