A long-term care residence in Trenton is one of 300 nursing homes across Ontario that will be renovated thanks to funding from the province.
On Tuesday, Northumberland Quinte West MPP Lou Rinaldi announced Crown Ridge Place will receive an investment to help begin a $3 million renovation where 59 resident spaces will be redeveloped to include spacious rooms and bathrooms, better accessibility, more air conditioning and private work spaces for staff.
CEO and owner Greg Freeman said the 600,000 square foot renovation will be done in phases with construction set to begin at the end of August.
While it’s still unclear how much the government will be kicking in until the project is finished, Rinaldi said this will create a very positive environment going forward for all residents.
The funding comes from the government’s commitment to invest about $160 billion over 12 years in public infrastructure such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals.
