Cheshire Homes of London

Cheshire Homes of London

Cheshire is a non-profit, government funded organization that has been providing services to adults with significant physical disabilities to live actively, independently and with dignity in their own community since 1979. In 2010 we began our Seniors Supports for Daily Living program.

We provide supportive housing and attendant outreach services to London and the five surrounding counties: Elgin, Middlesex, Huron, Oxford and Perth.

Our Mission:

To Support Individuals with physical disabilities and frail seniors to live independently in their communities through the provision of personal support services that:

Are mutually respectful and value the contributions of all;
Enable individual responsibility and self-determination;
Promote inclusion and choice; and
Facilitate creative leadership and community development.
