Ministry seeks public input on H.J. McFarland Memorial Home development

The Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC) has launched a public consultation related to the development of a new H.J. McFarland Memorial Home.

In June 2019, Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith and Dr. Merilee Fullerton, the Minister of Long-Term Care, announced the allocation of 76 new long-term care beds to be added to the 84 existing currently in operation at the 45-year-old municipally-operated nursing home. The expanded 160-bed home is to remain at the same location in Picton.

Prior to moving on to the next phase of the redevelopment project, the MLTC will consider input from the public.

Comments or opinions may be submitted in writing by Nov. 9, 2020 by:

Include H.J. McFarland Memorial Home and quote Project #21-009 on all written submissions.

As part of the MLTC’s review, the director is to consider all written submissions before making a final decision relating to the proposal.

A new and expanded H.J. McFarland Memorial Home will anchor the County’s “Age in Place” campus, which aims to foster a full continuum of housing and care for seniors over time, without having to move. When complete, the new home will include specialized services for behavioural, dialysis, dementia and patients recovering from an illness or injury.

The new home is to be built on four acres of County-owned land adjacent to the existing long-term care home. The current H.J. McFarland Memorial Home will remain in operation while the new building is under construction. Residents will be transferred when the new home opens, minimizing disruption to their care and their lives.
