We are very pleased to share our recent success with our Manitoba Health Standards Visit. Manitoba Health has 26 Standards that all personal care homes must adhere to. Every 2 years all personal care homes receive a visit where Manitoba Health and a representative from the Health Region ensures there is evidence that these standards are being met. These standards are to ensure the home provides safe Resident centered care. Click the link below to see how we did!
