Nursing Home care is defined as:

  • Care that is required by persons with medically stabilized chronic physical and/or mental illness or functional limitations who have little need for the diagnostic and therapeutic services of a hospital.

  • Care that requires professional supervision and holistic care on a 24-hour basis that cannot be provided in the community. 

  • Victoria Glen Manor provides 24-hour nursing care for all residents, with at least one Registered Nurse on duty at all times. Other nursing staff consists of our Director of Nursing,  Licensed Practical Nurses and Resident Attendants.  Victoria Glen Manor has arrangements for Physicians to visit the Manor twice a week. 

  • Victoria Glen Manor strives to make rehabilitation services available to its residents. Rehabilitation services are obtained through Extra Mural Hospital Program. Services such  as  physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and respiratory therapy are often needed  by our residents, and will be provided whenever possible.

  • Residents receive dental and optometric service as required. Both of these services are available at the Manor if the resident is unable to go to the doctor's office. 

  • Residents requiring special foot care will receive this care on a monthly basis through the staff foot care nurse.

Dietary Services
The primary responsibility of the Dietary Services at Victoria Glen Manor is to provide meals to our residents.  We also offer meals to staff and guests on a cash basis.

Careful attention is paid to special dietary requirements.  A qualified Food Services Manager oversees the operation and works closely with a registered dietician, registered nurses and food service staff. 

A registered dietician is available one day per week at the Manor.  The dietician assists the Food Services Manager in the dietary department and is responsible for assessing the nutritional needs of each resident. 

Menus are based on Canada’s Food Guide, with seasonal foods being offered as much as possible. 

Families are encouraged to have meals with the residents.  There is a nominal cast and families are asked to notify dietary department at a reasonable time in advance.


-back-

Residents may be able to have special snacks and treats, but we ask that you check with our staff prior to bringing anything in.

We believe meal times are special times and we encourage our residents to come to the dining room for their meals as much as possible.

Residents are encouraged to bring their own pictures and other articles for their rooms to make them more "homey".
