Nursing Services

St. Patrick’s Home’s nursing philosophy that each resident’s independence be maximized.  Nursing staff identify individual strengths and work with each resident to enhance or maintain these strengths.  Comfort, and autonomy are balanced with safety to support independence. The nursing staff support an environment that ensures privacy, dignity and maintains personal lifestyle as much as possible.

The Home has Registered Nurses (RNs), Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) and Personal Support Workers (PSWs) twenty four hours a day.  These staff work with the resident and family and other members of the interdisciplinary team to assess, plan and deliver care designed to meet each resident’s specific needs.

Registered staff are responsible for daily functioning of each Resident Home Area and for medication and treatment administration.  The PSW provides direct personal care such as bathing, grooming, toileting, mobility assistance and assistance with meals and other activities.

Residents will be cared for by qualified care providers of both genders and from many ethnic backgrounds.
