Hesperus Village is a senior’s residence located in Vaughan, Ontario. Established over 3 decades ago, Hesperus is a model for aging in community offering beautiful, affordable elder living where both individuals & community flourish through a caring, social, spiritual and cultural life.
The majority of seniors do not want to go to long term care, nor would they need to, IF we had more places like Hesperus. Living, growing and sharing their lives ‘in community’, our residents find an extended family to be part of in their elder years. The arts, music, gardening, community gatherings and the co-caring models we plan to develop are what make us special and why these donations are so important.
Presently, home to about 100 residents, our residents come from diverse backgrounds. Through a partnership with a local shelter and CMHA York Region some of our units are assigned to help seniors that might otherwise be challenged to find a home. Hesperus is a registered charity so alldonations receive tax receipts.
This third stage of life offers the unique potential for continued development that can only emerge after having ‘experienced life’. We create caring and social environments for seniors to live and create their third act together.
