Welcome to Salem Home

People come here to live.

Salem Home LobbyFrom the moment you walk through the doors at Salem Home, it’s clear that this is a special place. The lighting is warm, the chairs in the lobby are cozy, and on many days, the smell of freshly baked cookies fills the air.

Our faith drives everything we do, and that makes all the difference.

We do everything we can to make our residents feel at home, from replacing harsh fluorescents with warm lighting to arranging our facility so it resembles neighbourhoods and streets.

We provide 'relationship-centred care.' This means we put our residents and their lives first. Everywhere you look, there are signs of life, activity and all the comforts of home.

Seeing is believing, and the best way to get to know us is to stop by for a visit. In the mean time, please click below to see more of Salem Home. We hope we can give you a small glimpse of who we are and how we live.


 

A Personal Care Home With a Difference

At Salem Home, we do everything possible to create the most comfortable, compassionate, healthy and respectful living environment for our residents.

From discontinuing the use of the overhead intercom system to our cookie baking volunteers to our beautiful gardens, Salem Home is certainly a personal care home with a difference.

Our commitment is to provide Christ-centred care, embracing the values of compassion, dignity, excellence and faith. Using these values as a foundation, we have adopted the model of ‘Relationship-Centred Care’  where the staff are encouraged to develop deeper relationships with the residents in order to understand their needs.  Regardless of where a person is in their life's journey, relationships are a vital part of a positive and healthy life.

With the support of our board of directors, staff, the community, our volunteers, and generous donors, Salem Home continues to be one of the most forward-thinking, innovative personal care homes in the region.
