What is Supportive Housing?
Supportive housing are apartment buildings that also provide support services to tenants. Support services assist tenants with daily living tasks so that they can live independently in their own apartments.
Services are provided based on the level of care required and can be increased or decreased as necessary.
Supportive housing can delay or prevent moving into a long-term care home by providing appropriate levels of care.
The services provided allow tenants to live in their own residence while retaining as much independence and private life as possible.
Supportive housing staff are on-site 24 hours a day/7 days a week and can provide assistance with:
- Personal care
- Medication reminders
- Social activities
- One to one support
Supportive housing and long-term care home eligibility is determined by the North West Community Care Access Centre (CCAC).
How Much Does Supportive Housing Cost?
There are two fees for tenants of supportive housing. One fee is for the apartment rent and a second fee is for support services.
Rent for a standard 1 bedroom apartment is $950.00 per month.
Rent price includes, heat, hydro, cable television and parking.
Tenants are responsible for their own telephone and internet.
Twenty apartments are eligible for Rent Geared to Income (RGI) assistance.
Support Service Costs
Support Service packages range in price depending on the amount of support required as determined by North West Community Care Access Centre assessment.
- $400 co-pay to the support services package
This support fee provides care requirements based on your assessment, as well as one full meal per day in our dining room. Additional hours of services are available at an additional cost.
Packages can be adjusted depending on need. If care needs become more than supportive housing can provide, we work with the client/family to look into long-term care application.
