A name says a lot about a person or a place. The name Suomi-Koti simply means ‘Finnish Home’, but both of these words evoke an abundance of traditions, warmth and familiarity for different people, all of which are beautifully reflected in the design, atmosphere and lifestyle at this seniors residence and Long-Term Care Home.
Suomi-Koti is located in the heart of Toronto’s picturesque Leaside neighbourhood, surrounded by shops, services and quiet, tree-lined residential streets. It is a non-profit, Seniors Centre dedicated to providing excellence in compassionate multi-level care and services, housing and activities for the Finnish community. And not only for Finns: a number of Estonians are residents of Suomi-Koti.
At Suomi-Koti, the residents’ comfort and care come first, 24-hours a day. Suomi-Koti receives funding from the Ministry of Health and LTC but it is not enough to cover the cost of providing care over and above minimum standards. This is why they have a very active fundraising program, organizing garage sales, bake sales, walk-a-thons and more. One of the biggest events is the annual bowling fundraiser which will take place March 28th, 2015. Over the years, the event has raised over $200,000 for Suomi-Koti.
