Antigonish Cares

Do you have a loved one, family friend, or former neighbour living in a long-term care home in our community? Why not take this time to reach out, send a note or draw picture that could help brighten someone’s day! Let’s stay in touch and let residents and workers know that we are thinking of them by sending messages of support, thanks and friendship to brighten spirits and lift the hearts those who need it the most.

The R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home is jointly owned by the Town of Antigonish and the Municipality of the County of Antigonish. Right now, we are thinking of the 136 residents and staff members who need a little extra support from our community during this time.

We invite you and your family to send letters, cards, pictures, paintings and messages of hope to the residents and staff of the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home or any other facility in Antigonish Town and County.
