ADULT DAY PROGRAM
The Saskatoon Health Region offers an Adult Day Program at the Mennonite Nursing Home.
This program is designed to provide socialization, leisure opportunities and a variety of services that make it easier for participants to remain in the community. The focus of the program is on supporting primary caregivers, alleviating loneliness and isolation and promoting a healthy, active lifestyle for participants. The program is offered Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. While at the Home participants will receive a hot meal and an afternoon lunch. They are also encouraged to perhaps renew old acquaintances, participate in recreational activities, community outings, and pastoral care. Bathing and foot care are also available.
This service is open to residents of Rosthern and area. Up to five participants per day and must be 19 years of age or older; the person must be ambulatory or able to transfer with minimal assistance from a wheelchair.

The Mennonite Nursing Home has one room available for respite care. This service is provided as a short-term stay for residents whose caregivers need respite from caring for a loved one. The respite room can be booked for stays as short as two weeks to a maximum of 60 days. The person entering respite must have a home to return to. The respite room is booked on a first-come first-served basis and can be done through the Director of Care (306-232-4861).
Our volunteers make special events possible. The spiritual lives of our residents are strengthened by the ongoing Sunday morning services that are provided by individuals or groups of individuals from local and surrounding area churches. Volunteers are also needed to provide one on one companionship, visiting, or reading to the residents and assist with other social activities. If some of these opportunities appeal to you, or if you have skills/talents that could enrich the lives of our residents please contact our office or recreational department. (Read more information about Volunteers under the “Departments” tab on this site).
The Mennonite Nursing Home has a registered charitable donations fund used for the purchase of special equipment designed to improve the lives of the residents. Donations for this ongoing fund are always welcome.
