"A long-term care home is primarily the home of its residents and is to be operated so that it is a place where they may live with dignity and in security, safety and comfort and have their physical, psychological, social, spiritual and cultural needs adequately met." LTC Home Act 2007, c. 8,s.1.
At Golden Dawn, this fundamental principle is at the core of all we do and is considered in every decision making process. We acknowledge the rights of our residents to be cared for in a respectful and compassionate way, free from abuse and neglect.
In addition, we understand that each resident's quality of life depends on an approach that combines input from residents and family members, as well as, a team of care givers. Golden Dawn strives to ensure that care is resident focused. We encourage the input of both you and your family members to help us design a care plan that fits your needs.
