For over 30 years, Shannex has been providing care to the people of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. With 21 Long Term Care homes (or “Nursing Homes”) across both provinces we have extensive experience in caring for people as they age and providing residents with a comfortable place to call home while they receive exceptional care.
At Shannex, we promote a resident directed philosophy. Our team members work closely with residents and their families to ensure that they play an active role in making decisions about their lives and care. Residents choose how they want to live their lives and these choices are reflected in the service and care we provide. Our Philosophy of Service is our promise to residents and our values are the backbone of our culture.
Shannex provides care and service in a way that supports residents in living their best life in homes where the service, programs and buildings themselves are designed to promote resident independence, wellness, safety and security. Every Shannex Nursing Home is licensed and accredited and offers nursing and personal care, as well as access to allied health professionals including dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and recreation therapists.
Based on research and best practice, we provide care in small neighbourhoods or households, which gives residents ready access to everything they need all in a home environment. This approach also means that residents have the opportunity to develop strong relationships with our teams who work and volunteer in the community in which they live.

Interested in volunteering with us? Volunteers are an important part of the daily life of people living in long term care. Lending your time can be as simple as reading a book, having a chat over a cup of tea or going for a walk on a sunny day. If you have a particular location in mind, please contact the home directly using our Locations tab. If you are unsure and have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
