Get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and retire in the peaceful tranquility of Caressant Care Courtland’s beautiful grounds. Surrounded by both ornamental and fruit trees, the Nursing Home provides a serene atmosphere amidst 22.5 acres of rolling meadows. The Nursing Home is located right on County Road 59, south of Highway 3 so stop by for a tour on your way to the lake or as you pass by on your way into town for groceries. As you approach our Home the view of the grounds will astound you. Admire the small lagoon edged with Snowball trees as you drive up our winding path to our Home.
Caressant Care Courtland is a single story Home with 34 bedrooms including private, semi-private and ward. Enjoy community-based entertainment programs, games and community-sponsored birthday parties in our large hard-wood floor auditorium. Participate in our annual Strawberry Social featuring live entertainment in addition to a delicious “all you can eat” strawberry dessert. Take a stroll with your family through our Memory Garden. This large patio area includes a raised wood boardwalk that stretches across the back of our building. It is completely enclosed and wheelchair accessible. An automatic door will sense your presence and welcome you into the tranquil Garden. Mature shade trees in open sections of the deck will provide a canopy over you as you stroll along listening only to the sounds of the rustling leaves and birds singing. Have a picnic with your family on the deck or in our screened in gazebo.
Our library sits on the north corner of the Home. Envision a study with bookshelves lining one of the inside walls and windows almost as large as the two exterior walls displaying a beautiful landscaped area and lagoon. It is from this observatory that you can have the privacy of your own living room to enjoy family movies using the VCR and television. If you’re still not satisfied, select an interesting magazine from our library and relax in a lounge chair in our completely enclosed courtyard. You’ll be surrounded by small bushes, perennial and annual flowers under our awning.
A wall of screen doors from the courtyard invites you into our chapel. Once inside, you will view the artwork depicting Stations of the Cross and breathtaking stained glass above the courtyard doors. We invite your Priest or Minister to provide services for you and others. Our activity staff schedule worship services as well as provide numerous programs for your enjoyment.
Keep cool in the air-conditioning in our craft room and dining room. Admire the view of our grounds as you enjoy your meals. Invite your family to bring home movies and sit together to reminisce or watch cable television in our sitting rooms.
Whichever area you enjoy the most, know that our dedicated staff will care for you and cater to your needs. Our 24 hour Registered Nursing staff will comfort you when you are in need, and our activity staff will invite you and encourage you to participate in every program. You will make new friends here, rekindle some old ones and you will become a part of our small Family here at Caressant Care Courtland.

In Long Term Care across the Province, we have many elderly that suffer from some type of dementia which leads them to elope without regard for safety and without the ability to find their way safely home. While Long Term Care Homes today have measures in place to protect this vulnerable population, it still occurs. Caressant Care Courtland is the contact for anyone in Norfolk County looking to obtain a locating bracelet that is tracked by the OPP. While this Program is a significant benefit to other individuals as well with autism; brain injuries; and, Downs Syndrome at any age who live in the Community across the County; it is an extra added safe-guard for those Residents living at Caressant Care Courtland. They enjoy living in an environment where they can go outside when they wish and do not have to live in a ‘locked unit’ on a higher floor. Our Residents who have the potential to elope, can enjoy all the same freedoms as the rest of our Family here. Administrator Michele Hough voluntarily initiated and co-ordinates the Program for the OPP. It is the only program that is used by the Ontario Provincial Police for locating those with dementia.
