One of Halifax’s leading property
developers is partnering with the world’s leading provider of senior care to
offer invaluable in-home support to its senior residents.
Southwest Properties and Home Instead
Senior Care announced the partnership as part of their shared commitment to
helping seniors live independently within the comfort of their own home. Home
Instead Senior Care’s services range from concierge-like personal assistance
and home support to in-home assisted living.
“This is an exciting new partnership for
us, giving our team the opportunity to enhance the lives of aging adults and
families who call Southwest Properties their home,” said Jeanie Burke, owner of
the Home Instead Senior Care office in Halifax. “Not only will Southwest’s
older residents be able to live at home safely and comfortably, they will also
have access to a Care Navigator, who will be able to assist them with their
care plans and help them navigate the healthcare system.”
Jennifer Poirier, Vice President, Real
Estate for Southwest Properties, considers the partnership with Home Instead a
natural fit, given the company’s focus on providing its residents with
everything they could want in a vibrant community, including being able to call
it home as they continue to age.
“At Southwest Properties, we believe that
an essential part of our success is an emphasis on people as much as places,”
said Poirier. “Partnering with Home Instead makes perfect sense for us, giving
our residents a level of care, support and customer experience you would not
expect to find outside a dedicated retirement residence.”
The Home Instead partnership extends to
all of the properties owned by Southwest Properties in metro Halifax, including
Bishop’s Landing and Grainery Lofts and new properties, such as Maple, coming
to downtown Halifax. Southwest currently owns and operates more than 1,250
quality apartments and condos situated in the city’s most popular residential
