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 areas.
