Where We Began
The SDA Church sponsors many healthcare institutions globally. In the early 1970’s following the Church’s establishment of an acute care centre in Toronto, provincial and city officials were approached about establishing a Seventh-day Adventist health care facility in the City of Winnipeg. We are a non-profit care home operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which considers the principles of its health message an important part of their faith. One of the better-known health care practitioners was Dr. J Harvey Kellogg, the inventor of Corn Flakes, and who popularized and patented peanut butter.
In 1973, West Park Manor opened the doors to its ‘brand new open concept’ facility and began serving the communities of Tuxedo and Charleswood. We have a good number of long-term employees made up of many staff from diverse cultures and faith groups in the community who know the residents and their families personally.
These dedicated staff member follow West Park Manor’s mission: “to provide holistic long-term CARE In a Christ-like manner”.
West Park Manor has approximately 230 staff with addition support of volunteers, many of whom are residents of Tuxedo and Charleswood. Our volunteers serve our residents in a variety of ways. A Meals on Wheels program serves the community 25 meals per day, 5 days a week. Our Closed unit is set up to help manage care for wandering dementia resident needs, however, it lacks the capacity to manage challenging and aggressive or reactive behavior resident, who would be better served in a smaller capacity unit regionally.
West Park Manor Personal Care Home is a neighbor to ‘The Wellington’ (316 Grant Ave) and the Manitoba Eastern Star Chalet (525 Cathcart St), both seniors’ retirement housing centers. Several apartment blocks also share West Park Manor as a neighbor in the area. The Seventh-Day Adventist Church provides spiritual care program support to residents who may wish to attend their services at different times.
West Park Manor owns adjacent vacant land for future development consideration to improve our provision of services to the well deserving senior resident of this community. Our Board of Directors reviews the strategic plan every five years to ensure planning and alignment for future goals.
