About Rainycrest Long Term Care

Welcome to Rainycrest!

We invite you to come in and take a closer look. Great care has been taken to create a home-like environment in which a resident and their families work closely together with the staff. Comfort, care, privacy, choice, the pursuit of personal interests, social interaction and participation in the outside community are all factors contributing to the quality and varied lifestyles of our residents.

At Rainycrest, we strive to maintain each person’s individuality and encourage independence through quality nursing care, life enrichment programs, balanced nutrition and social and spiritual opportunities. Residents may choose to participate in local community life by attending special events, local fairs, concerts, parades and shopping excursions. Resident rooms at Rainycrest have been thoughtfully designed for easy living. For example, every room is wheelchair accessible with bright and spacious windows. There are also both private and semi-private rooms, each with individual washrooms and closets.
