About Assisted Living Services
NIGGV’s Assisted Living Program (St. Catharines site) provides physical assistance to seniors so they can carry out their activities of daily living and remain independent for as long as possible. Those who are eligible for services help determine what assistance is required, how it should be provided, and when it is needed. Services are provided by Personal Support Workers (PSWs).
Funding for the Assisted Living Program is provided to NIGGV by the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) and is for seniors residing in rental or life lease units at NIGGV, St. Catharines site.

- personal grooming and hygiene
- bathing or showering
