The Elliott becomes Guelph's long-term care home

Press release.

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has approved the City of Guelph’s request to transfer its municipal long-term care home responsibility from Wellington Terrace in Centre Wellington, to the Elliott Long-Term Care Home in Guelph.

The transfer will not change the number of long-term beds in Guelph, or how to access them, but could reduce Guelph’s long-term care costs by up to $50,000 a year. Local tax dollars will be directed to support long-term care services at The Elliott as of February 1, 2015.

This arrangement will be seamless for current Elliott residents and their families; it will strengthen the relationship between the City and The Elliot, and help Guelph provide a healthy and safe community where people of all ages enjoy the best possible quality of life.
