|Background:||An independant Island-based company, Andrews senior living facilities have been providing residents with secure and comfortable living in licensed and fully-staffed locations for more than 20 years. In 2006, Andrews of Charlottetown, Andrews of Summerside and Andrews of Stratford locations were purchased by Keith and Carolyn O'Neill. Andrews of PEI recognizes the importance of providing comfort for the mind, body and souls of its residents. Every facility has 24 hour personal care provided by trained healthcare professionals who are there to assist residents in areas which require supervision and support as well as continued monitoring of their overall health and well-being. Activities are an important part of the Andrews' philosophy of wellness. Each location has a full-time Program Coordinator who organizes a wide variety of activities to meet the varied needs of its residents. Home cooked meals are provided three times daily at each location. Red Seal Chefs work with a professional dietician who evaluates all meal plans ensuring standards are being maintained at the highest quality. Personal attention is given to the nutritional requirements of all residents, including those with special dietary needs. Excellence in nursing care is a priority for Andrews of PEI. In recognition of the O'Neill's appreciation for the UPEI School of Nursing and the education it provides to nursing students, many of whom participate in caring for seniors in Andrews of PEI locations, they have established the Andrews of PEI Nursing Award.|
The university traces its roots back to 1804, when Lt. Governor Edmund Fanning and the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island called for the establishment of Kent College. By 1820, the first Kent College building, known as "the National School", or James Breading's School was erected. Later succeeded by Central Academy, which received a Royal Charter in 1834.
