Healthy Living Centre is proud to host a vast assortment of services that are conveniently available to residents as well as members of the community. These include foot care, massage therapy, chiropractor care & hairdresser.
Home Care service is available just as it would be if you lived at your own home. Fully trained home support workers from public health are on site for approved clients mornings and evenings (and other times as needed) to assist with medications, personal hygiene and morning/evening routines for residents.
Exercises classes are offered which are geared to keeping our mature citizens mobile, active and independent.
Other services – such as Physiotherapy, Optometry, and Pharmacy – may be offered in the future. We are also hoping to host a nurse practitioner and/or a health care aid on site in the future.
Our senior resource coordinator arranges home visits for lonely seniors and shut ins.
