About H.J. McFarland Home

H.J. McFarland Memorial home is a supported living facility for seniors, supported by the municipality. Our address is 603 County Road 49, Picton, Ontario, K0K2T0.

The Home has a population of 84 residents. Although the current majority of residents are seniors, the home accepts applications from all persons over the age of 18. The home is funded through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care/ Local Health Integration Network, resident accommodation charges, and supported as necessary by the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward.

We have four Resident Home Areas Lilac Lane, Willow Wing (our secure area), Maplewood Walk and Whispering Pines. Each of our Home areas has a sitting area with chairs, couch, T.V. and fireplace. We have three dining areas, one is upstairs in Whispering Pines and the other two are downstairs; one in the Willow Wing and the other beside the auditorium. Our Auditorium is where most of our big activities take place, such as entertainment, monthly birthday parties etc. We also have a family room that can be reserved for you and your family to spend time with your loved one, just book ahead of time with the Nutritional Supervisor.

We understand that residents are living at the Home because they have care needs that can no longer be met on their own. We appreciate that it is a difficult transition from living independently to becoming a resident in a Long Term Care Home. We do everything we can to help make this transition as easy as possible. We offer a range of services and programs that enrich the Quality of Life of our Residents and help them adjust to their new home.  For more information about the Home, how to apply to the Home, and how to support us, please click on one of the links below or scroll down.
