We were blown away by the location of the home as it sits right in front of the bridge to Canada and directly across from the historic SOO Locks! Entering the center you immediately feel at home with a fireplace and seating area to the left and the room opening up to the heart of the facility.
Inside the place it was buzzing with residents. We arrived just in time to catch the start of Sittercise with Patrice. Patrice leads an exercise class for residents that is both safe and keeps everyone active. The class became so popular, they started running two!
We checked in with the Kitchen to see what was cooking, or should I say baking. The staff had just pulled out some amazing looking loaves of bread and there were cookies too!
Seeing the staff interact with the residents and all the effort they went through to prep the facility for spring, it’s clear they want their occupants to be happy and comfortable.
The Freighter View Assisted Living mission is: “Make a positive difference in the lives of our residents by personalizing care, encouraging independence, preserving dignity, protecting privacy, and fostering friendships.” and that is exactly what their great staff are working hard to do each day!
