Coming in 2021, Elisabeth House will house those looking for assisted living, memory and palliative care
in a boutique like setting, nestled in nature on Hamilton mountain.
With seventy-five rooms, state-of-the-art amenities and a philosophy of care
that focuses on a superior experience, Elisabeth House
will be looking to fill a gap between independent living and long-term care.
With news of Sister Elisabeth and her mission to help the poor, the old and the infirm, many supporters urged
her to establish a living facility for older adults who were not yet ready for a nursing home. She studied
many forms of housing for seniors who couldn’t afford substantial mortgages
and found that offering houses on lifeleases with refundable terms was the best option.
In 1981, Sister Elisabeth began construction of the St. Elizabeth Village, a lifeleasing community located on Hamilton mountain.
With over five-hundred homes it became one of the first gated retirement communities in Canada.
In 2014, the St. Elizabeth Home Society sold the St. Elizabeth Village to Novacare Retirement Communities Association, a non-profit
company who continues to establish affordable housing for an active senior community while improving its infrastructure, services and amenities.
