In 1970 CAMA Woodlands opened its doors for the first time as a Nursing Home. There were twelve residents initially.
March 1988 permission was granted by the Ministry of Health for CAMA Woodlands to expand to a sixty bed nursing home, plus four beds for respite care.
August 17, 1989 the ground breaking ceremonies were held at the location for the new home.
October 26, 1990 the new building was completed. All twenty residents from the old home were moved into the new facility. A great deal of planning went into the move. The initial move went very well with the cooperation and assistance of the residents, family members, staff, volunteers, fire department and handi -van. The official dedication of the new facility was February 21, 1991.
In 2009 an application was made to the MOH to redevelop the 64 bed home to an “A” facility. At this same time the Board of Directors gave the go ahead to expand the home to double the size (128 beds).
January 1, 2011 CAMA Woodlands purchased St. Olga’s Lifecare in Hamilton (a ‘C’ Facility) to acquire the increase of licenses needed (64). CAMA took ownership and management of home until the new and renovated home is completed.
April 2014 first phase was completed, the residents of the current home moved to the brand new home. The existing CAMA closed off and the architects, builders and trades people came in for 7 months with the result being a completely renovated 64 beds; making the whole home 128 beds.
All residents who were in St. Olga’s moved to the newly renovated building the last week of November 2014 and St. Olga’s of Hamilton was sold and would not be used again for Long Term Care.
