Environmental Services

The Environmental Services Department consists of three major functions: Laundry, Housekeeping, and Maintenance. The main purpose of the Department is to provide a safe, clean, and attractive facility including, well landscaped grounds and functional equipment.

Laundry Services

All new clothing/bedding items must be brought to the laundry for labeling before using, to help prevent loss. York Care Centre is not responsible for personal clothing items being lost or damaged. Processing is limited to machine washing and drying but does not include dry cleaning or ironing. All clothing must bear the name of the resident.

Housekeeping Services

Cleaning Services are provided daily to all resident and common areas.


Maintenance personnel are available typically Monday – Friday, although they are also available for emergencies. Any maintenance concerns may be directed to Environmental Services by requisition through the Unit Coordinator.
