Connecting with our Community
Our home is a dynamic part of our surrounding community. We provide support to seniors who are not residents and outside groups. We provide meals five days a week to the VON Support Services Meals-on-Wheels program. Our home also has relationships with area schools for inter-generational programs. Secondary school, college and university students complete a variety of clinical and training rotations each year, sharing new knowledge and learning from the experiences our staff share.
Families are an integral part in helping make the best decisions for their family member. We offer many opportunities for families to be involved. Families are encouraged to participate in resident conferences, recreation programs, mealtimes, completing resident/family satisfaction surveys and volunteer services.
North Queens Nursing Home is a medium-sized long-term home for special care facility in Caledonia, Nova Scotia. We offer 24-hour care to those who can no longer care for themselves at home. We are a not-for-profit organization under the direction of a Board of Directors. We have a 43-resident capacity, with both respite and palliative care services. North Queens Nursing Home first opened in 1938 as the Wright Nursing Home. In 1944 it became a Cottage Hospital primarily supporting maternity care.
Caring is our business. We truly believe that if we take pride in our workplace and what we do for a living it is reflected in the level of care we provide. To see out full list of programs, please click here.
