Property Description: As the need for senior’s care across Ontario continues to grow, one of the greatest needs continues to be Windsor Ontario. With a seemingly large number of beds the wait lists continue to grow. The reality is, that in a number of homes within the Erie St. Clair Region several homes have waiting lists for basic accommodations that are greater than the number of beds/licenses. Certainly the need can be demonstrated in this part of Ontario.
This application represents an ask of 80 licenses to be developed at 930 Marion Avenue. This is a destination designed for those seniors that are looking for a neighbourhood setting in a historic part of Windsor. As a smaller setting the site promotes a more “personal” ambiance with access to local parks, streets with the backdrop of post-war style housing.
The design also makes access much easier for staff and residents alike since it is only a two story structure. The plan is to integrate seniors into a neighbourhood and engage the local community to adopt and embrace the home as a vital component of their neighbourhood. Like other projects, community outreach and program will be vital to the success of this project.
