The Thompson Local News


If you’re 55 years old plus, Lions Manor 55 can provide a more carefree and secure environment for you as you age.   Penny Byer, a member of the manor’s board describes it here.

“Lions Manor 55 is a housing cooperative for people that are 55 and older.  And it’s going to be designed for what we call an ‘aging in place” concept.  As you get older, maybe  a little arthritis sets in, maybe you start needed a walker, maybe you need the wider doorways, the levered handles, that sort of thing.  That’s all being designed into this property.”

The building will have 30 units.  At this point 11 are spoken for but the board is hoping to have at least 5 more units committed to by January 31st so the project can begin this spring.   Byer explains why it’s so important to get more people to step forward and commit to the project.

“One of the things that we have to satisfy with our lender is to show that there’s sufficient interest in these 30 units.  And to do that we have to have these $500 deposits.  We have to have more than half. We’re just under the halfway mark.  Some people are interested but they’re reluctant to give that $500 deposit - even though it’s refundable - because they like to see that shovel in the ground.”

To see the plans or get more information about Lions Manor 55, contact Leanne Grenier at 677-0768 or email thompsonhousingagency@tnrc.ca.
