Twenty-six new long term beds are coming to Revera’s The Village Seniors Community in Hanover.
After working with the Ministry of Long Term Care and Health for the last year and a half, Revera has received the Ministry’s blessing on the project.
Revera Senior Vice President Wendy Gilmour says the 26 new beds along with the current 70 beds in place will allow Revera to build a new, modern long term care home in Hanover.
She says they will develop a purpose built 96 bed home that will meet the needs of future generations of local seniors.
Gilmour adds that by modernizing to the newest design standards they will be able to create the right environment to meet the increasingly complex needs of residents, many of whom are living with multiple chronic conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
The 26 new beds also comes with the promise of new jobs.
Hanover’s The Village Seniors Community license was up for renewal in 2020.
No word yet when the shovel will hit the ground as officials say the project is still in the very early stages.
The next step is the planning phase and this could take some time.
This is one of two expansion projects in the works right now for Revera which owns 53 long term care homes in and 61 retirement residences in Ontario.
Revera also received approval for 50 new long term beds for Elmwood Place a seniors home in London.
Minister of Health and Long Term Care Eric Hoskins is very pleased with the Hanover expansion project.
He says by adding 26 new long term beds to the redevelopment of the Village Seniors Community in Hanover, the Province is helping more seniors access the care they need in their community, close to family and friends.
