The St. Demetrius (Ukrainian Catholic) Development Corporation is a not-for-profit charitable organization providing compassionate, culturally-sensitive care, home and services to seniors. We are comprised of a 152 bed long-term care home in the heart of Etobicoke and a 259 unit independent seniors apartment. We also offer a wide range of community programs and services to seniors living in the community.
The Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre is a 152 bed long-term care home committed to honouring the diversity among our residents and to creating a caring environment. We are sensitive and respectful of the cultural and spiritual needs of everyone we serve. Our resident-centred care and services philosophy acknowledges the uniqueness of each resident and aligns with our corporate Vision, Mission and Values, as well as Ontario’s Residents’ Bill of Rights. We recognize and honour our residents’ right for autonomy, to share their life stories and to maintain their chosen lifestyle.
The resident and family, as core members of the interdisciplinary care team, are the primary contributors to the residents’ individualized Plan of Care. Our interdisciplinary resident care and services team ensures that our innovative services are responsive and appropriate for each resident. Our care and services philosophy is demonstrated through our integrated programs of care modalities, therapies and services that address the total well-being of each resident. Our team is committed to working with each resident to achieve his/her maximum potential. We encourage and support our residents’ involvement within our Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre community as well as engagement in activities in our local community.
