Extended Care Unit

Share This Page

Niagara Health operates a 75-bed long-term care facility called the Extended Care Unit (ECU), along with a 40-bed Interim Long Term Care Unit. The interim unit opened in December 2005 and is adjacent to the ECU. Both units are located at the Welland Site.

The ECU is legislated under the Long Term Care Homes Act and is a member of the Ontario Association of Non-profit Homes and Services for Seniors. Programs and services provided include nursing and medical care, recreation and restorative care, pharmaceutical care, dental care, foot care, spiritual and religious programs and volunteer programs. An active Residents’ Council meets monthly to make decisions related to program and environmental issues as they apply to their Home. Laundry services, cable TV, hairdressing and barber services are also available to residents.
