Operated in partnership with Fife House, this site has 112 mixed units and offers supportive housing for Fife House clients living with HIV/AIDS and frail seniors receiving WoodGreen assisted living services. It also hosts an 11-unit transitional housing program for individuals living with HIV/AIDS and working toward permanent housing.
These programs offer individual, clinical supports to people aged 55 and older living with mental health and/or substance use issues, cognitive issues (i.e. dementia), frailty, and other psychogeriatric conditions related to the aging process.
