At Collinwood, our goal is to provide services with a personal touch to assist residents with maintaining their highest level of functionality. Each resident is treated with dignity and respect, just as if they were our own parents.
24-Hour Assistance by Trained Staff
Our staff members are provided with CBRF First Aid and Fire Safety training and we have a Registered Nurse on staff. Family members will find the staff ready to assist everyone concerned in the adjustment to group home living.
Each resident is provided with private or semi-private bedrooms. We provide three home-cooked meals from a menu created by a Registered Dietician and snacks which meet daily nutritional requirements. COLLINWOOD also provides daily laundry and housekeeping services.
COLLINWOOD monitors any health changes and has ongoing communication between staff and the resident's physician to maintain and ensure "quality care."
Medications and/or treatments are ordered by the resident's physician. Storage of the medications is in a secure place. Medications are distributed to the resident for self-administration as prescribed. A daily record is kept on each resident.
Leisure and Socializing
Leisure and social activites are organized to meet the needs of all our residents. We welcome volunteers.
COLLINWOOD'S Respite Care Program offers everything in our regular service plan on a "temporary basis" (as space allows). It can be used for a weekend, a week or up to a month, for someone recuperating from a hospital stay, a temporary illness or if the regular caregiver needs "time off."
