MacLeod Group Health Services is pleased to be part of an exciting announcement by the Nova Scotia Government today regarding the development of a 96-bed Nursing Home in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. We are delighted that seniors in Lunenburg County will have access to a new and modern long-term care facility with the replacement of the Mahone Bay Nursing Home.
“Over the last year, we have announced almost 200 new nursing home beds across the province,” said Leo Glavine, Minister of Health and Wellness. “We are steadfast in our commitment to providing access to quality long-term care for Nova Scotians.”
The new facility will be operated by MacLeod Group Health Services Ltd, under our MacLeod Cares banner. The three-storey building has been designed with current best practices for infection control and dementia-friendly nursing care.
We are excited by the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a new nursing home to serve our community of Mahone Bay and the South Shore. The home’s design creates smaller neighbourhood-like areas that promote a close-knit community while enabling best practices for infection control and resident safety, said Ramsay Duff, chief executive officer, MacLeod Group Health Services Ltd.
Two designated care floors will each have three wings, comprised of 16 private rooms with private washrooms. Each wing will be self-contained and have its own dining, activities and dedicated staff.
The home will have a large community room on the main level with access to an outside patio, garden and community trail.
The facility, which will create 60 new full-time jobs, is expected to welcome residents in December 2022.
