    Health Minister Chris d'Entremont and Mary Lee, President and CEO of
NSAHO, will join residents and staff at the home to launch the month-long
celebration of the continuing care sector.
    Ms. Lee will also launch an awareness campaign recognizing the difference
continuing care programs, organizations, employees and volunteers make in the
lives of Nova Scotians.
    The term, continuing care is used to describe a range of health-related
services and programs that are offered outside of the hospital setting, either
on a long-term or short-term basis. Continuing care employees work in a
variety of settings, including nursing homes, homes for the aged, home care
agencies, home support agencies, residential care facilities, adult
residential centres, regional rehabilitation centres, and community-based
options such as group homes and small option homes across the province.
