Built in 2006, the three-storey building at the Wellesley boasts large, bright suites available with a variety of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans. The Wellesley includes 40 publicly subsidized units and 24 private-pay units that cater to the needs of both independent residents and those who require additional assistance.

Furthermore, our 24/7 emergency response system ensures residents have access to the nursing assistance they need when they need it.
At the Wellesley, the safety and security of our residents is a top priority. For instance, all entrances and exits to the building are equipped with code or key entry.
