BRAMPTON, ONT. — Jeevan Niwas has announced the official groundbreaking of its first retirement village, to be located at 9664 Goreway Dr. in Brampton, Ont.
The $80 million project is privately owned and funded. When completed, the retirement village will provide 155 units of housing with care services for Greater Toronto Area seniors of South Asian descent, stated a release.
Jeevan Niwas Retirement Village, Brampton, is intended to be the first of similar planned communities across Canada. The developer said the new facilities are a recognition that not all seniors of South Asian descent can be cared for in an extended-family setting.
Jeevan Niwas Retirement Village has been designed in collaboration with Origin Active Lifestyle Communities Inc., a Canadian operator with experience developing and operating a full spectrum of senior living houses.
The facility is projected to open for occupancy in 2024 and will offer 103 full-service supported independent living rental apartments, 36 suites for assisted living and a dedicated neighbourhood of 16 memory care units.
“The Retirement Village in Brampton will feature a full range of aging-in-place accommodation and health care services, from supported to assisted and even memory care services,” stated Sandeep Dhupar, the managing partner at Jeevan Niwas, in a statement. “To truly establish the feeling of a home and to ensure seniors experience the utmost comfort, the staff at Jeevan Niwas will converse with residents using the most common South Asian languages.”
