Combating Loneliness, Helplessness and Boredom
The plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom affect all ages. For older
persons, these plagues can be devastating to their quality of life. Our philosophy of
support and care strives to ensure every day is filled with opportunities to eliminate
helplessness, loneliness and boredom.
We create the space for individuals of all ages to live their best life – a life worth living with meaning, purpose and choice. This is done through the provision of housing and care (long-term care, childcare, assisted living, supportive housing, supportive independent living and home care). Our community-based care and support model is integrated, intergenerational, inclusive and innovative.
