For the first time, the Wales Home Foundation will launch a multi-million dollar campaign to raise funds to finance the expansion of the Wales Home’s long term care units (CHSLD Wales Inc.).
Recognized as the oldest senior’s residence in the Province of Quebec, the Wales Home prepares to celebrate one hundred years of care and is undergoing a significant transformation for the next century.
To meet the demands of the aging English speaking community, the Wales Home will expand its long-term care units from 84 to 96 CHSLD beds.
The project will meet the Government’s recommendation of 32 residents per unit and will allow improved operational efficiency while contributing to improved care.
A three-story expansion to the Norton wing will include 42 modern private rooms equipped with their own washroom. Each floor will be furnished with a second bathing facility, expanded living and dining rooms, a nursing office, and a large solarium overlooking the valley with floor-to-ceiling windows. During construction, renovations will also be done to modernize the existing units. The estimated cost is six and a half million dollars.
The CHSLD expansion will incorporate a superior building envelope with triple-glazed windows and a geo-exchange heat and cooling source that will substantially reduce consumption of electricity and thus operating cost for energy.
The government funded CHSLD Wales Inc. offers innovative quality care for English speaking dependent seniors requiring long-term care.
