Adults with complex health needs
Acquired Brain Injury
Actionmarguerite, located at 185 Despins Street in St. Boniface, is a bilingual long-term care facility providing a range of services to seniors and adults with physical disabilities and loss of autonomy.
In 1935, the Grey Nuns established Centre hospitalier Taché Nursing Centre, until recently referred to as Taché Centre. Our mandate is to serve Winnipeg’s Francophone population and deliver regional specialized services in three specific areas: dementia care with related behaviours, complex and chronic care, and care for those who suffer from an acquired brain injury. We also provide respite care and an Adult Day Centre for seniors and adults living in the community who can benefit from social interaction in a group setting.

Program: Personal Care
Actionmarguerite, located at 1149 Leila Avenue, commonly known as St. Joseph’s Residence is a personal care home serving a culturally-diverse elderly community in Northwest Winnipeg. The home was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1923 and operated as St. Joseph’s Hospital on Salter Avenue. It was then transferred to the Benedictine Sisters in 1973 who proceeded to build a 100-bed personal care home at the current location.

Actionmarguerite provides supportive housing services to the elderly in St. Boniface at two locations. We offer a range of services that contribute to the residents’ autonomy and to an overall better quality of their life.

Actionmarguerite appreciates the generous donors and contributors who share the common vision of its Foundations and endowment funds. The Actionmarguerite Foundation and the Friends of St. Joseph’s Residence are both charitable organizations whose sole purpose is to support the mission, mandate and objectives offered by their programs and services. Contributions and donations are used in promoting initiatives to improve residents’ quality of life and living environments. For more information or to donate, please see our Donate Now page.
Actionmarguerite also benefits from the generosity of the Actionmarguerite Auxiliary. Formerly the Ladies Auxiliary, this benevolent group of dedicated and committed women continue to promote and support fundraising activities through their gift shop at 185 Despins Street in St. Boniface. The proceeds and the sale of items in the gift shop contribute to addressing residents’ needs and to fund special occasion activities.
