Giving Priorities

Enhanced Health and Wellness

We pride ourselves in supporting individuals with significant medical needs. Our Resident Support Team works diligently in partnership with individuals, family members, team members and other partners to ensure residents have access to the equipment and therapies they need. Gifts made to this priority will support resident’s access to needed and enhanced medical equipment and therapies to ensure they are able to live with the highest quality of life.

Community Inclusion

Our Community Inclusion Program forms the heartbeat of Elmwood! Recreational programs are offered based on the goals set by residents and are aimed to fulfill the social, cultural and spiritual needs of each individual. Programming is coordinated in-house and through community-based opportunities. Resident calendars are regularly filled with activities such as art club, literacy club live music, sporting events, city festivals and many community events.

Community Access via Transportation

To ensure residents can live fulfilled lives in their community they require access to safe, reliable and appropriate transportation. Elmwood is not provided capital funding to purchase vehicles yet maintaining a fleet of vehicles is key to the services we provide and ensures residents are able to attend medical appointments, Day Programs, employment, recreational activities and community events.

Quality Accessible Homes

At Elmwood we believe that home is where the heart is. Elmwood opened its doors over 50 years ago with the intention to provide support that reflects a family home environment that cares for its residents throughout their life. This remains one of our highest priorities and gifts made to this priority will ensure we have the ability to improve accessibility, ensure our homes remain up to date and provide additional comforts to the residents we serve.
