We are dedicated to fulfilling the human spirit, mind, and soul. We provide a safe, respectful and compassionate environment for elders and offer a variety of opportunities for meaningful engagement and community connectedness through our person-centered and spontaneous activities that are compatible with the interests, needs, and desires of our elders.

Our onsite Social Worker assists elders and their families with the transition to LTC through one on one visit sessions with residents and group sessions with family members. Further supports to elders in the Home and their caregivers are provided around issues of loss, change, anxiety, depression, and conflict. The Social Worker is a resource for Mediation, Advocacy, Substitute Decision Makers, and Financial/Government related services.
Here at Trinity Village, you will find over 30 gardens full of flowers and activity. From burgeoning community vegetable gardens to a quiet shaded haven, opportunities abound for your involvement. In the morning you might sow a row of radish seed in your own garden plot. In the afternoon you could join a group of friends and design a large flower planter for the porch. In the Autumn you might find yourself pushing tulips and crocuses into bulb pans to be ready for blooming indoors in February or helping to decorate the front entranceways of the Studios or the Continuing Care Centre with a Fall display. Whatever your garden interest, the Horticulture Manager will work with you toward achieving your goals.

Our inclusive community strives to provide holistic care, which includes spiritual care, for our residents and their families. With the development of a pastoral relationship borne out of compassion for our residents and their families, our Chaplain provides support for the following:
