Our Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a waiting list?
The short answer is yes, however, some suites are still filled on a first come first served basis. On our waiting list, you are called when you activate your application, which could be right away or in the future, you choose. We will begin calling you for open suites of your choosing when you want to be called. You maintain your place on our waiting list even if you are active and turn down a suite. Filling in an Application for Residence is the process for going on our waiting list.
How many people live here?
Approximately 200 people in 155 independent/enriched living suites and 20 personal care home suites.
What sets you apart from other seniors’ residences?
A couple things come to mind – the backyard is second to none for those who enjoy the outdoors and like the feel of country living minutes from downtown. Also, there is a fridge and stove in each suite, temperature controlled underground parking, and a well-equipped wood working shop. These things along with a social worker on staff and friendly, kind residents sets us apart for comfortable living. A tour helps to see if we are the best fit for you.
Is the food good?
This question is best answered by the people who live here and we encourage prospective residents to come have coffee with our residents to get the real answers to these types of questions. What we can tell you is there is a food services supervisor dedicated to quality food and service. Residents have opportunity to comment on every meal and these comments are reviewed and acted upon. We offer 2 entrée choices at our evening meal and the lunch meal is a’ la cart with a daily special. Menus are available in advance from the office, the website and posted daily.
Do you have 24 hour staffing available?
Emergency maintenance staff is available 24 hours. Residents are also given a Life Aid pendant to press if they need medical attention at any time day or night. Our intermediate care home has 24 hour awake staffing on site.
