Levy Long Term Care in Shalom Village Original & Gould Long Term Care in Shalom Village Too
Long Term Care Homes, once more commonly known as “nursing homes,” are licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. Shalom Village is also accredited with exemplary standing by Accreditation Canada and is an active member of the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA).
Shalom Village welcomes residents of all faiths and provides nursing and personal care on a 24-hour basis. Registered nurses lead our care team and our staff doctor guides residents’ medical care. Our specially trained team helps those with cognitive impairments get the most out of life. Complex care, including gastric tubes, oxygen and IV are all available. Convalescent care is available for those recovering from surgery or other health conditions, to help them prepare for independent living in their own homes.
What makes Shalom Village different is our unique “AT HOME” approach to care. Our goal is to help people maintain their quality of life as they move home to Shalom. We provide opportunities for them to continue to participate in activities that have personal meaning and value. We believe that everyone should be able to live in a home where they are respected, can live with dignity, and can continue to be connected to their community.
Shalom Village operates within the context of Jewish values, although residents of all faiths are welcome. Appetizing kosher meals are served in pleasant dining rooms, including snacks between meals and at bedtime. Our chefs work with a registered dietician to accommodate special dietary needs as required.
Our Community Centre offers a wide variety of social and recreational programs. Everyone is encouraged to participate in activities suited to their individual interests. All residents have access to The Club Fitness Centre, the Snoezelen, and many other innovative entertainment and therapeutic opportunities. We are able to provide accessible transportation for outings. Activities such as Samuel’s, our fine dining Kosher restaurant, our Ladies Auxiliary Tea, and the Shalom Village Annual Walk/Run are among the many events that bring the larger community to Shalom Village, helping make it a more vital place to live, work and visit.
