Holland Gardens retirement residence opened its doors and welcomed its first resident on Monday, April 1st, 2019.
Jill Macrae arrived this morning and was greeted with champagne, and a welcome home sign spelt out in balloons. Over the next 30 days, she will be joined by 25 new neighbours who will move into the six-story, 138-unit facility.
“When I drove up and walked in the door, that’s when I really thought, ‘holy smokes, I have a space that’s mine,’” said Macrae.
The Bradford residence is equipped to meet the needs of its residents all under one roof with nurses on call 24/7. Each care floor has a kitchen, dining area, lounges and activity areas.
