Finnish Manor is a non-profit residential care facility. The care unit (bedrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen) is all on one level. Owned and operated by Finnish Canadian Rest Home Association.
Finnish Manor supports the cultural backgrounds of our residents but specifically focuses on Finnish culture. All food is home cooked; Finnish cultural foods and baking have a prominent part in the menu. We celebrate all Canadian holidays and special focus is placed on the Finnish cultural celebrations. We speak several languages; 65% of staff also speaks Finnish.
We provide a loving home for our residents. We promote individual growth, optimum quality of life by being open to new ideas and change, and by working together with our residents and the community at large.
- 60 publicly subsidized residential care beds
- Rooms include a bed, night table and dresser, and a call bell at the bedside and in the bathroom to summon help when needed. There are privacy curtains between beds; phone and cable TV jacks are at each bedside.
- You may also bring belongings that can be accommodated safely at the bedside.
- Our activity department provides residents with Finnish videos, movies, music, books and magazines. All activities are led in Finnish and English. A full recreation and activity program is available seven days a week which takes into account our residents’ interests and hobbies. We use a minibus to take residents for outings.
- We cannot accommodate motorized scooters. Finnish Manor is completely wheelchair accessible on one level.
- We have cats for company and there is an aquarium in the living room. If a resident wants to bring in a pet, we will assess each situation individually; if the pet is found to be suitable the resident carries the cost of pet care.
- Finnish Manor is a non-smoking residence; there is a smokers’ gazebo outside for able residents to go outside to smoke safely and independently.
