The Simcoe Village Campus will have a variety of housing types to ensure that many older adults are able to age-in-place in a comfortable, safe, and healthy environment that provides them with many of the amenities they require. Amenties in the Campus potentially include a hair salon, doctors' office, pharmacy, physiotherapy, convenience store, and dental. A Bistro/Café will be operated serving campus residents and the community at large.
