Chapel and Activity Centre
In 1990 the need for a chapel and activity center became urgent. Activation programs had become less effective, since many residents resisted going to the windowless basement activities room. A new combined chapel and activities center was built from the proceeds of a community-wide fundraising campaign. Today this bright center offers inter-denominational religious services, music therapy, and a wide variety of recreational, craft, and social programs.
The Fulford Wing
The historic Fulford Home in Brockville had in recent years been operating as a nursing home to 34 residents, but the building, despite its elegance and homey atmosphere, was increasingly unable to meet the demanding physical standards of a modern nursing home. In 1999 the Boards of Sherwood Park Manor and of Fulford Home combined and began planning a new addition to Sherwood Park Manor to accommodate the Fulford Home residents. Again, the design chosen for this 32-bed addition incorporated the most exacting standards of comfort, convenience, treatment and safety in the province. The first residents transferred over in January, 2001, and the official opening occurred in April, 2001, in the presence of the local MPP, the Honorable Robert Runciman.
