AVEN Manor - A Long Term Care Facility

Opened in 1987, Aven Manor is a 29 bed long term care facility that provides programs and services for NWT seniors with a variety of care needs, including nursing and/or personal care. In February 2013, AVENS received full accreditation with an Exemplary rating from Accreditation Canada.

We are very proud of our Accreditation status. A majority of the funding for the operation and maintenance of the facility comes from the Yellowknife Health and Social Services Authority.
