The new St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre was designed as a co-location model to maximize administrative and supporting efficiencies while also providing an integrated continuum of care focused on individualism and the concept of enablement. The state of the art facility was built in two phases in order to avoid any temporary placement of residents during the construction period.
Phase I, was the construction of the 150 Long-Term Care beds. The design of Phase I included five Resident Home Areas (RHA) comprised of 30 beds. Each RHA has a dining room, activity room, living room, treatment room and personal care centres. One RHA was designated as a Dementia Unit with access to an enclosed courtyard and outdoor garden. The total area of Phase I was 116,028 square feet.
Phase II was the construction of the 59 Complex Continuing Care beds. The design of Phase II included two Complex Continuing Care Units which included a 26-bed Young Adult Unit and a 33-bed unit for adults over 65 years of age. Each care unit has a dining room, activity room, living room, quiet room and personal care centre. The Young Adult Unit was equipped with a multimedia resource centre to allow access to internet, computers, video and other media resources. The total area of Phase II was 37,825 square feet.
