Queen of Peace Residence

At Queen of Peace, quality care is provided to 80 elderly Residents (60+ years old) who are without financial means, family or social support.

Many seniors come to Queen of Peace as independent residents residing in subsidized apartments on the 4th and 5th floors.

As their skills decline and they require more assistance, they can move to a floor where an appropriate level of skilled nursing care is provided.

The continuum of services permits a sense of security throughout life. Once a senior Resident comes to Queen of Peace, they have a home for the remainder of their years.
