Q?

Do you allow smoking in your home?

A.

Sprucedale allows smoking but its only outdoors.  Resident’s are first assessed to determine if they are safe to smoke independently. We offer 3 smoke times per day.

Yes. However, please keep in mind that we are limited to what can be brought in. We suggest a TV and stand or a small dresser and chair. Sprucedale strives to ensure that there is enough room, for our residents and staff providing care, to be comfortable.
