The Village at University Gates is the 14th location in Ontario for Schlegel Villages. The Village at University Gates is a 192-bed Long Term Care home licensed by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and funded through the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) via the Long-Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreement (L-SAA). Access to this level of care is coordinated through the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) www.wwccac.org.
There are six separate specialized home areas called neighbourhoods.
There is 1 Active Dementia home area for persons with Alzheimers and related forms of dementia who are exit seeking or physically active. There are 5 general population neighbourhoods.
Our community is designed as a village. Like a traditional village, we have a variety of common areas and amenities along our Main Street and in the Village Square.
However, because the Village is indoors, it remains comfortable in any weather, winter or summer, rain or shine.
Retirement Suites and Independent Living Apartments are planned for the coming years. When fully built the Village at University Gates will offer a full range of living and care options including:
1. Independent Seniors Apartments for seniors who like the comfort and security of being connected with a care community.
2. Retirement Suites for those wishing or requiring light assistance with activities of daily living.
3. Assisted Care Suites for those whose support needs are primarily physical in nature.
4. Memory Care Suites offering a safe and comfortable environment for those with mild to moderate memory loss.
Residents in all Living Choices will be able to choose from a variety of services including housekeeping, meals, assistance with bathing and dressing, medication administration, and varying levels of health care assistance.
