St. Therese Villa
St. Therese Villa is a friendly, caring designated supportive living community. We provide services tailored to your needs. We are one of the few sites where you can live as a couple, even if you need different levels of care.
We offer interpretive services for residents and families who prefer to communicate in a language other than English. You may request services in person, through live video or over the phone.
To arrange for an interpreter, speak to a member of your care team.
Our team offers spiritual care services to our residents and families, regardless of faith, background or tradition. We honour each person’s wishes and unique journey.
Our chaplain is on-site to respond to a wide range of needs. They may:
- support you with end-of-life concerns, including ceremonies, memorial planning and decision-making
- help you explore meaning and purpose in life
- support you during grief and loss
- explore ethical concerns facing residents and staff
- provide religious care (prayer, requests for sacraments or visits from faith leaders)
- help you explore your understanding of God or the Divine
- arrange a quiet space for you in the chapel
Two days per week and on-call
Ask a member of your care team to connect you with our chaplain.

Stop the spread of germs
- For the safety of our patients and residents, we encourage you to clean your hands when you visit. See A Guide to Clean Hands for information on protecting yourself and your loved ones.
- If you’re sick, wait and visit your loved one when you’re feeling better. If you must visit and you’re coughing or sneezing, consider wearing a mask to protect your loved one.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then discard the tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow.
- Clean your hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer, especially after coughing or sneezing.
We have limited free visitor parking, including accessible stalls, in the parking lot in front of the building or on the street. Please don’t park in the marked fire access areas.
