St. Demetrius Development Corporation is a not-for profit organization which operates the Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre (Care Centre) and St. Demetrius Apartments. We are dedicated to serving the needs of seniors and meeting the demands of a growing senior population with care and compassion.
The Care Centre is a long-term care home for seniors, with a focus on seniors of Ukrainian descent. At the Care Centre we take care of the frailest seniors who are faced with multiple health issues, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our excellence in care earned us a three year accreditation by CARF, which is the maximum awarded.
The Care Centre provides services to seniors in the community as well. Our Meals on Wheels program delivers freshly cooked ethnic food to East European seniors in the community. We offer many exciting opportunities for volunteering, socialization and participation by seniors.
The Care Centre is a community hub where seniors, community members and younger generations come together to volunteer and participate in unique cultural celebrations, community events and recreational activities.
The St. Demetrius Apartment Rental Building is designed to meet the needs of seniors who can live independently. The on-site recreational and socialization common areas make it a perfect place for seniors to maintain active lifestyles and enjoy being part of a vibrant community of seniors.
Underlining our care and services for seniors is a shared community vision of seniors’ care and respect for the unique lives of seniors.
The Care Centre is built on a solid foundation of community leadership, community involvement and community partnerships. It is the support and involvement of our community which is at the heart of all our achievements and our identity as an organization serving the needs of seniors.
With the continued support of our Ukrainian community, we are able to sustain the culturally sensitive aspects of our care for seniors, introduce service enhancements to meet the increasing need for specialized care for seniors with some of the most complex health issues, as well as grow our programs and services to more seniors in the community.
We look forward to meeting the evolving needs of our community through dialogue and partnership.
The Care Centre belongs to the community.
