Local Grant Supports Kingston's Oasis Program
Kingston's Oasis Senior Supportive Living program has received a $75,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
Oasis provides affordable retirement-style living within an existing apartment building.
The program includes three affordable meals a week, a free exercise program, organized social programs, and entertainment.
“This grant provides an exciting opportunity to work with OpenLab, University Health Network, Toronto, to examine similar successful affordable supportive living models in Canada, developed by seniors who wanted to age safely at home, and, to share this information through workshops and other media,” says Christine McMillan, President, Oasis Senior Supportive Living Inc.
