Minister Opens Three New Community Homes

first_imgTwenty-four individuals with disabilities will enjoy greater independence and will participate more in their community thanks to the opening of three new community homes in Stellarton, Pictou Co. today, June 30. Community-based homes provides the individual with the programming and support they need while also enhancing their ability to live, work and socialize as independently as possible. “I’m so happy to see so many smiling faces as the residents get ready to move into their new home,” said Community Services Minister Denise Peterson-Rafuse. “These new homes will make life better for the residents and their families as they will know that their loved ones are receiving the support they need while living as independently as they can.” The three new community homes will each be home to eight individuals. The residents will live together but each one will have their own private bedroom. The homes have been named Evergreen Ridge, Brook Haven, and Sky View and are located on the Riverview Homes property. Residents are expected to move in this summer. “This is a great day for my family and especially my brother,” said Rita Marr, sister of a Riverview resident. “We are all so excited that he will have the opportunity to experience a more independent life while also sharing that experience with seven other people. He really can’t wait.” The three community homes are the first phase of a $22-million renovation project funded by the Department of Community Services. The next phase of the project is a total renovation of the main house. “These community homes represent a new beginning for Riverview, its residents, staff and board of directors,” said Mary Ellen Pittoello, chief executive officer of Riverview Homes. “We are excited to move the residents into their new homes and begin the next phase of our renovation.” Riverview Home Corp. provides residential support to about 100 individuals with intellectual, physical and cognitive disabilities as well as individuals with chronic mental illness.last_img read more
