The John M. Parrott Centre is a 168 bed, (not for profit) County owned and operated, long term care facility, located on the west end of Greater Napanee.
It is a facility that provides "long term" care to residents in the community who require 24 hour nursing care and ongoing assistance with activities of daily living (i.e. dressing, feeding, grooming, medical attention and care, etc.). Long-term care is often sought when all other means of community and family support have been exhausted. In other words, the care that is required is beyond that which is available from family and community service agencies.
Admission is co-ordinated through the Community Care Access Centre or, if you are in the hospital, through a Discharge Planner. Their role is to ensure that all criteria have been met before referring you to us for admission.
The waiting period varies depending on the number of people on the waiting list ahead of you, your health status, and the level/type of care you require. The Community Care Access Centre maintains the waiting list and could probably provide you with a more accurate feedback as to waiting periods.
For more information please contact the Administrative Supervisor at 316.354.3306 ext. 224 or e-mail
Once you have been offered a bed at The John M. Parrott Centre, you may wish to come in for a tour (depending on amount of time available). During your tour, we will provide you with a copy of our Guidebook and answer as many of your questions as possible. General tours can also be arranged at anytime throughout the week by calling our front office and making an appointment.Once you have accepted the bed at The John M. Parrott Centre, the staff will begin preparing for your arrival. We encourage all residents prior to admission, to appoint a Power of Attorney for both Property and Personal Care. At the time of admission, you will also be asked to complete a "Life & Times" questionnaire. The "Life & Times" questionnaire is a wonderful way for us to get to know our new resident. It provides staff with information about family members, where family are located, any closed friends, where our new resident grew up, life events, likes and dislikes, habits, special interests, hobbies, and spirituality. This information helps staff to get to know each resident, which helps to build relationships and make the "settling in" period easier.We realize that making the decision to move into long-term care can be a difficult one, but our staff is here to help with the transition. Every attempt will be made to address your concerns and make you fell as comfortable as possible.
