We received a report in March 2010 about a haunting in a nursing home in Essex County. For the privacy sake of current residents, and staff we will keep the name, and exact location of the facility confidential. While it is not at all unusual to hear of hauntings at senior's residences or long term care facilities because statistically spirits seem to haunt places where they either worked, lived, or played, what sets this particular report apart is that it involves the apparition of a very young girl.

 

Residents and staff have reported experiences with what some believe is a young girl "ghost" who is continuously running down the hallways. In total there has been approximately 9 current witnesses of this child apparition. When one of the nurses tried to investigate and called out to her the girl "ghost" reportedly just kept running. No one at this home seems to know who this girl is or why she has been seen there.

 

The nursing home is not very old, and we can only speculate that maybe the young girl ghost is somehow tied in with whatever the building served as in the past.

 

Our thanks go out to the witnesses for sharing this report with us. We have purposefully left out an exact address and name of this nursing home as we are compliant with the Ontario Privacy Act, however if this sounds familiar to you and you can add further information or if you have had a similar experience in Essex County please contact us via This email address is being protected from spambots.

We received the following in August 2011. Our thanks go out to the staffer for sharing this information with us:


"I have been and employee at this nursing home for 4 years now. In the 4 years that I have been working there I have seen this ghost numerous times as well as talking to some residents that have seen her as well (including a lady who is completely blind.

She looks like she could be around the age of 5 or 6 and is wearing what looks like an old fashioned summer dress that is white and comes to just below the knee.

I have never seen her running but I have seen her walking down the back hall of the unit that i work on. Like you say in your article i am not alone in this as i have heard of other co-workers seeing something out of the corner of there eyes.

She does not seem to be angry or upset at all she just seems to be curious. almost acting as a guardian angel to these residents. she visits them and sits on their beds talking with them from what the residents have told me she is a friendly, cute, nice little girl and she seems to have a lot to say (all good it seems).

The building was not used for anything in the past except for a nursing home. it was build 6 years ago and for all i can remember from when i was a child is that it was a field. i don't recall anything ever being there. i would love to be able to look into the past of this property and find out what was there in past beyond what i can remember."
