For the first time, the Wales Home Foundation launched 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 expanded its long-term care units from eighty-four to ninety-six CHSLD beds. The project meets the Government’s recommendation of thirty-two residents per unit and will allow improved operational efficiency while contributing to better care.
A three-story expansion to the Norton wing includes forty-two modern private rooms equipped with their own washroom. Each floor has been 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. Renovations were done to modernize the existing units. The estimated cost is six and a half million dollars.
The CHSLD expansion incorporates a superior building envelope with triple-glazed windows and a geo-exchange heat and cooling source that substantially reduces 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.

We would like to invite the public to participate in our 8th Annual Candlelight Evening of Memories. This event is designed to celebrate lost loved ones by donating to have a candle lit in their memory.
Year after year, the Wales Home Living Room is filled with candles to honor family and friends. The evening includes refreshments and musical entertainment. The name of each commemorated individual will be read aloud during the event.
Donations in the memory of a lost loved one are frequently made.
These types of gifts are given to commemorate a friend or family member who was a resident, or simply as a memory to someone in the community.
