Ontario Celebrates Opening of Long-Term Care Home in Carleton Place
Redeveloped Stoneridge Manor brings 128 modern long-term care beds to the province
November 07, 2023
CARLETON PLACE — The Ontario government, along with Axium-Extendicare, is celebrating the opening of Stoneridge Manor, a modernized, new long-term care home which is bringing 128 new and upgraded beds to the Town of Carleton Place. This is part of the Ontario government’s commitment to build more than 58,000 new and upgraded long-term care beds across the province.
“Congratulations to the Axium-Extendicare team as we celebrate the opening of a brand new long-term care home in Lanark County. Our government is fixing long-term care and ensuring we build homes for seniors in the communities they helped build,” said Stan Cho, Minister of Long-Term Care. “The opening of Stoneridge Manor means 128 residents now have a new, modern and comfortable place to call home.”
Construction of the redeveloped Stoneridge Manor began in December 2020 on a new site in Carleton Place. The new two-storey home provides 68 new and 60 upgraded long-term care beds and welcomed its first residents in spring 2023.
“In the many discussions I’ve had with seniors and families about long-term care in our communities, there’s been a resounding request for an environment that reflects the spirit of a home-town lifestyle. Stoneridge Manor is designed to provide high quality care in a safe, secure state-of-the-art home – while paying attention to the details that create a comfortable, welcoming neighbourhood,” said John Jordan, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston. “As we work together to meet the demands of our growing communities, providing our seniors with a place to call home is top priority. I applaud the steadfast efforts made at every level to bring us to this grand opening celebration at Stoneridge Manor.”
Stoneridge Manor features design improvements for residents including larger resident common areas, a place of worship, beauty salon, health club and air conditioning throughout the home. The home also contains a hospitality suite — similar to a hotel room — where a resident’s family may stay overnight when required. The home’s overall design is centred around ‘resident home areas’ that create more intimate and familiar living spaces for up to 32 residents, with dining and activity areas, lounges and bedrooms. The larger home size also helps connect residents to expanded healthcare services, including rehabilitation and restorative care, cognitive and physical programming, and dementia care.
The government is ensuring Ontario’s seniors get the quality of care and quality of life they need and deserve, both now and in the future. The plan is built on four pillars: staffing and care; quality and enforcement; building modern, safe and comfortable homes; and connecting seniors with faster, more convenient access to the services they need.
