Caressant Care Harriston is a 30 bed Retirement home located in the North end of Wellington County in a quiet rural town. It is a single storey home that is only a 10 minute walk from the downtown where shopping, banking and restaurants are easily accessed. We have a bright, inviting dining room in addition to our lounge and solarium where residents are encouraged to visit with each other after meals and during other free time. We have a puzzle table in the solarium and a crokinole board in the lounge, and both rooms have cable television. In the summer the beautiful outdoor patio provides an opportunity to take in the sun or relax in the shade under the large gazebo. Meals are prepared by our Dietary staff and prepared in the Retirement Home kitchen. A majority of meals are made right from scratch, and snacks, fresh fruit and coffee or tea are available 24 hours a day at the self-serve snack counter. Our caring staff members are available to assist with bathing, bed changes, laundry, and meal service. The Activity staff provides enjoyable activities with additional fun available in the adjacent Nursing Home lounges. The Friendly Diners Club occurs monthly giving our residents the opportunity to have family and/or friends join them for a special meal and entertainment. Residents are also encouraged to invite family and friends for a meal anytime. A nominal charge of $5 for meals applies. Local physicians visit Caressant Care Harriston Retirement Home on a regular basis. Residents who have a physician in the area are able to maintain that relationship while those new to Harriston may choose a local Doctor for their care.
The Accredited Long Term Care Residence provides 24-hour care and support under the program standards of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care with an added measure of TLC provided by qualified staff from the local area. We have a Restorative Care Program offering physical activities for those whose goal it is to maintain their physical ability.
