Becoming a Resident

The decision to enter long term care can be overwhelming and stressful for everyone involved. We will do whatever we can to make the process of entering Saint Vincent’s as comfortable as possible.

Access to continuing care services including home care, residential care and long term care is managed by the placement office with the Nova Scotia Health Authority. If you are considering care for you or a loved one, call 1-800-225-7225 to discuss available options. Or, visit the Nova Scotia Health Authority website for additional information.

Once you are assessed for entry into a nursing home, you will be asked to provide your top choices of homes. It is important to visit potential homes and ask questions about the care and services. Tours are scheduled in advance, by contacting the Resident Services Manager, Kathleen MacDonald. Should you wish to tour the facility or have questions on our services, the Resident Services Manager can be reached at 902-429-0550 extension 113.
