A Traditional Neighbourhood
Sprucedale Care Centre is a 96-bed Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care licensed home.
Our home is designed to function as an internal community and traditional neighbourhood. From the moment you enter our home, you will notice and feel the warmth and home-like atmosphere.
From our village square in the main entrance, our home is divided equally into 3 secure home areas: Cedar Grove, Maple Gardens, and Hickory Heights.
Each home area features rooms of similar size and layout, its own dining room, spa and shower room, activity room, lounge and enclosed outdoor courtyard.
All resident rooms and amenities are located on the ground floor for added accessibility and convenience for our residents.
We're very proud to say that our home has earned a 4-year Accreditation Award from the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation, the highest achievement possible.
The Amenities of Home
Our home features 18 standard, 3 semi-private, 54 private rooms.
All of our rooms are tastefully decorated with a bed, wardrobe, bedside table, and a chair to provide our residents with all the necessities. Each room has a window for natural sunlight and fresh air, as well as heated hardwood laminate floors for comfort.
Personal furniture and other items may be brought in from home, but may be limited for safety reasons. Families are asked to speak with our Director of Care regarding personal furniture and items to ensure they will be safe and appropriate for the space.
We have 3 types of Accommodations:
|Our Standard or Basic room consists of two beds and a shared washroom to accommodate two residents.|
IDEAL FOR COUPLES!
|Our Semi-private room or Couple's Suite is a unique room with a partial wall dividing it in half and a shared washroom. This provides the option of accommodating two residents each with their own private space on either side of the wall, or accommodating a couple by placing the beds on one side and a living space on the other side.|
|Our Private room consists of one bed and a washroom, and accommodates one resident. This spacious room provides the resident with the privacy they deserve.|
