New Seniors Housing Test Project Opens on White Squirrel Way
LOFT is providing specialized supportive housing services for older adults and seniors who need support in moving out of hospital at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The program is located in twelve housing units in one of CAMH’s new buildings on White Squirrel Way. This test project will assess the effectiveness of our specialized, intensive, one-on-one support model in helping residents to regain their confidence and re-learn life skills. People will live in LOFT’s White Squirrel Way location for three to six months after which they will be ready to move on to live independently with appropriate supports. The first two clients moved in on December 21 and were delighted to celebrate Christmas out of hospital and in a place of their own.
