The Cove was founded in 1944 by a group of individuals dedicated to
establishing a retirement home for the elderly of industrial Cape Breton. The Cove started out as a small home in a facility acquired from the Sydney Steel Company.
Over the years, the Cove became a first class nursing home with 110 beds. Special programs were developed to meet the geriatric health, social and spiritual needs of the residents.
The new Cove is impressive by all standards. It is among the most advanced homes of its kind in Atlantic Canada. And there's a plan to be a leader for the next generation. As more of us live longer and hopefully better, we will need special care homes like the Cove.
With the concept of graduated care the staff and volunteers are helping to re-define the way seniors live.
