Because of their need for long-term round-the-clock services, for most of our residents, the Four Homes of Mercy has become their home. In addition to their neurological disabilities, many have significant cognitive, learning and emotional impairments. Only a very few of our residents can walk; the rest must utilize wheelchairs.
At the Homes, we place great importance on creating opportunities for social and recreational activity. We recognize that quality of life depends on more than good physical health alone. Our caring for our residents' practical, everyday needs gives them the opportunity to enjoy other interests and pursuits.
Each resident has an individually designed care and activity program. A multi-disciplinary team of staff, together with the resident's family, friends and volunteers, if possible, implement the program. As each individual's needs evolve, the program changes to accommodate the needs.
Respite Care Our respite care program enables families to have the opportunity for a rest from the challenges of constantly caring for a severely impaired family member, while knowing their loved one is receiving excellent care.
The Living Arrangements We have capacity for 85 beds. Our residents share rooms which provides them with company and stimulation. We try to place residents of similar ages and interests together. Most of our rooms have easy access to the outside varandas or pathways to the gardens.
