About The Grove

The Grove is a 96-bed nursing home that opened its brand-new, expanded building in fall 2021. The design of the Grove is modern, resident-first, and supports the team’s dedication to providing safe, skilled and compassionate long-term care. Special design considerations were made to enhance dementia care, better facilitate infection prevention and control precautions, and accommodate the person-centred care model. The Grove is laid out into three Resident Home Areas (i.e. neighbourhoods) – each includes a dedicated living room, dining room, activity room, home kitchen, bedrooms, and access to a secure courtyard with walking paths, seating, and gardens.

The Grove believes in a holistic approach to resident care that provides for the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual needs of each resident through the efforts of a multidisciplinary team.

Long-term care is a provincially funded and regulated health care service that exists as part of the province’s publicly funded health care delivery system. Access to a long-term care home is based on assessed health care need, not ability to pay. There is a resident co-payment, but government subsidizes this cost for those residents who need the care but cannot afford to pay.

The Home and Community Care branch of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) determines who is eligible to be placed in a long-term care home, manages wait lists and coordinates placement.
