The building has six dining rooms, one in each resident unit. The first floor is a secured environment for residents with dementia and gives access to a safe and secure outdoor garden area. There are lounge areas for residents and families to socialize and to enjoy recreational activities. A hair salon is available. The facility offers a bathing and Adult Day Program to seniors in the community. Televisions are in each dining area as well as a large screen TV and entertainment system in the grand room.
The building is a short walk to shopping (groceries, drug store, banks, restaurants) and amenities in the James Bay Square and surrounding areas. For families visiting from out of town, a number of bed and breakfast accommodations are within walking distance. Bus routes to downtown areas and connecting communities are close by and easily accessible. Beacon Hill Park, the Inner Harbour, and the Dallas Rd waterfront are only blocks away.
