More seniors will soon be able to live at Enfield Manor as part of a $1.5-million renovation that includes increased accessibility, four new units and the installation of a new elevator.
MLA Margaret Miller made the announcement today, Aug.
11, at Enfield Manor, on behalf of Community Services Minister Joanne Bernard, who is responsible for Housing Nova Scotia.
“The residents have told us they want to stay in their home as they age but they worry that the current building is not accessible enough,” said Ms. Miller. “The government has listened to those concerns and is investing in a new elevator, improved accessibility and four new units to help make Enfield Manor a more comfortable place to live for the residents and their families.”
The addition of four new units will help move more senior couples off the waitlist and into a comfortable home.
The building will also get a new $250-thousand sprinkler system as part of the $5-million Canada-Nova Scotia Social Housing investment announced last week by Ms. Bernard.
“This investment will help create a more accessible environment where our seniors can choose to stay in their own homes longer. It’s the right thing to do,” said Ms. Miller.
