SUPPORT FOR VULNERABLE ADULTS AND SENIORS IN TORONTO’S MOUNT DENNIS NEIGHBOURHOOD
Mount Dennis Supported Housing Services provides supported housing/assisted living services to at-risk adults and seniors living in a large Toronto Community Housing apartment building in the Mount Dennis, the Toronto neighbourhood surrounding the intersection of Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue West. The program serves individuals with complex challenges including mental illness, addiction, chronic physical health issues, social isolation, cultural dislocation, abuse and abandonment.
The Mount Dennis program marks the first LOFT initiative serving both adults and seniors in the same location. It builds on the very successful service model developed by LOFT Seniors Services at the College View, Dunn Avenue and Crosslinks Seniors locations and incorporates our extensive experience providing support services for people of all ages.
Our goal is to provide support with the activities of daily living and to help residents connect with community resources and one another, so they can maintain their independence and live with dignity.
Services Available at Mount Dennis
Intensive on-site daily support and a range of services from personal care and light housekeeping to crisis and emergency intervention. Service coordination, system navigation and case management services are available, including specialized Psychogeriatric Case Management services for older clients navigating the health care and social services systems.
Support services also include assistance with activities of daily living including light housekeeping, personal hygiene and medication management, as well as escorts to appointments.
Active Social Program
Social and recreational activities are an important program element, helping clients connect with their community and, to connect with and build mutually supportive relationships with each other.
