Two, nine-bed units have been created for adults with complex needs and behavioral issues in Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority has created the spaces at Actionmarguerite’s facility on Despins Street in St. Boniface, known formerly as Taché Centre.
The WRHA says the units will address a few of the recommendations proposed after the Frank Alexander inquest, evaluating access to long term care within the health region.
“With an aging population, it is more important than ever to ensure that Manitobans have the supports they need to live in dignity,” said Minister Health Minister Sharon Blady.
The two new units will open later this month at Actionmarguerite, which is a non-profit corporation serving the elderly with complex needs.
