To provide an optimal level of care, programming, and service, based on individual identified needs, to the residents residing in Gateway Haven
Residents First…Every day…Every way!
As providers of care for the residents of Gateway Haven, we have accepted the responsibility to support a high quality of life by encouraging self-determination, independence, pride, and dignity in the lives of our clients.
Our commitment to excellence ensures the maximum utilization of available resources to provide an optimal lifestyle and continuum of care.
Gateway Haven is a Long Term Care Home that is owned by the Corporation of the County of Bruce. As a municipal home, it is operated as a Not for Profit business and we are part of the Long Term Care Homes Department within the Corporation. We work with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, the South Western Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN) and are obligated to provide care according to standards that are outlined within “The Long Term Care Homes Act, 2007”.
We strive to provide the necessary levels of care, which allow residents to maintain their dignity and respect, and to help them meet their spiritual, physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs regardless of age, race, or religion.
The current building was built in 2003 and has many wonderful features that contribute to the health and well being of our residents. The unique “C” shaped building allows each resident to have a view from their room whether it is a view of our beautiful park, surrounding neighbourhood or a picturesque view of Georgian Bay.
Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO)
The Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (BPSO®) designation was launched as a key knowledge translation strategy in 2003 by the Registered Nurses Association Ontario (RNAO). It is targeted to support the uptake and sustainability of best practice guidelines (BPG) to optimise individual, organisational and health system outcomes. BPSOs have been established across Ontario and throughout the world in all sectors. BPSO designation is an opportunity for health service and academic organizations to formally partner with RNAO or a Host organisation over four years to achieve designation. The goal is to create evidence-based practice cultures by systematically implementing and evaluating multiple RNAO clinical BPGs.
Gateway Haven was designated as a BPSO in June 2022 and continues implementing evidence-based practices.
