Ninety-four residents at Pioneer Village in Regina are going to be moved because of mould.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority says those affected will be moved to another location at Pioneer Village, other long-term care facilities and available spaces in the community.
Debbie Sinnett with the Saskatchewan Health Authority said those residents will be cared for.
“Each family member and resident will be met with individually and will talk about their care needs and their options,” said Sinnett. “This is all to ensure that they’re needs are met,” she added.
New admissions are not being taken at this time and the authority says it is working with the provincial health ministry on the future of long-term care services in Regina, and specifically what is provided at Pioneer Village.
This could include continued maintenance at the facility, building a new one or providing long-term care options through community-based partnerships or looking at new ways of providing services within other long-term care facilities.
