What was the CLOSE TO HOME Campaign all about?
Back in 2017, the Administrator/CEO of the Mennonite Nursing Home, Joan Lemauviel, said, “We are very excited to be announcing our “Close to Home” Capital Campaign for our Personal Care Home and Chapel. A long time has passed since the planning process began and now we are able to offer a care solution for residents falling into the gap between Pineview Manor (assisted living) which is not enough assistance, and the Mennonite Nursing Home (long term care) which is more assistance than required. The Personal Care Home will be “just right.” Many times staff have been called to emergencies in Pineview Manor to help a resident who is struggling with a health concern or has fallen–often being a resident that could benefit living in a Personal Care Home.
This Personal Care Home, licensed by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, will be providing the following services: 24-hour caregiving, assisting with personal care, administering medications, serving meals, and having meaningful activities. This home will welcome people moving from Country Gardens, Pineview Manor, Prairie Meadow Place in Rosthern, and the surrounding communities.
