Seniors Care Improved At Iroquois Falls Home
McGuinty Government Supports South Centennial Manor Upgrades
Ontario is improving the quality of life for residents at South Centennial Manor in Iroquois Falls with the installation of new heating and ventilation systems.
The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) is providing an additional $500,000 for heating, ventilation and air conditioning upgrades to ensure the centre meets provincial standards. In 2007, the NOHFC announced an investment of $1 million for the project.
- South Centennial Manor is a 69-bed long-term care home administered by Anson General Hospital. It opened in 1967 and has a staff of 63 people.
- The 2006 census indicated the proportion of individuals over the age of 65 in Northeastern Ontario, currently at 16.3 per cent, is already higher than the provincial average, and would increase by 39 per cent by 2016.
“By funding these important renovations, we are contributing to making life more enjoyable for residents.”
“Our support of long-term care homes in the North is improving the quality of health care across the region and helping our seniors enjoy richer lives in their communities.”
