Construction is underway on an expansion of the personal care home in Carman.
The new 110-bed PCH is expected to open in 2021 and will include two phases. The first phase will be an 80-bed facility that will accommodate residents with general dementia or other special needs.
During the second phase, the existing personal care home will be renovated to add 30 beds and modernize support space.
The new facility, called Boyne Care, will help create a sense of community among residents, with a design that clusters 10 to 12 rooms with private washrooms and showers, according to the province.
The final cost of the project is subject to the tendering process, but the province is providing a portion of the capital funding. The remaining costs will be shared by Boyne Care Holdings, represented by elected officials from the Town of Carman and surrounding municipalities of Dufferin, Thompson, Roland and Grey.
