South Shore Nursing Homes To Receive Upgrades

Four South Shore communities are among the list where the New Democrats say nursing home care will be improved in the next few years. On the election campaign trail today, Premier Darrell Dexter says 61 long term care beds will be replaced at the Mahone Nursing Home in Mahone Bay, 90 at Shoreham Village in Chester, 66 at Roseway Manor in Shelburne and 29 at Hillsview Acres in Queens County. The premier explains how the changes will come about.

The premier says his government has opened 1,000 long-term care beds in the last 4 years and will open 1,100 more if re-elected. 16-million dollars has been committed in the 2014-15 budget for the replacements.
