Keswick, Ont. to accommodate nearly 200 new long-term care beds

Keswick-

Keswick, Ont. gets 192 new long-term care beds, in a recent announcement made by the provincial government.

The beds will be inside a new building being constructed by RYKKA Care Centers.

Its construction is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 33,000 long-term care beds across Ontario by 2028 while upgrading another 28,000.

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to expand our long-term care services in the Georgina area and to undertake the development of a new modern home in Keswick,” said Bill Dillane, President of Responsive Group Inc.

“We look forward to serving seniors and the community at large in the years to come. »

There are 4,716 new long-term care beds and 1,407 upgraded beds in development, under construction or completed in York and Simcoe counties.

“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care, and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care.

“When this home is complete, it will be a place where local seniors can call home, close to family and friends.”

Ontario’s plan to improve long-term care in the province is based on three pillars: staffing and care, accountability, enforcement and transparency, and building modern, safe and comfortable homes for seniors.
