Residential Services

Meta Centre operates 21 homes that are:

  • Comfortable & family-like
  • Well maintained and spacious
  • Offer personal privacy and social engagement
  • Staffed to support the variable needs of our residents in the GTA.

Each of our homes offer individuals the opportunity to pursue personal interests without unwanted or unwarranted intrusion from others.  Meta Centre cares for and maintains the personal property of its residents with storage space for clothing and possessions.

Individual bedrooms have an exterior window and coverings, and furnished with appropriately sized bed, mattress, and bedding according to season and weather.

Nutritional needs and meal preparations are based on the Canadian Food Guide and recognize the cultural diversities of individuals.  Residents participate in cooking, baking and upkeep of their home to enhance living skills and encourage a sense of responsibility and ownership.

All repairs to our buildings are professionally managed and completed as sanctioned by municipal and provincial building code stipulations.  Measures and vigilance to minimize and manage any risks to the health and safety of residents and staff are closely monitored.

Safety and cleanliness of the homes are a priority.  Each home has a recreation area; and exits marked and kept clear at all times.  Appliances and furnishings are kept clean and in good condition.  Hazardous household products are stored and used safely.
