As people grow older, their housing needs may change over time. Research shows that most people prefer to live as independently as possible for as long as possible. As you think about the type of housing you need today, you may also want to consider what kind of access to services, health and social supports you may need in the future.

Southern Health-Santé Sud is fortunate to have many housing and support options available to meet your needs to help you live independently in your community including:

Assisted Living

Assisted Living is independent apartment living that provides housing for seniors combined with services the tenant may purchase from the landlord in addition to rent, such as housekeeping, laundry and meals. For more information regarding living options, please contact the Seniors and Long-Term Care.

Supportive Housing

Supportive Housing is another option available if you are no longer able to live in the community with the available resources but you are not yet ready to live in a personal care home. 24-hour supervision is provided in an apartment living arrangement, where the tenant purchases services from the landlord in addition to rent. For more information regarding Supportive Housing, please contact your Case coordinator - Home Care.
