Continuing Care

The health and happiness of our seniors is important to all Nova Scotians.

Our Continuing Care Strategy is a 10-year plan to enhance and expand our continuing-care system. It will allow Nova Scotians to remain in their own homes, and live on their own terms, for as long as possible.

We're also replacing nine long-term care facilities and building more than 1,000 new beds around the province; 800 will be ready by 2010.

Careers in Long-Term Care

Nova Scotians have a number of long-term care choices depending on the type and level of care they need. Likewise, there are just as many career opportunities for nurses, continuing-care assistants and others interested in this rapidly growing field.

Careers in Home Care

Nova Scotians of all ages have access to home care, allowing them to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. Home care is managed by the province. Nursing services are delivered by The Victorian Order of Nurses (VON), and home-care support is delivered by 20 agencies throughout the province.
