Caring for People
Shannex Nursing Homes provide clients with a new way of living in their communities. Our philosophy of service is founded on the principle of client-directed care. Clients are able to choose how they would like to live their lives, which is reflected in individualized care and service.
In our newly constructed and renovated homes, we provide innovative and quality service while maintaining a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere where clients can feel at home. In each Shannex Nursing Home smaller neighbourhoods or households are established and include a living and dining room, a kitchen servery and a nursing station, creating a more comfortable, home-like atmosphere for our clients. Clients also enjoy their own personal space, living in generously sized, wheelchair accessible rooms, each with a private restroom.
Every Shannex Nursing Home offers nursing, medical, nutrition and pharmacy services. Amenities such as daily recreation programs, an on-site wellness centre for occupational and physiotherapy services, a hair salon, and a spiritual centre are available for everyone Special gatherings and socializing are made easy with well-appointed rooms and comfortable furniture throughout each facility.
