FM_FundingOntario is investing in long-term care homes to improve the quality of care and comfort of residents.Today, Associate Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dipika Damerla visited Brampton’s Holland Christian Homes, Faith Manor Nursing Home, where 120 resident spaces will be upgraded. This is one of more than 300 long-term care homes that will be upgraded over the next nine years and are eligible to receive a construction funding subsidy.Through these enhancements, residents will benefit from:

  • An environment that is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and as home-like as possible with renewed interior design.
  • Additional space for specialized programs like rehab and physiotherapy.
  • More spacious rooms with a maximum of two residents per bedroom.
  • Greater wheelchair access in bedrooms, bathrooms, showers and doorways.
  • More air-conditioned areas.
  • Accessible dining areas that provide a home-like atmosphere.
  • More private work spaces for staff.

Long-term care homes are places where adults can live and receive help with daily activities and access to 24-hour nursing and personal care. They provide more nursing and personal care here than a retirement home or supportive housing. Ontario is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history — about $160 billion over 12 years, which is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals. In 2015, the province announced support for more than 325 projects that will keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life.

“Long-term care homes like Faith Manor are not just facilities – they are peoples’ homes. It is vital that they remain up-to-date to provide residents with secure, safe and comfortable surroundings. The redevelopment of long-term care homes will also help create jobs in the Brampton area.”

Dipika Damerla, Associate Minister of Health and Long-Term Care

We are grateful and excited to be the recipient of the Home Renewal program by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to build a new Faith Manor as a “Best in Class” facility. Our nursing home will be a place where our seniors can live with dignity and respect in a safe Christian environment staffed and supported by caring people.

Keith Ambtman, President – Holland Christian Homes Inc.

“Our seniors deserve the enhanced programs and resources that come with better facilities and this announcement brings us one step closer to this goal. We look forward to continuing to work with the government on improvements to the program so we can modernize as many homes as possible as soon as possible.”
