Rocmaura History

Rocmaura is a 150 bed, fully accredited nursing home providing 24 hour care. The Home has devised a program of modular care: Rocmaura is divided into 4 distinct courts, each with its own court-specific multidisciplinary staff,trained by consultant, Len Fabiano, CEO of FCS International and has its own specific programming according to the specialty of the court.

Rocmaura was officially opened on December 16, 1972, eighty-four years after the first Nursing Home was opened on December 18, 1888, under the sponsorship of the Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception(SCIC). The SCIC maintained its high standards throughout the years, providing quality care to the elderly who's needs are beyond what family and community services are able to offer.

The Home has Recreationist-directed programming, a unique Pastoral Care and Mission focus, a proactive Resident Council and has participated in numerous provincial pilots plus conducted its own research in the field of Alzheimer Care.

Rocmaura is a leading provider of care for seniors of all denominations in the Saint John region. Our Home provides 24-hour nursing care, with all ancillary services, to eligible persons who have been assessed by the Department of Social Development.

As part of our Outreach Program, Rocmaura takes pride in the fact that we have provided Meals-on-Wheels to the public from March, 1977 to November, 2010. Rocmaura plays an important role in community life by making its meeting rooms available to the public and by hosting various public events and gatherings.
