Question & Answers

What is the goal of the TOGETHER Campaign?
The redevelopment is a $65 million project. This $7.5 million capital campaign will augment the government funding which will enable Maxville Manor to continue to meet the need for long-term care beds and service for seniors locally, and across Eastern Ontario.

Why must we raise money for Maxville Manor to redevelop?
The Ministry of Long-Term Care does not fund upfront construction costs of long- term care homes. Only after construction is completed and the first resident moves in does the Ministry provide an operational subsidy. Therefore, construction funding must come from a combination of equity, mortgage financing and community fundraising. 

How will funds be raised in the community?
Charitable donations will be sought and secured from companies, foundations, service clubs and individuals. Fundraising activities and events will be organized to give every member of the community a chance to participate and support the campaign.

What will my donation contribute to?
Your donation will directly contribute to the costs associated with the plan, design, labour, and supplies required to redevelop the Manor. 

I have donated to previous campaigns; will I continue to be recognized? 
Yes, donations currently recognized on plaques at the Manor will be recognized on a new donor wall in our redeveloped home.

I don’t live in Maxville, why should I support Maxville Manor?
Maxville Manor is 1 of only 3 not-for-profit homes in the Eastern Counties which are highly sought after. As the need for long-term care increases, the geographical area of the residents that we service expands. To date, over 40,000 seniors sit on wait lists in Ontario for long-term care beds therefore securing a bed can mean living further from family and friends than one would hope. Even if you do not live in Maxville, you, or someone you love may seek our services. Our staff, residents, outreach participants and residents living in our senior’s apartments come from Glengarry, Stormont, Dundas, Prescott – Russell, Ottawa and beyond. 

What is the difference between a for profit and a not-for-profit long-term care (LTC) home?
Long-term care homes that operate for-profit prioritize shareholders first and foremost. Their goal is to provide as much money to their owners and shareholders as possible. Not-for-profit homes have no responsibility to shareholders, so they can prioritize residents and focus on quality of care. Maxville Manor residents benefit from the re-investment in care we offer, approximately 20% more hours of direct daily care per resident compared to for-profit homes, our innovative and unmatched service delivery model, and countless community services made available by Maxville Manor. 

What is the difference between a long-term care home and a retirement home? 
A retirement home is a community of older adults who can choose to enjoy a fully independent lifestyle with the option to receive some care and personalized services as they age. Focused on flexibility and independence, retirement homes offer a lot of choice. There is no government subsidy in retirement homes, they are completely paid for by the resident.

A long-term care (LTC) home is a place where supervised care is provided 24/7. Those who qualify for long-term care are seniors and older adults who need a high level of care, require continuous supervision, or can no longer take care of themselves independently (e.g., eating, bathing, dressing). 

The main difference between a long-term care home and a retirement home is that LTC is subsidized by the government. Long-term care homes have 24-hour staff monitoring, and round-the-clock nursing and care. Meals are served within a central area and prepared with dietary restrictions and requirements in mind. Long-term care homes focus on person-centred care which includes physical, social, spiritual, and intellectual activities. 

At Maxville Manor, residents have access to doctors, registered nurses, personal support workers, medication administration, social activities, and much more. 

If you do not raise $7.5 million, will the project move forward? 
We are confident that with your support we will raise the funds. If funds are not raised urgently, the project will be delayed and could be impacted by inflated rates. Seniors depend on long-term care and service, and we are committed to moving forward with the project. 

All donations made to the TOGETHER Campaign will be managed by the Maxville Manor Foundation. Funds will be placed in a restricted fund and used for costs associated with redevelopment.
