The protective care bungalows opened in the town of Bonavista in 2014.
The residence provides specialized care and accommodations for individuals with moderate to advanced dementia, supported by specially trained staff, utilizing best practices and is specifically designed to positively impact the quality of life for residents.
The facilities provide a home-like atmosphere with private rooms, open shared social spaces and access to safe outdoor areas as well as an onsite residential style kitchen, dining facilities, lounge and recreation areas.
The focus of care is on quality of life rather than rehabilitative care, and aims to provide normal living experiences along with 24-hour supervision.
Admission to long-term care is coordinated through the office of placement services for long-term care.
