Vision Statement

"Supporting dignified independent living for the elderly"

Statement of Purpose

"To provide a high quality, diverse and non-institutional living environment a place where residents can enjoy the safety and security of medical, domestic and social support systems that are designed to uphold but not intrude upon their need and desire for independence.

To ensure that these facilities are available to residents with as wide a range of life experiences and income levels as possible."

Ropata Lodge offers a 'assisted living' experience within a centrally located apartment complex.

Independence is cherished and supported, with family and friends welcome at all hours. A 'rest-assured' feeling is made possible by the blend of home and 24 hour professional care
