Success through collective capacity.

We are the collective voice for people living and working in nursing homes in Nova Scotia. Raising awareness through one unified voice, the NHNSA plays a significant role in driving transformational change and investment for long term care in this province.

What is Long Term Care?

Long-term care facilities licensed and funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness provide services for people who need ongoing care; either on a long-term basis (permanent placement) or short-term basis (respite care).

There are two types of long-term care facilities available, nursing homes and residential care facilities.

Nursing Homes are important options for people who have difficulty performing everyday tasks such as, dressing, bathing and toileting. Nursing home placement is appropriate for people who are medically stable but have nursing needs that cannot be met through home care.
