Northwood was created in 1962 as a way to provide help to seniors that were living in poverty. For some, it is a place to live but we also provide at-home solutions to help people age well in the community. Northwood has locations in Halifax and Bedford and provides homecare throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality and to some parts of Hants County. We have over 1,500 staff, 600 volunteers and over 5,000 clients at our locations and throughout the province.

Tell us why you got your flu shot!
"I have personally been getting my annual flu shot for a number of years- following having the flu which impacted my whole family at the same time. Prior to that, I had had bad colds that I thought were the flu but they were not. When I actually had the flu, I understood the difference between a bad cold and a flu. My asthmatic daughter had a very difficult time.
My commitment to getting the flu shot has been strengthened given what we have just been through. During COVID-19, we had a staggering reminder of how our personal choices impact those that we serve. COVID-19 was introduced in to our facility and it had a devastating impact on a vulnerable population.
I will continue to do what ever it takes to do my part to prevent the flu from being introduced to our vulnerable clients and my coworkers."
