Weekly staples shopping is available to residents with no service fee. Orders must be submitted by noon on Tuesday for Friday delivery, right to your door. Items include: toilet paper, paper towel, Kleenex, bread, eggs, butter, cheese, milk, and cream.
Emergency Response System

Residents may set up an existing medical alert system or opt-in to our inhouse LifeAid system at no cost, which is attached to transponders throughout the building. When residents activate the alert button, staff are automatically sent an email and emergency services are called to respond. Residents will receive a call back to ensure it’s not a false alarm before services are dispatched. Emergency services workers are provided with the resident’s medical history and list of medications. LifeAid can also be set up to automatically call a predetermined contact person to alert them of the incident.
