GEM Health Care Group
GEM Health Care Group is a Nova Scotian, family run business which has been progressively enhancing the lives of seniors in the communities where they operate since 1979. The first facility acquired by GEM was a combination of 3 Victorian homes where the design, which included many stairs, was not practical for seniors and hampered the ability to deliver effective care. These homes were replaced with the construction of the present Gables Lodge, which was GEM's first step in providing an enhanced service to their seniors. Since then, GEM has acquired and constructed facilities throughout the province and have continued to remain leaders in transforming how health care is delivered to seniors in Nova Scotia. GEM currently operates various levels of seniors' care facilities throughout Nova Scotia, Ontario, and in Hollywood, Florida.
The mission of all GEM staff is simple. Always do your best to accommodate the needs of our clients and ensure the highest level of care is delivered whenever it is possible. Families and friends are encouraged to visit often and participate when they can, and we always have interesting and stimulating activities, both physical and mental to ensure our clients remain involved and enthused as often as possible.
GEM's Independent Living facilities enable clients to live alone in a beautiful suite, but always has staff on duty in case of emergency. Light cleaning of your room, a four course dinner, and a stimulating activity program keep our clients engaged and ensure they're as active as they prefer. GEM has independent living options available in Halifax (Melville Heights) and Amherst (Centennial Villa).
GEM offers licensed residential care options to those who wish to maintain as much of their independence as possible, but may require supervision or assistance in performing their daily activities of living. Activity programs focus on the wants and abilities of the clients so they can participate in the activities which interest them. GEM's residential care options are available in Halifax (Melville Gardens) and Amherst (Centennial Villa).
