The Magnolia is located at 416 Highway #2 in Enfield. The home accommodates 71 people in total, 59 who need Level II nursing care and 12 who require the support of residential care.

The Magnolia has also adopted the Eden Philosophy. There are five cottages within the home with 12 to 15 individuals, each in a single room with a private washroom. Each cottage has its own living room, dining room, bathing suites and access to enclosed garden spaces.

Staff are dedicated to each cottage so consistency and familiarity grows. The Continuing Care Assistant has an enhanced role in providing care, recreation activities, preparing and serving meals, doing light housekeeping and laundry. This diminishes the number of people entering your home and creates stability and comfort for all residents and staff.

Upon entering The Magnolia you will be greeted by our street scape. Much like a regular street in a small community it is here you can stop to get your hair done, share a coffee with family at the Seaside Café while watching your grandchildren play or visit with friends along the streetscape or in the community centre. You can do all this while being protected from the elements and enjoy the natural light from the skylights.

The model supports those who live and work in the cottages to work, play and eat together. Here at Rosecrest, we are truly excited to see this wonderful model come to fruition.
