Metis Local 1990 looking to expand Elder Caring Shelter

Metis Local 1990 is looking to expand their services with their Elder Caring Shelter. Vice President Walter Andreef says they have noticed a large amount of residents that are in need of a facility like this but they only have limited space.

They are looking at a new facility in the Smith subdivision that would allow them to up their beds from about 16 to 26.

“What we have been doing over the last year is looking to expand. We would like to create a space for more elders to go. We found through various studies that say there are many seniors in the community that may not have a lot of money.”

Andreef says they don’t have a cost estimate for the proposed 4 story building.

“We put together a business plan with volunteers and support staff to develop that concept.”

A new project manager is needed and the organization hopes that the city will help them lock down that position.

Although the group has limited space, Andreef says they set themselves apart from other homes like theirs. The elders that utilize the home will also take part in chores.

“We think it really adds value and care to the caring shelter. Everybody cares for the caring shelter just as we care for them.”

On top of the new facility, the group would also like to be part of the conversation when it comes to the Inter-municipal Collaboration Framework.
