A few words
Our story starts way back.
Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre first opened their doors in 1962. Today, it continues to be a supportive living and learning facility which serves approximately 215 adults and youth.
Over 600 professional and support staff provide a high standard of quality care and service delivery to our clients. All clients participate in an individualized program plan (IPP) to identify individual needs and abilities so that programs and activities enhance care, independence, health, social and daily living skills, and learning.
Our objective is to assist these individuals to attain their dreams and independence as community members. Clients develop their potential through opportunities to participate in a choice of supportive living, learning, social and working environments both in-center and in the community.
Facilitating opportunities for the individuals we serve to fulfill their aspirations and responsibilities as valued community members.
Meaningful lives. Inclusive communities.
