Bon Appetit
The objective of our Food Services department is to offer great tasting, pleasant and safe meals that cater to all of our residents and that remind them, as much as possible, of the meals they would have had at home. There are 3 meals and 2 snacks per day offered. The three main meals of the day are served in the dining area of each unit, which creates a warm atmosphere and also allows residents to socialize during mealtimes. This system allows us to offer our residents a more personalized service, which better meets their individual needs (preferences, texture, portion sizes, etc.). The meals served at the nursing home are based on regional dietary habits and also take into account our residents’ preferences and requests. The menus are visible in each section of the home for the residents and families.


Dietary Department


Clinical nutrition services are offered to all residents to meet their nutritional requirements. All nutritional interventions meet long-term care dietary standards and are supervised by a registered dietitian.

While following Canada’s Food Guide, the 3 week menu cycle takes into account and the preferences of the resident, food allergies and intolerances, therapeutic diet requirements and the presence of dysphagia. The menu is also modified on special holidays, during the Shediac Festival and according to the seasonal availability of food.

A nutritional evaluation is done soon after the admission and regular follow ups are done to ensure that nutritional needs are met. The dietitian works in collaboration with the doctor, the nurse and other team members and aim for optimal nutrition care. Diet changes are discussed with the resident, family members, the doctors and other employees who are involved in the care. The dietitian also works in collaboration with the food service manager in menu planning.



Recreation services

The Recreation Services’ staff and volunteers, under the supervision of the Recreation Services Manager, organize a variety of leisure activities for all residents to maintain a good quality of life. A monthly activities program is available in the Craft Room. Family members and friends are encouraged to participate in these activities with the resident. A weekly activities program is also posted in the main entrance of the nursing home.


Pastoral care

A chaplain’s services are available to our residents whom also have access to a chapel on site to meet their spiritual needs. Mass is celebrated there once a week. Furthermore, a video camera is set up in the Shediac church and its signal is fed to the Villa Providence to allow residents access to the parish’s religious activities through their own TV or those set up in the lounges. Another video camera is set up in the home’s chapel to allow residents to watch Mass on television from their bedrooms.

Warning

The Villa is closed to all visitors as a prevention to the Covid-19

October 21st, 2020

To all our dear family members:

We know you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and the impact it could have on us at Villa Providence Shediac Inc. Our top priority is to make sure residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment.

To date, there are no positive Covid-19 results in our nursing home and we are working to keep it that way.  We are closed to all visitors until further notice from Public Health. We will not be able to open, even if the province returns to a yellow zone, until we receive the instructions to follow from public health.

We always encourage you to come and see your loved one through their bedroom window, but you should communicate by phone only. No communication should be made through the open window, in order to limit the risks.  The doors of the parks will be open Monday through Friday between 10-4PM to allow you to get to the bedroom window and possibly on the weekend as well.

We will keep you abreast of recommendations from the provincial government as they may continue to evolve. Our nursing home is in close contact with the local public health department and also follows its advice.

Sincerely,The Villa Providence Shediac Inc team

 

 

Testimonials

I want to start by saying that the care and concern for each resident was IMPECCABLE each day of our four day visit in May.  Not only were the care givers as tender toward each resident, but also the same way to my wife and I as visitors.  Everyone was so welcoming to us that it made our visit so much more enjoyable.
