Mission Statement

To be the community leader in the provision of high quality, safe housing, long term care and services for seniors and people with special needs, in an integrated campus setting.

Philosophy of Care

We will enhance the quality of life for all our residents in a supportive and caring environment because:

  • We believe in the intrinsic worth of individuals and their unique life experiences.

  • We believe in holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to the care of residents, including the importance of family and friends.

  • We believe that each resident has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.

  • We believe in each resident's right to privacy and confidentiality.

  • We believe in helping residents achieve an optimal level of health, wellbeing and functioning.

  • We believe in each resident's right to self-determination with respect to their plan of care and services and their right to "age in place".

  • We believe that continuous quality improvement is essential in order to provide safe, high quality care and to meet the needs of each resident.
