Family Centered Long Term Care

At Pinehaven Nursing Home, professional nursing staff are available 24 hours a day, enabling us to provide comprehensive long term care services – dementia care, palliative services and more. Quality of life is further enhanced by a range of extra services and an excellent recreational program.

A consulting dietician provides information and to our Nutrition Manager.

Physiotherapy services are available on site.

Regardless of age or health condition, residents are encouraged to strive for an improved sense of well-being and enhanced good health. For many people, this includes finding a satisfying balance of mind body and spirit to fit their circumstances. A restorative walking program, excercise activities, physiotherepy services and nursing services help maintain abilities related to physical health.

Social activities, laughter, pet visits and multi faith worship services promote intellectual, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Programs

An exciting Activities Program is a cornerstone of quality of life care at Pinehaven Nursing Home. The Recreation Department at Pinehaven consists of our very energetic and seemingly tireless Program Manager, Evelyn Janes, who is ably assisted by 6 qualified and enthusiastic Recreationists as well as a Restorative Aide. This dynamic team ensures that there is always something to look forward to at Pinehaven. Each month’s program includes Special Events as well as a busy daily schedule of activities for residents wishing to participate. Residents are encouraged, but never forced to be involved. A quick glance at a monthly Program Calendar, (available from the Recreation Office), reveals a very wide variety of activities. From Bible Study and Church Services, to Pub Night, Sundae Sundays, Horticulture, Ceramic Painting and Tai Chi, the Program is designed to meet the needs of every resident.

The monthly calendar lists an average of 8 to 9 programs per day, so boredom is not an issue. The majority of these activities take place in the facility, but field trips such as trips to the Mall, restaurants, places of special interest, local community events and even an annual overnight camping trip in the summer, allow our residents to continue to enjoy life in the larger community. For our residents living with dementia, programs are more individualized and focus on sensory stimulation. We’re thrilled to announce that we have recently added a “Snoozelen” Room experience for these special residents.

We are very proud of our Recreation Department and commend them for the excellent work they do in providing activities which enrich the lives of our residents.
