Continuum of Care Philosophy
Mill Creek Care Centre is located in the middle of Tollendale Village, a comprehensive Christian Retirement Community. The Village consists of a complete range of senior's accommodation. There are 264 independent apartments, 20 semi-detached Garden Homes and now a brand new 160 bed long term care facility.
The philosophy of the founders and operators of Tollendale Village is that the Village will be a community where residents will have access to a complete range of care (i.e. a Continuum of Care) from independent living, through assisted living, and finally full extended care.
This is being achieved by allowing the independent living residents to access a smorgasbord of available assisted living services (dining, nursing, physiotherapy, chaplaincy, recreational, etc), without having to relocate to another facility. Mill Creek Care Centre is the final component of this Continuum of Care providing the full extended care services for that small percentage of Tollendale residents that may require more care.
Although Mill Creek Care Centre is located within the Tollendale Village Community, all applications for admittance to the Care Centre must still be processed through the local CCAC who will make the decisions as to which applicant will be admitted to Mill Creek. Tollendale Village residents can increase their chances of being admitted to Mill Creek by listing Mill Creek as their preferred choice.
