Cobourg Retirement Residence Permanently Closing

In Editor Choice, Local

Cobourg Retirement Residence is permanently closing its doors in the upcoming months.

Vice President of Operations with Lifetimes Living Inc. who own the facility located at 310 Division Street confirmed to Today’s Northumberland the 31-residents (full capacity is 47 residents), their families and the 11 staff were told of the decision on June 20.

“For over three decades, Cobourg Retirement has provided safe, quality, and comfortable care to the Cobourg community. Despite its long history and following a detailed review of the Home’s long-term sustainability, the decision has been made to close the home,” said English in a e-mail to Today’s Northumberland.

“We have a team of people who will be working closely with the residents and their families to provide guidance and support during their transition to a new home.”

English said, “a comprehensive list” of retirement homes has been shared with residents and Lifetimes Living Inc. which owns Cobourg Retirement Residence, “are facilitating tours and introductions to assist in the transition process to ensure everyone finds a new home that meets their needs.”

Cobourg Retirement Residence has also held a “seniors open house” which welcomed other retirement homes to Cobourg Retirement to speak with residents and families.

“Our team members have support through the Employee and Family Assistance program (EFAP), and can access additional help to ensure they can transition to a role in a new Home or elsewhere.”

English said, Cobourg Retirement Residence, “will stay open until each resident has found a new placement” and the official closing date will be based on the needs of the transitioning residents.

At this time English said they have no plans for the building once it becomes vacant.
