Transitional Supportive Housing Opens

Date: 2010-11-15

St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Centre of Excellence for Integrated Seniors' Services (CEISS) Transitional Supportive Housing Services at McKellar Place, 325 Archibald Street, Thunder Bay, ON.

The North West Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), North West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and St. Joseph's Care Group have worked in partnership to make these temporary supportive housing units available at McKellar Place. The supportive housing units are being managed by St. Joseph's Care Group and support services have been contracted by Habib Enterprises to Retirement Life Communities.

The funding for the Transitional Supportive Housing at McKellar Place will transfer to the CEISS when it is ready for occupancy. Tenants of McKellar Place will be guaranteed a supportive housing apartment at the CEISS, should they wish to move.

These apartments are designed for seniors who are able to live independently with some support from staff within the building. Supportive Housing staff are onsite 24 hours, 7 days a week, to assist tenants with tasks such as personal care needs, bathing assistance, medication reminders, housekeeping, laundry, social activities, outings and appointments.

Construction of the one-hundred thirty-two Supportive Housing Apartments at the Centre of Excellence for Integrated Seniors' Services located on Lillie Street North, is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2012. For more information and updates about the CEISS project please visit
