In response to COVID-19, there are screening requirements and some restrictions when visiting residents in long-term care homes.

Donate to residents at Wesburn Manor. Your support will purchase technology (i.e. tablets) to enable communication, virtual visits and social engagement, as well as other initiatives, which enhance the quality of life for long-term care residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wesburn Manor provides individualized care to each of its 192 residents within a safe and friendly environment. Guided by the CARE values – Compassion | Accountability | Respect | Excellence, we are committed to improving quality of life and support for healthy aging. To learn more, watch the Commitment to Care video.

Behavioural Support Programs

As recognized leaders in behavioural support programs, we have a long history of demonstrated knowledge of dementia, delirium and mental health in the delivery of care.

Staff and medical professionals are knowledgeable in the most prevalent types and related causes of behavioural issues, understand disease processes, stages and progression, diagnostic and assessment process, cognitive or neurological symptoms, treatment interventions, appropriate communication to address resident needs, strategies to promote optimal quality of life and experience of the behaviour(s) from the perspective of the resident, family members and other partners in care.

Short-stay Respite

The short-stay admission program supports families seeking respite from the caregiver role for a period of up to 60 continuous days to a maximum of 90 days per year.

Palliative and End of Life Care

We provide an environment in which end of life residents will be cared for in a manner that supports their goals and choices to minimize discomfort and promote quality of life. Overnight accommodation can be provided, upon request, to support families traveling from out of town.

Rehab and Restorative Care Program

We ensure an approach to improving and maintaining residents’ optimal level of mobility related to transfers, independence and distance.

  • Resident satisfaction is a priority and we encourage each resident to maintain or improve their capabilities, to maximize independence and quality of life
  • We believe that one of our most valuable attributes is offering peace of mind to residents and their families that care is available when needed, and that each individual’s health and well-being are at the forefront of everything we do.

Families are an integral part in helping make the best decisions for their family member. We offer many opportunities for families to be involved:

  • Resident care conferences
  • Residents’ Council
  • Family Council
  • Satisfaction surveys
  • Volunteer services
  • Volunteers are a vital community link for our residents. An active team of volunteers takes part in many activities to enhance our resident’s quality of life
  • We maintain many partnerships with the community, including regular liaison with other homes, educational institutions, hospitals, churches, police/fire services and government services
  • Community agencies and service providers visit Wesburn Manor to ensure that residents have access to services such as dental care and foot care.
