At last week’s resident meeting, I announced the news that we had exchanged contracts to purchase the Rosebud Village on Bayview Road, Rosebud.
This is an older Village of 105 one and two bedroom independent units and a community centre and has seven staff, most of whom are part time.
We will be meeting all the current staff and residents this week to introduce ourselves and talk about our philosophy and goals for the Village.
Over the last few years, we have been looking at opportunities to develop our services in other locations, either through the purchase of vacant land and building, or to work with existing villages to ensure that we can expand. Rosebud Village was an opportunity to take our services to the lower Peninsula (we already have a large community care presence in this area) and to further develop our accommodation services.
What does this mean for the Village – in practical terms, very little. There may be an opportunity to share some services, but this will be minimal. The expectation is that Rosebud will operate independently and be self-sufficient.
We expect to take over responsibility for the Village on 6th April and we will be working through the transition process over the coming weeks.
If you have any questions on this matter, please contact Kim Jackson or myself.
