Providence Care’s long-term care program is provided at Providence Manor – a 243-bed home located in downtown Kingston. The home provides care for residents who have stable medical conditions, but require 24-hour nursing care.
The historic building, enclosed Haughian Garden, and the involvement of families and community volunteers in home activities, all contribute to enhancing the residents’ well-being and quality of life.
Through Providence Manor’s affiliation with Queen’s University, as well as affiliation agreements with St. Lawrence College and other post-secondary institutions, the Long-Term Care program offers research and learning opportunities to the next generation of health care professionals. In addition, many Providence Care medical staff hold academic positions at Queen’s University.
The 243-bed long-term care facility at Providence Manor is a charitable home. The Manor has a secure Dementia home-area, two short stay respite beds and five designated veterans’ beds. A Community Care Access Centre case manager assesses residents for eligibility for long-term care and manages admission wait lists to all long-term care homes across the South East LHIN. Providence Manor uses a Restorative Care Model in the provision of: nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, nutritional services, spiritual care and therapeutic recreation.
Basic, semi-private or private accommodation is available within the Home. Most rooms at Providence Manor are private with shared bathrooms. There are nine two-bed rooms in the Home. The average age of our residents is 83. In 2014-15, there were 95 resident admissions to Providence Manor.
Providence Manor promotes and follows a proactive Falls Prevention program, which includes a regular walking program for residents, falls risk assessments within 24-hours of admission, and referrals to physio or occupational therapy when needed. Our approach is client-centred, and we encourage a partnership between residents, families and staff to ensure a safe environment at the Home.
