Support service staff will help with apartment repairs and maintenance which is critical in one’s ability to remain in the community and out of an institutional facility. As one ages in place, the home serves an increasingly important function: as a location for the delivery of services and a stabilizing and familiar part of the older person’s life.

Social support services are provided by an interdisciplinary team of English and trilingual social workers and case managers. All support services will be provided free of charge by an interdisciplinary team of English and bilingual staff and through linkage agreements with other senior service providers, including:
