Additional Long-Term Care Spaces Coming to Shelburne

Shelburne, NS

More seniors in Shelburne and surrounding communities who need long-term care will have access with the addition of 48 rooms to the new Roseway Manor.

The new, modern nursing home, which will replace the current Roseway Manor and is expected to open in 2027, will now have 112 rooms. Shelburne MLA Nolan Young announced the expansion on behalf of Seniors and Long-Term Care Minister Barbara Adams today, November 21, at Roseway Manor.

“Our seniors deserve to enjoy comfortable surroundings while in care,” said Mr. Young. “Adding more rooms to the new Roseway Manor is good news for our community. This not only means more access to long-term care for our residents, but keeping our loved ones in the community and out of hospital beds translates into better healthcare for everyone in our area.”

The additional rooms for Roseway are among the 2,200 new and replacement rooms recently added to the Province’s long-term care infrastructure plan. These rooms are expected to be ready by 2032 and are on top of about 3,500 new and replacement rooms that were in the original plan and expected to be ready by 2027. Together, these new spaces will help to meet the care needs of the province’s aging population.

All new living spaces will be single rooms, each with its own private washroom. The government is contracting with several long-term care providers for new facilities and to replace existing ones.

More announcements about locations of new and replacement rooms are expected in the coming weeks. Information and progress updates on all 5,700 rooms are available at:

Building and improving more long-term care rooms is part of Action for Health, the Province’s strategic plan to improve healthcare. Building and renovating new facilities with single-bed rooms and ensuring seniors live with dignity and can age well are also commitments in the Seniors and Long-Term Care Minister’s mandate.
