Residents moved into the New Long-Term Care Facility

Residents are settling in nicely in the new long-term care facility in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Alison Dower is the Director of Communications for Labrador-Grenfell Health.

She says the residents made the move from the Paddon Home to the new facility on Tuesday.

Dower says the move went smoothly and residents are settling in well.

The new facility houses 50 beds for the seniors.

It is connected to the hospital in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Dower says the facility has four wings.

One of those wings contains a protective care unit.

The unit will be used to house patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It contains extra security features to provide the necessary care for those patients.

Dower adds that an official opening will take place next Friday when Provincial Ministers will be in attendance to help open the facility.
