Nursing Home Week – June 3 – 9, 2012

On the occasion of Nursing Home Week, PLEIS-NB wishes to acknowledge the dedicated staff and volunteers who are working to improve the quality of care and quality of life of nursing home residents around the province.

For well over 10 years, PLEIS-NB, in collaboration with the Department of Social Development, has published a booklet entitled Going to a Nursing Home, available here on the PLEIS-NB website ( This booklet answers some questions commonly asked about entering a nursing home and applying for financial assistance. It touches on the services offered and explains in plain language how the Department processes admissions into nursing homes. The most recent edition of the booklet, published in August 2011, reflects current Department policy. If you are interested in obtaining copies of the booklet, please contact us at
