Tsiionkwanonhso:te Long-Term Care

What kind of services do you offer:

Tsiionkwanohnso:te is a home for the aged, licensed by the province of Ontario for individuals who require supervisory health care and who can no longer live alone. Generally these are Elders from the community who require special care when it becomes difficult for family members to care for their needs.

What do I do:

If you are an Elder and are able to make your own decisions, you can come to the facility and have a look around and decide if this place is right for you. You would then be able to sign yourself in. Please be aware that there may be a waiting list. If you are a family member who is concerned about an Elder, you might be able to admit someone as a next of kin or if you have power of attorney (able to legally decide for an individual) over them.

Where do I go:

Just come to our facility at the address above and you can have a look around and be able to ask questions. There is an application process where we determine what your needs might be, such as diet, medicines and so forth.
