Welcome to The Ontario Finnish Resthome
OFRA is a non-profit charitable organization whose fundamental goals are to provide housing facilities with specified levels of care (independent living, enhanced living, extended nursing care and social services) to seniors.
The Ontario Finnish Resthome Association is a unique campus consisting of multifaceted levels of care, offering a wide range of services and amenities in a beautiful setting.
Suomi Esti Maja (seniors apartments) Provides a warm atmosphere and clean surroundings to help each resident to feel comfortable and safe in their surroundings. Many activities are planned and residents can be as busy and involved as they desire or, they can just enjoy the company of others.
Kotitalo (assisted living) Residents bring furnishings and personal items to make their apartments “home.” The staff help with housekeeping and laundry and good meals are provided daily. Activities are planned to keep residents engaged and as busy and happy as possible. Independence is encouraged.
Mauno Kaihla Koti (nursing home) Our nursing home has ward, semi-private and private accommodation. Residents are encouraged to bring personal items to decorate their rooms to help with adjustment. Staff are friendly and helpful and try very hard to make each person feel comfortable and secure. Meals are provided with care and attention to special dietary needs.
