Seniors housing expanded for Lake Country

Lake Country Senior Housing Society is purchasing four apartments

Lake Country seniors and people with disabilities will  have increased access to affordable housing with support services.

There is an accepted offer for the Lake Country Senior Housing Society to purchase four apartments in an existing condominium building on Beaver Lake Road.

“We are delighted to announce the purchase completion of four apartments in the Brookstone building, located directly across from our Blue Heron Villa, to help fulfill this demand,” said Bill Clark, society president.

The provincial government arranged $752,863 in long-term financing and the society provided $40,000 towards the purchase.

“This allows seniors to age in place in their home communities near family and friends,” said Norm Letnick, MLA.

In addition to a meal plan and basic cleaning support, residents of the apartments will receive access to social and recreational programs offered at Blue Heron Villa, an assisted living complex.

“It’s wonderful to see the purchase of these apartments move forward for the Lake Country Senior Housing Society,” said Owen Dickie, a Lake Country councillor.
