• “I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to place family members here. It is with the knowledge that they are happy in their “home”, well cared for, and treated with dignity and respect, that I can return from visits secure in the belief they are in the best place. This is one less stress daily facing a caregiver, and I thank Idlewyld Manor and the staff for providing this relief.”
    ~ Betty Marshall
  • “I chose Idlewyld Manor to live because my safety was compromised. I have ALS and needed the help. The staff here are very caring for me and my health care needs. The gardens are beautiful, and they have great services and wonderful entertainment for us including birthdays and happy hours!”
    ~ Marnie Feick (Resident Council President)

Thrive Group

We serve over 600 clients with a staff of 285. Our wait list is over 800 people. Our roots stem from the Hamilton Cerebral Palsy Parent Council, but we have grown substantially over the past three decades to help individuals not only with cerebral palsy but with any disability, which may include muscular dystrophy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, developmental delay, brain injury, spina bifida, visual impairment, etc. Opening in Binbrook in 1978 with a congregate setting home for 35 adults with physical disablities, we expanded to include seven housing projects, some of which have short-term rental units. AbleLiving also provides outreach services in clients’ homes, including both attendant and homemaking services. Our new ReCharge programme offers in-home respite in the Mississauga / Halton regions which enables an individual's regular caregiver an opportunity to take a much needed break from their duties.
