Long Term Care

Special Features

The Long Term Care section of the facility, funded by the Ministry of Health Long Term Care Division, provides 24 hour nursing care to 166 residents under the regulations and guidelines set out for us by the Ministry of Health.

The Wexford has six units with varying levels of care to accommodate the specific needs of each resident. The units range from lighter care for our most independent residents, to heavy care for those residents with the most advanced physical and cognitive care needs. Two secure units provide care to the residents in our population with cognitive impairments who require safe, secure environments. Each unit has between 25 and 30 residents, with it's own compliment of nursing staff.

Our Nursing Department staff includes Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses, and Personal Support Workers, all of whom work as a team to provide the highest quality of care. There are two Physicians available in the facility three days of the week. Additional therapeutic services provided include physiotherapy, podiatry, dental services, lab and x-ray services, and monthly visits from a psycho-geriatrician.

Our Clinical Dietician creates our menus in conjunction with a resident food advisory committee and monitors the nutritional requirements of each of our residents. In addition to regular meals, nourishments are provided to all residents three times daily to ensure dietary requirements are fulfilled. Special diets and textures are available for those clients with special needs.

The social needs of our residents are met through activity programming by Life Enrichment Therapists. Activities vary widely, from one-to-one time spent with residents to facility wide events attended by the majority of our residents. The facility also has numerous social areas available to the residents, including a daily coffee kiosk, our outdoor patio and pond, interdenominational chapel, library, tea room, and gift shop.
