Residents and their families enjoy access to our beautiful, private garden, sporting a full gazebo, surrounded by many mature trees and greenery.
Our main dining room is bright and spacious and is located adjacent to the kitchen in which all meals are prepared under the supervision of a qualified Dietitian. Choices are provided for each meal, with care given to any special dietary needs.

The home upgraded its HVAC and air conditioning system as mandated by the Government of Ontario updated regulations under the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007. The residents are enjoying a well-functioning HVAC and air conditioning which is maintained at a comfortable level for everyone inside the building.
Elm Grove provides a wide range of therapeutic activation programs that meet the emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual and social needs of each resident.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE PROGRAM
Elm Grove Living Centre has established and maintains an emergency preparedness and response program to ensure the safety of residents, staff, volunteers, and visitors in the event of an internal or external emergency. The home's manual contains all the details of the response program to any form of emergency or disaster.
The primary concern under any extraordinary circumstances is the safety and well-being of the residents and staff. Knowledge of procedures and prompt implementation is essential to provide the necessary protection for those in our care. All employees must read and be familiar with the Emergency Plan.
