This study investigates and proposes modifications to the present provincial long term care model on Prince Edward Island. The current model has been designed to encompass larger numbers of individuals which requires the relocation from the normal everyday existence of an individual to something entirely new. This thesis investigates the possibility to make revisions to this predominant and current model to allow for several smaller rural facilities allowing for the residents to remain within their original communities, lessening the traumatic effects of a transition to an assisted life. Redirecting the focus to rural areas of Prince Edward Island will encourage continual contact between the inhabitant, their family, and their definition of home. The proposed prototypical model will also allow individuals the ability to remain in their communities promoting a longer, healthier way of life.
