Public Tour Dates Announced for The Meadows

Public tours of The Meadows, Swift Current’s new 225-bed long term care facility, will be available on May 31, June 1 and 2. The tours will provide an opportunity for the public to receive an advanced internal viewing of the beautiful new facility prior to resident occupancy.

The walking tours will be approximately 45 minutes in length with morning, afternoon, and evening opportunities available on each of the three tour dates. Up to 20 tours will be offered each day to ensure that anyone interested in a preview of the new facility will have an opportunity at a time that fits into their schedule.

Pre-registration for public tours is required. Pre-registration will help to maintain the safety and security of all tour participants and will also ensure that there are an appropriate number of participants in each tour.

For those interested in signing up for a tour they must pre-register by phone or email. Please call 306-778-5121 or email to discuss the various date and time options and to book your spot.

Following the completion of public tours the health region will begin its three-phase transition plan into the new facility. The move-in plan will see all residents of the Prairie Pioneers Lodge and additional residents from the Swift Current and Palliser Regional Care Centre’s move into the new facility on Sunday, June 5. Remaining residents of the Swift Current Care Centre will move on Sunday, August 7 and the Palliser Regional Care Centre will complete its move on Sunday, September 18. Sundays were carefully selected as the most appropriate date so that, where possible, family members may be present to assist their loved ones.
