Acadia takes in nursing home evacuees due to wildfire emergency


Acadia University has taken in evacuees from Shelburne County’s Roseway Manor nursing home who were evacuated as a precautionary measure amid the ongoing wildfires in Nova Scotia. This week, approximately 66 nursing home residents and 40 caregivers began arriving to Acadia’s Wolfville campus, where they have temporarily moved into Acadia’s Chase Court residence. “We are impressed by how carefully the Macleod Group’s Roseway Manor team is executing their evacuation plan, and we are pleased to support their needs at such a challenging time,” said Acadia Director of Safety and Security Patrick Difford.
