AdaptaCare provides our seniors with specialized nursing and personal care in a unique, small-scale assisted living facility. The "needs levels" of our residents range from the almost independent to palliative care requirements (specifically designated SL3, SL4). It is expected that residents moving into our facility will not, except for exceptional medical and highly specialized nursing care requirements, be subjected to another change of location. The 50 bed-capacity home provides large and spacious private bedrooms with washrooms, common relaxation areas, dining areas and kitchen facilities. We have a total of 20 rooms on the 1st floor and another 30 rooms on the second floor. Staffed by LPNs and HCAs, working 24/7 shifts, the facility provides for a blend of privacy and opportunities for socialization in a relaxed family atmosphere.
