Care and Services

Under the RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES ACT – 2006 – S.O. 2006 – C.17., Harrowood is defined as a residential care home. As a residential care home, we provide care services, meals and accommodation to our residents & supervised medication delivery by a nurse. At all times of the day we have a minimum of two care staff on the floor. Harrowood is unique that there is a nurse always on or on call- A nurse is available from 6:30 am to 10:30pm-then  two trained personaI support workers on during the midnight shift. Our Care Coordinator Nurse is always on call. In addition to care services, one of the main reasons individuals choose to live in a residential care home is for their personal safety.

“I don’t believe I have met such friendly and polite people in a retirement home. From the moment we walked into the facility to have a tour for our mom, my sisters and I all felt very welcome and comfortable. You can just feel the warmth when you enter the centre.”

The St.Pierre Family

“The best thing about Harrowood is the night staff. They tuck you in and say goodnight. It makes you feel at home.”
