"My client has been using WoodGreen’s bus since becoming wheelchair-bound over a year ago. He has difficulty using Wheel-Trans due to a cognitive impairment that makes it challenging to arrange his own appointments.”
“Taxis are more expensive and not always as comfortable. I feel like I come first when the driver pulls up. I don’t know if I could get to my doctor appointments without the WoodGreen transportation.”
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.
