Northwood - Live More

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.

Work by Dr. Ardra Cole shows the power of “caring canines” at Northwood. Residents and staff saw the dogs as theirs. “Come and meet our dog, Bella,” said a staff member, welcoming first-time visitors, “She lives here.” In this facility, the dogs were an integral part of creating a home.

Stay tuned next week to learn more about Dr. Ardra Cole and this project!
