Waters Edge Care Community will be renamed Northern Heights Care Community when the residence is rebuilt.
The new name was proposed by Waters Edge resident Renee Everingham.
“I enjoy being part of this community, and I am thrilled that the name chosen was put forward by a resident – it is such an honour,” said Renee.
“For me, North Bay is a hub of the north, and the word heights represent the stage of life for most of us here – like seniors, we have lived to reach the highest stage.”
As a token of appreciation for Renee’s name submission, a donation has been made to HOPE’s Kitchen, a community organization that she chose to support.
Nicknamed the “Gateway of the North,” the City of North Bay is famous for the beautiful lakes that surround it, which are also major waterways in northern Ontario. This new care community will reside along the heights of the escarpment, offering a beautiful view of Lake Nipissing.
Last month, Sienna Senior Living and the Ontario Government held a ground-breaking event at the future site of the redeveloped Waters Edge Care Community on the site of the former St. Joseph’s General Hospital.
A new, modern long-term care home will be built to replace Waters Edge, providing seniors with all the comforts, programs and services they need to age with dignity.
“Waters Edge has been part of the community for 40 plus years, and we have a tight-knit family of residents and team members,” said Denis Filiatrault, Waters Edge’s Executive Director.
“We look forward to a new, modern home at Northern Heights where we will continue to serve and care for North Bay’s seniors for many more years to come.”
The leadership team at Waters Edge is looking forward to working closely with all levels of government on this exciting redevelopment project and is grateful for the support of local leaders.
