Residents live independently within a supported apartment complex, with access to around the clock attendant care, rehabilitation services and a team of highly qualified, on-site staff who work with regulated healthcare professionals to provide service in the areas of:

  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Speech-Language Pathology
  • Psychology

Combining the privacy of individual units with a community of peers, residents are encouraged to connect with neighbors and integrate into a supportive network.
