Why Choose the Bennett Centre?

Long Term Care


Long term care facilities are also known as nursing homes or homes for the aged. They are designed for people who need 24 hour nursing service on hand and daily help with personal care. Some may also require a secure environment. Long term care homes are licensed and regulated by the provincial government.

"When touring other facilities, I found the standard at the Bennett to be far above and beyond the others. It was clean, bright and cheery."
