Imagine a small community, nestled in a quiet neighbourhood, where people with dementia live life their way in cottage-style households. Here, residents are free to explore and enjoy their surroundings within the safety and comfort of a secure setting. This is The Village.
The community centre is our social hub and gathering place, and includes a general store, cafe and bistro, salon, and spa. With flexible programming, activity and crafting spaces, the centre is designed as a place to socialise and engage in stimulating activities. It is the cornerstone of our community.
Every person’s fundamental desire to achieve well-being, purpose and fulfillment does not diminish with age or dementia. At The Village, we don’t see our residents as dementia patients; we see the person and their story first. Meeting their basic, physical needs is just the beginning. Keeping residents connected to family, and finding a sense of place in a community is essential for a full and meaningful life — as is ensuring each person has the right to direct their own day-to-day living in a safe, natural environment. By providing true care through genuine, two-way relationships and focusing on the possibilities within each resident, we help them live a life of fun, laughter, love and joy — a full life.
Our six cottages allow residents the opportunity to live at home. All the rooms and features of a typical house are provided in each cottage, including private rooms with ensuite bathrooms. In these cottages, residents live as part of a small familial group facilitated by a trained household team.
Living here is about more than just renting a room; it’s about being part of something bigger and more vibrant. Every resident is a valued member of the community, and enjoys access to all amenities, activities, and support — like enriched living facilitation, around-the-clock specialised dementia support, nursing care tailored to the unique needs of each resident, and of course, home cooking.
