The home is located in central part of Dominion, close to churches, pharmacy, post office, coffee shop, credit union and many other amenities and is within walking distance to the Dominion Beach and Boardwalk.
Each client has their own furnished room with TV hook up and telephone service, an activity program suited to individual interests and abilities which keeps them as engaged as they want to be, and nutritious home cooked meals served under the direction of our registered dietitian.  Qualified Continuing Care Assistants /Residential Care Workers are on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days a week and are committed to seeing that each client's needs are met and their lives are enhanced as much as possible.

Mission Statement

Every person whose personal circumstances have left him or her dependent on others for survival and well-being deserves to be cared for physically, medically, emotionally, and psychologically, especially those who are in the most need.

Program Development

Because of its strong belief that a RCF setting must promote, encourage and facilitate the continued personal growth and development of each resident, Dominion Community Guest Home has developed and/or participated in the following programs:

  • Under the Director of Human Services, Dominion Community Guest Home provides work placements and supervision for students who are currently enrolled in this program at the NSCC Sydney Campus.
  • Dominion Community Guest Home participates in a Student Summer Placement program, which it monitors and reports on summer students with disabilities who work with the Continued Care Assistants.
  • Dominion Community Guest Home also participates in the VON Adult Recreation Program. This level of recreation would provide the clients with another form of stimulation at a social level. He/She could help each resident recognize the contributions that they had made throughout a lifetime and help one another to participate in meaningful activities in the community.

Residential Care Philosophy of Service

Residential Care Facilities are settings designed to promote, encourage and facilitate the continued personal growth and development of each resident. This is to enhance his/her potential to live and socialize in the least restrictive, most integrative circumstances available in the community.
