Neill Hall Update: New Licensed Long Term Care Home Opens in Fredericton North
Neill Hall, a new licensed long term care home located at 610 Cliffe Street in Fredericton North welcomed its first resident today. With support from the Department of Social Development and a strong plan in place respecting all Public Health directives, 60 new residents from the Greater Fredericton area will be established in their new home over the coming weeks.
Named after the Neill family farm, a Fredericton landmark that was passed down for four generations, Neill Hall features an innovative Main Street concept designed to create familiar public spaces for residents to enjoy in a safe and controlled environment. This unique concept helps residents maintain their independence, restores memories from their youth, and encourages socialization and a sense of community. It features a Town Hall, Café, Salon, Chapel and Theatre.
Having a presence in Fredericton North extends Shannex’s commitment to the seniors of the Greater Fredericton area and we look forward to continuing to care for them in this new community for many years to come.

3. Will it cost more for my family member to live at the Shannex long term care home?
No. Residents pay the same amount to live at a Shannex long term care home as they would at any other long term care home in the province. The New Brunswick Department of Social Development determines the daily accommodation rate amount based on each resident’s financial assessment.
Our long term care homes are also licensed by the province through the Department of Social Development and are subject to the same standards, rules and inspections as any other home in the province.

The temperature in the building will be maintained at a level that is comfortable for everyone. As a general rule, it will be maintained at 23 degrees Celsius.

You are welcome to visit your loved one at any time. During the day, visitors are granted access when they arrive by the receptionist, and in the evening when there is no receptionist on duty, visitors can easily be granted access by ringing the doorbell.

The front door is locked at all times for the safety of all residents, but visitors are granted access when they arrive by the receptionist or with a swipe card provided by us to make your visits more convenient.

No. The rails on our new beds run partially along the length of the bed. This is in compliance with current safety best practices.

We encourage open and frequent communications with all residents and family members.
