The Osgoode Care Centre is a 100-bed non-profit, charitable long term care home, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We are home to 99 permanent residents with one short stay bed.
The Care Centre was built by the generosity of the residents of the Township of Osgoode in order to fulfill a tremendous need in the community for their seniors. Now part of the City of Ottawa and the larger Champlain Health Region, we continue to be a first choice of home for those living in the area.
All admissions to the Osgoode Care Centre are coordinated through the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. To gain more information on eligibility criteria and the application process, please go to the Champlain LIHN’s Getting Long Term Care in Ontario or call 613-745-5525 or to learn more about Long Term Care, go to Ontario Long Term Care Association.
The Osgoode Care Centre has basic, semi-private and private rooms furnished with a single bed (all new beds and mattresses as of September 2018), night stand and wardrobe. Residents are welcome to bring in items which will help to make their room comfortable and familiar. Cable and telephone service are available at an extra monthly cost.
At mealtimes, residents are welcome to choose from 2 choices on the menu. All food is prepared here on site with fresh ingredients. A nourishment cart tours the home three times a day bringing tea, coffee, juices, fruit and snacks – a tuck shop is also available to purchase those “occasional “ treats! Special diets and diet restrictions are always accommodated.
Optimal health and well-being are first and foremost the focus of our care. Our team consists of physicians, nursing staff, recreation therapy staff, dietician, nutrition and food service staff, housekeeping, laundry and maintenance staff. Physiotherapy programs and services are provided 5 days per week. Other health services provided in-house include dentistry, x-ray, occupational therapy and other health care services as required. Comfort services include hairdresser/barber and advanced foot care – these services are provided at an extra cost. Pastoral care services are provided to meet a resident’s spiritual and religious needs. Resident laundry is done on-site and all clothing is labeled on site.
Families and friends are welcome to visit any time, any day. Residents are able to have 48 hours a week of leave plus 21 days vacation per year. If hospitalization is ever required, their bed will be secure for 45 days for medical reasons and 60 days for mental health reasons.
Volunteers are an important resource to the home – they bring with them a wealth of skills, experiences as well as friendship and compassion to our residents. Learn more HERE.
