Assisted Living

Our qualified Personal Support Workers (PSWs) provide services in designated apartment buildings in Dutton Dunwich and West Lorne. They can assist with personal care (grooming, bathing), light housekeeping/laundry services, medication reminders and checks, security checks and social support. We accept referrals from health care providers and self-referrals, and all applicants are assessed by our Assisted Living Coordinator. There is no cost for services to eligible clients.

For more information, or to discuss your needs, contact Vicky at 519-768-1715 x2226.
