Located in beautiful Berwick, the ‘Apple Capital’ of Nova Scotia, Grand View Manor has been taking care of residents since 1969. Grand View Manor employs over 230 staff, is home to 142 residents, and has two attached assisted living complexes. Residents, tenants, and staff enjoy a varied menu with all meals fully prepared on site. Our recreation department provides residents with the opportunity for socialization, as well as cognitive and physical stimulation daily.
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Our Philosophy of Care is resident first. At Grand View Manor we focus on creating the life that the resident and family wish to experience. All disciplines contribute to the resident care plan to ensure needs are met, and preferences accommodated whenever possible, through the provision of holistic care. Our front lobby is a uniquely vibrant hub that is truly the heart of our home. It draws residents from all of the units who warmly welcome staff and visitors alike. We proudly embrace our valley location and our long standing relationships with our neighboring schools, businesses, and community organizations.
WE’RE SO PROUD OF…
Grand View Manor is proud to be using the latest innovative technologies for resident charting, medication administration, and staff education. We partner with several local CCA program providers for training and clinical placements, and have hosted CCA training on site. We also provide practicum opportunities for LPN, RN, Dietician, Social Work and Recreation students. We have welcomed many newcomers to Canada in our Nursing department. They bring a wealth of knowledge and skills, and have been invaluable in our recruitment and retention program.
MEET SOMEONE SPECIAL
One of the things we pride ourselves on at GVM is our provision of palliative care. Our nursing staff are highly trained in comfort measures, and families have access to two private palliative care suites. The bonds formed between residents and staff are never more evident then at the time of someone’s passing. When the page goes out for an ‘Honor Guard’, staff from every single department will stop what they are doing to line the hallway and see that resident off. This is a very moving moment and families are always genuinely touched by this display of love and respect.
Written on our entrance doors is, “The best employees in the world work here “. We strive every day to uphold this statement but we could not do it without the support of our family members, designated care givers, volunteers and the community at large.
