Long-Term Care

We recognize that the decision to enter a long-term care facility is a difficult one to make – whether you're making the decision for yourself or on behalf of someone you love.
 
Our promise to you is that St. Joseph's is committed to making the transition as easy as possible – from our beautiful environment to our individualized approach to care. Our staff and volunteers work hard to maintain as home-like an atmosphere as possible for our 144 long-term care residents.
 
Our compassionate, caring service includes 24-hour registered nursing coverage supported by our fully-qualified registered practical nurses, as well as certified personal service workers.
 
If you'd like to learn more about how you, or someone you know, can access our long-term care, please contact your family physician or the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (WWLHIN) Home and Community Care.
 
Our residents, most of whom are seniors, benefit from our supportive residential environment. Programs that restore or maintain social and physical functioning add enormously to the excellent standard of care that we work hard to provide.
