Welcome to Emmaus House

Frequently Asked Questions

Emmaus House is a support home, which means exactly what it says.  Rather than provide care, at Emmaus House we provide support for some of your care needs.  Many seniors find themselves in a position where cooking and cleaning and laundry become challenges, and we do all of those things for you.  We also provide a family atmosphere and the opportunity to socialize with other residents if that’s what you like to do.

Many people move into Emmaus House capable of handling all of their own affairs and capable of all of their personal care.  Sometimes as time goes by things change.  While we are not able to provide personal care for any of our residents, families can arrange for private caregivers to begin coming to provide assistance, either through Northern Health’s Home and Community Care, or through the private sector.
