Our Community

Ashbourne is a professional, caring and friendly community that is anchored in an established neighbourhood. Regular social activities and entertainment provide ample opportunity to meet new people or to develop new friendships. The fellowship between staff, residents, and neighbours provides a true sense of community spirit. Residents at Ashbourne are not simply residents; they are family.

At Ashbourne, the well-being of our residents is our top priority. We provide a balanced meal every evening and two nutritious snacks during the day, and each floor features an inviting and bright dining room. Our health services are comprehensive. They include trained staff (available 24 hours a day), a prescription service, and home care support.

We also have a Licenced Practical Nurse (LPN) on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we are just moments away from the University Hospital.

In addition, we have a Chaplain available half-time who is available for pastoral care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

An important part of our atmosphere is the range of activities and recreation programs available to residents. Our facilities include a recreation room, a library, a craft room, a patio and meeting rooms. In addition, we have a Chapel, and facilities such as a hair salon and laundry, right in the building. Ashbourne is conveniently located on several bus routes and is close to the major transit hub at the University.
What I and I think all of us residents adore, and would like to keep forever is our evening meal on our own floor. Having 20 or so residents coming together for supper in their own location seems to foster the feeling of family and friendship.      Peter K.
