STATEMENT FROM CARESSANT CARE WOODSTOCK NURSING HOME
For Immediate Release – January 26, 2017

Thank you for your inquiry.
I can confirm that as the result of intense inspections over the last 90 days by the
Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), our home has been issued orders to
improve certain practices. In addition, a temporary halt in new admissions enables us to
focus on addressing the Ministry’s concerns on an urgent basis.
We continue to work closely with MOHLTC, and are making extra efforts to meet or
exceed Ministry standards. In addition to immediate changes being made by our staff,
we have retained an independent, external consultant with expertise in these areas.
We are confident that these actions enable us to better provide for the physical, social
and spiritual needs of our residents.
Caressant Care owns and operates 15 Long Term Care Homes across Ontario. No other
homes are affected.
