About Long-Term Care Services
A Long-Term Care home is designed for people who require the availability of 24-hour nursing care, high levels of personal care, and a setting that can accommodate varying health needs and supervision. Care is provided by qualified staff and supervised by Registered Nursing staff.
Amenities include a large bright dining room, library, bowling alley, café, chapel, hair salon, auditorium, and courtyard garden. Many activities are planned to contribute to the health and well-being of our residents, and a Pastoral Care Program meets their spiritual needs.

There are forty private care rooms at the St. Catharines site. Funding is provided by the MOHLTC (Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care). Each care room contains a large bathroom. A resident may furnish his/her care room by bringing treasured items from home or taking the opportunity to decorate it with new items to make it unique and a reflection of the person living in it. NIGGV is not a secure facility.
The monthly accommodation rates are in effect from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. Accommodation rates are set by the MOHLTC (Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care). A rate increase has not been implemented in 2021 due to COVID-19.
