We understand the decision to transition to long-term care is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. We want to ensure your decision is a positive one. Below are some of our home’s points of difference:
The calendar is always full. You can be as active as you like.
For some people, the key to living better is filling every day with meaningful activities that bring people together, build bonds and create shared experiences.
Whether it’s tapping the power of music to engage a resident with dementia, attending worship services, participating in exercise classes, or reminiscing with a friendly volunteer, there’s always something going on at Extendicare Moose Jaw. Check “News & Events”
Here, residents lead active and engaged lives.
This is home. Your home.
We want you to feel at home. We’ll support you in becoming an active and engaged member of your new community and enjoy life to the best of your ability.
We have a welcoming and inclusive environment.
Not only do we work very hard to integrate residents into our community and feel at home, we’re also committed to making families feel at home here too. The following are some of the measures we take to help our residents settle in and also help family members feel comfortable and get involved:
Monthly Newsletter: We produce a monthly newsletter to family and residents to keep them informed.
Welcome Meal: We provide a complimentary meal to a family member on Admission Day so they can stay close to the loved one throughout a very difficult day.
Guest Meal Service: Family members or visitors are welcome to join residents for a meal. There is a nominal charge for guest meals.
Family Support Group and Resident Council: We tell family members and new residents about our Family Support Group and Resident Council and invite them to participate as a way to get more involved in our home.
Family Suppers: We host a yearly event for families and residents.
Memorial Service: We invite family members to join us at our Memorial Service when we celebrate residents and loved ones who have passed away.
Personalize Your Room: Residents are encouraged to bring some personal items and furnishings from home to make their rooms feel more familiar and comfortable.
Feedback: We encourage residents and family members that we want them to tell us everything about our home that they are unhappy about – from the food to the temperature in their room – and we will make our best effort to make it right.
Family Participation: Family members are encouraged and welcomed to participate in activities with their loved one.
Resident Care Plan: Family members, along with their loved one, participate actively in all aspects of the development of the Resident’s Care Plan.
Open Door Policy: We have an Open Door policy so that if a family member or resident wants to talk, we’re here to listen.
Compassionate Care Room: We have a Compassionate Care Room where family members can have privacy with their loved one in the end stage of life and stay overnight if they wish.
Resident Advocate: We have a Resident Advocate who actively participates in the Resident Council meeting and acts as a liaison to the Family Support Group.
We connect you to the community.
Maintaining strong connections to others is essential to keeping people active and involved.
Getting you out into the community and bringing the community into our home is important to your quality of life. Here are some of the ways in which the residents and staff get involved with the community, and how the community connects with us:
Resident Outings: We have regular outings for residents, weather permitting.
Student Placement Opportunities: We provide placement opportunities for students: high school programs, Continuing Care Assistant program
Bake Sale and Tea: We host an annual Bake Sale and Tea that is well supported by the community.
Remembrance Day Ceremony: Every year, a Remembrance Day Service is held; with veterans from the local legion in attendance.
