Seniors in Port Hawkesbury are getting access to new, modern, long-term care rooms.

The Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home is going to be replaced with a new 96-room facility that will provide care to an additional 42 seniors.

All new living spaces will be single rooms each with its own private washroom.

Allan MacMaster, Minister of Finance and Treasury Board and MLA for Inverness, on behalf of Seniors and Long-Term Care Minister Barbara Adams, made the announcement at the home Friday, December 1.

“You can tell a lot about a society’s values by how they treat their most vulnerable citizens,” said Minister MacMaster. “These new state-of-the-art long-term care facilities will provide homes where Nova Scotians who have spent their lives growing our province can spend their last years living with dignity and respect.”

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

The facility is expected to be ready by 2032.
