Transitional Wellness Suites at the Binbrook site
AbleLiving assists local area hospitals by introducing transitional wellness suites at its Binbrook site. Some patients recuperating in a hospital bed after their acute care is complete can now be offered an alternate level of care in a more appropriate and less costly setting. Temporary accommodation that offers a private bedroom in a congregate setting with access to personal support, meals, laundry, nursing, therapy and recreational activities gives individuals an opportunity to stabilize and strengthen in a more home-like environment. When ready they can transfer to their permanent residence, with appropriate supports in place if necessary, to lessen the likelihood of re-admission to hospital.
AbleLiving Expands Community Support Services
AbleLiving is proud to be selected as a partner in a new collaborative model which provides older adults living in their service area with low to moderate levels of personal care within their homes. This additional service is being managed by our staff in the AbleLiving office located within St. Elizabeth Village in Hamilton, with referrals coming from the Community Care Access Centre.

We want to maximize independence, enhance quality of life and help people find solutions that meet their needs.
AbleLiving is a non-profit charity that has been serving adults with physical disabilities for more than thirty-five years. Our services are located throughout Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe area.
We provide the assistance that people may need to manage their lives as independent adults; help with activities of daily living including eating, maintaining continence, bathing, dressing, personal care and mobility and support with activities that help with the management of daily lives such as homemaking, meal preparation and assistance with medication.
In addition to a wide array of supportive care options we offer training in life skills, self-development, falls prevention and dementia care.
Among our clients are adults with physical disabilities, elderly people who are becoming frail, and family members who need respite from the role of caregiver.
The independent living philosophy has helped us develop services that respect independence, the right to choose and the freedom to take risks. A client with a physical disability knows what attendant care they need and our programs are designed with this in mind.
Integration. Inspiration. Independence.
