Types Of Housing

Self-Contained Apartments

The self-contained apartments are primarily social housing for seniors who are still able to maintain an independent lifestyle. The Cypress View Foundation provides optional meal services for seniors living in the apartments. The Self-Contained Apartments are located on the 3rd through 6th floors of the Teeoda Wing.

The lodge accommodation allows seniors the opportunity to maintain independence without requiring nursing or home care. This includes activities, meals, cleaning, and laundry services. We attempt to provide a home-like atmosphere. Lodge Accommodations are located in the Cypress View Wing, Wild Rose Wing, and the 1st and 2nd floors of the Teeoda Wing.

The supportive living wing contains 45 rooms for seniors who require assistance with their daily medical and personal care.  Meals, portering, med administration, housekeeping, laundry services and an activity program is provided in a home-like atmosphere.  The supportive living wing, Sunrise Vista, provides Health Care Aide staff 24 hours per day.
