In early 2006 a group of concerned people met to pursue the possibility of building a home for senior people. After an extensive search the Abbeyfield model was chosen. The next step involved incorporation as a Society which came about on May 23, 2006. Actual construction began in late summer of 2006. Over the next two years, many volunteers, both local and provincial organizations worked together with the contractors to construct and complete the building.
The completed building has rooms for 12 residents with a central kitchen, laundry room, library and dining/living room area. Our first residents moved in by mid August 2008. Abbeyfield is not a care home. It is for people who want an independent but secure and supportive living.
