Liverpool, NS, will soon be home to a new long-term care home that will add more single rooms and improve accommodations in the area.
A provincial press release on Wednesday said the new facility will have 96 beds and will replace Queens Manor and Hillsview Acres, which currently have 90 beds.
The press release goes on to say that a call for proposals will be issued for a project manager to assist with the design and construction.
“There are long waiting lists for long-term care and that is not acceptable. That’s why we act and build or renovate more than 2,500 new single rooms over three years, ”says Barbara Adams, Minister for Seniors and Long-Term Care. “This new facility in Liverpool will be one of the first of these projects. With the addition of these beds, we can provide more security for more Nova Scotians and better access to care.”
Provincial officials say the planning and design work will begin immediately once a project manager is selected.
In the new facility, all residents will have single rooms with washrooms.
