NURSING HOME


As part of the Ontario Health Care delivery system, Mariann Home provides long term care to residents in close cooperation with community support services.

Applications for admission are considered from residents of retirement homes, other long term care settings, hospitals, and the com-munity at large. The application for admission is processed through Community Care Access Centre, York Region.

We will admit only those residents who can benefit from the care and service provided by the Nursing Home. In addition to essential services such as nursing, medicine, dietetics, therapeutic recreation, pastoral services, we also make podiatry, optometry, dental and physiotherapy services available to residents.

Other services can be arranged through community agencies.

The Mariann Home - Putting The Resident First

MARIANN HOME is a Long Term Care facility. It is multicultural, and operated by Roman Catholic sisters. We are licensed to accommodate 64 nursing home care residents. There are 64 designated as long term care.

Mariann Home is operated by the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood as a non-profit registered charity..

Our Home is a HOME for the aged and the dependent, as it is dedicated to long term health care service. Inherent in the care of our residents is the Christian dignity, worth and individuality of each individual we serve. About the Above Logo: M and H, the beginning letters of Mariann Home, form the basic shape of the logo. However, the symbol has multiple meanings interrelated with each other. The home was originally named after Mariannhill, the first foundation of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood near Durban, South Africa. This foundation was named so by Francis Planner, our Founder, to honour both Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Anne, his grandmother. The M and H combine to form a cross - the cross that stood above Calvary Hill. Being at the centre of the logo and of Mariann Home, the cross indicates the Christian spiritual dimension permeating the Home.
