Long-term care at the Emo Health Centre is an Eldcap unit attached to an urgent care department. Our facility accommodates 12 residents with eight private rooms and two semi-private rooms. This bright and cheerful area has a homelike atmosphere. Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms to reflect their interests and tastes, with many personal furnishings and personal items allowed to be brought into the facility.
We encourage activity and social interaction through a strong weekday activation program which strives to provide quality opportunities to meet the social, multi-cultural, restorative, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual needs of the residents. Weekend activities outside the facility are also planned. Bingo, baking, exercise, music, crafts and current events activities are among those frequently experienced. Volunteers are always welcome to assist with these programs.
Outside spaces are available for the residents and include a screened gazebo and open-air pergola. Pets are welcome in the facility to visit if they are trained, immunizations are up to date and they are well behaved and leashed. The facility also has a whirlpool tub and shower room.
The Emo LTC facility always has a registered nurse on duty and a physician on call. Being attached to the urgent care unit facilitates the treatment and care of residents who may require these interventions.
