We see each resident not as someone locked in a moment of time labeled as old, but as a timeless person who has a past and a future. We take the time to get to know each person's past in order to appreciate and respect each individual.
Well being in our nursing home:
1.Spiritual well being
We care for our residents spiritual well-being through personal conversations, physical touch and by "being present". We plan for facilitating activities catered to each individual.

2.Mental and physical well being
Is your family member losing interest in activities? Having no identifiable feelings or emotions about events? Lacking the energy to participate in life? Do these symptoms of apathy sound familiar?
Apathy can be connected with depression or other mental health disorders, or the result of physical illness, or the side effects of medication.
The best prescription for avoiding apathy and memory decline may be a familiar one — exercise. In fact exercise can actually increase brain volume.
We organise activities that provide opportunity for musical entertainment, socializing, and self-expression. We combine these with strengthening and balance exercises twice a week. We will keep varying our daily activities to curtail boredoom.
Nursing care in our nursing home:
1. Respite care and Daycare
Respite care and daycare gives both caregivers and seniors a break from the usual routine. Caregivers get some free time, to take care of other responsibilities, and much needed mental breaks.
We offer companionship to seniors, prepare their meals, provide personal care (for example, assisting with bathing, toileting, and exercising), and, for some, tend to their medical needs -- by administering medication, for example.
Every person who comes to the EEC has lived a full life.
2. Skilled nursing care
Wound dressing or dispensing and monitoring medications
Physical therapy working with a resident to rectify strength and balance issue
Occupational therapist helping a resident to become independent again, particularly when it comes to dressing, personal hygiene and eating
pharmaceutical, laboratory services
social and educational activities
end-of-life or hospice care
*Personal care focuses on helping residents with activities of daily living, such as:
maneuvering in and out of bed and/or walking
3. Dementia Care
Alzheimer's disease is a specific form of dementia. As Alzheimer's disease or dementia progresses, the level of care and assistance a person requires increases. While many families prefer to keep their loved one home for as long as possible, we understand that a person who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer's will eventually require 24-hour supervised care in catered settings.
The questions below may be helpful when determining if a move to the EEC is a good option:
Is the person with dementia becoming unsafe in their current home?
Is the health of the person with dementia or my health as a caregiver at risk?
Are the person's care needs beyond my physical abilities?
Am I becoming a stressed, irritable and impatient caregiver?
Am I neglecting work responsibilities, my family and myself?
Would the structure and social interaction at a care facility benefit the person with dementia?
