Residents and Visitors

Resident Information

St. Joseph's Manor provides different levels of care based on the particular needs of the individual. All rooms are private or semi­private with ensuite washrooms.

Residents may be moved to another room within St. Joseph's Manor. The priorities used to determine room changes are:

  1. Safety considerations,
  2. Resident care needs,
  3. Ability to pay for preferred accommodation, and
  4. Resident preference.

Requests for room changes are recorded by the Administration staff and can be made at any time following admission. When a bed is available, the needs of Manor residents on this internal waiting list are satisfied prior to the bed being offered to the community for admission. The Director of Care approves all resident room transfers.

Other features at St. Joseph's Manor include: air conditioning, chapel, alarms on exit doors, animals on­site, common television room, physiotherapy and activity rooms, wheelchair access to outside courtyard/covered balcony, and spacious shower/bathing rooms­ equipped to handle any mobility concern.

We always welcome suggestions. There are comment forms by each servery for comments regarding nutrition related concerns. Feel free to drop any comments at Administrator/ DOC office mailbox.

Annually residents and their families have an opportunity to evaluate the services at St. Joseph's Manor by completing a satisfaction survey.

If your questions or concerns have not been addressed to your satisfaction by your care provider(s), please discuss discuss them with the Charge Registered Nurse.
