Musquodoboit Valley receiving more long-term care rooms

By Caitlin Snow Nov 30, 2023 | 6:14 PM

A new expanded long-term care home is coming to Musquodoboit Valley.

The Musquodobout Valley Home for Special Care (Braeside) will be replaced with a new 48-room facility, providing care for an additional 19 seniors.  It’s expected to open in 2032.

The announcement was made Thursday by Tom Talgart, MLA for Colchester North, on behalf of Barbara Adams, Minister of Seniors and Long-Term care.

“Most Nova Scotians want to live and age in their own homes as long as possible. But if or when the need for more care and support arises, Nova Scotians and their families can have the peace of mind knowing that state-of-the-art nursing homes, staffed with the highest levels of care, will be available to them in our communities,” said Mr. Taggart.

All new living spaces will be single rooms with their own washroom.

The new home is part of the recent addition of 2,200 rooms to the province’s long-term care infrastructure plan.

This plan expansion includes new long-term care homes that will add about 800 rooms to the long-term care system and the replacement of older homes with new, modern facilities that will have about 1,400 rooms.
