AdvantAge Ontario is pleased to congratulate The Grove Arnprior and District Nursing Home on the announcement today that it has been approved to receive 36 additional long term care beds to support the home’s redevelopment.

Premier Kathleen Wynne was in Arnprior to make the announcement and took the opportunity to speak with residents and staff about the redevelopment, which includes the building of a new 96-bed home and converting the current space into affordable housing for seniors. These projects, together with community services such as adult day programs, will provide a much-needed campus of care where local seniors can access the supports they need.

“Seniors campuses are a model that our Association has been advocating strongly for as they have tremendous potential to improve care outcomes, service quality and system responsiveness,” said Bob Morton, Interim CEO of AdvantAge Ontario. “They are directly in line with the spirit and intent of the Patients First Act in that they support and encourage sector partners to work together at the local level to ensure that the right services are in the right place.
