The Heights at Mt. View Receives Design Award

The Heights at Mt. View has received a Special Recognition Award from The American Institute of Architects' Design for Aging Review. The award was presented to (left-right) Dayle Krahn, VP Property & Development, Baptist Housing, Patrick Cotter, Partner ZGF Cotter Architects and Howard Johnson, CEO Baptist Housing during the annual Leading Age convention held in Boston, November 2015.


CEO Howard Johnson began our fall newsletter with an autumn greeting:

At Baptist Housing, we want our Residents to achieve a sense of vocational clarity.

In the "autumn" season of life, it is easy to lose a sense of worth, having had a workplace to go to or a family to raise for the previous years of our life. What we tend to forget is that the idea of vocation is intended for all of life - including these autumnal years.

A Special Visitor

Ishtar the Arabian horse has been visiting the Village at Smith Creek for over 20 years. Ishtar’s owner, Janice Visscher, is a neighbour and has trained her horse to do math sums!

Recreation Team Member Judy Atwood arranged this special visit in our beautiful gardens and Misty Powell, also from our Recreation Team, baked ginger snap cookies with her Residents to serve at the event.

We Celebrate Seniors!

Did you know that there is an annual day to celebrate seniors in Canada? National Seniors Day falls on October 1st and is an opportunity to recognize and honour the lives and contributions of our senior population. This year, the Team at Village at Smith Creek invited guests from Pine Acres Care Home to celebrate with them for a special time together.

Happy 100th Birthday to Adele!

Adele (Kornell) Northan began caring for seniors and others in the community in the 1950s, when she and her husband, a Baptist minister, started taking people who were leaving the hospital into their home. The Kornells went onto build a 14-bed facility on Pandosy, Still Waters Private Hospital and the Joseph Benjamin Residence, the Village at Smith Creek (formerly the Westside Care Centre) and Sun Pointe Village.
