Heritage Place Accessibility Policy

Heritage Place is dedicated to respecting the diverse needs of persons with disabilities and promoting the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality of opportunity for all individuals. The organization seeks to uphold the highest standards of accessible customer service through preventing, identifying and removing barriers that impede the ability of persons with disabilities to access our services.

 

In this policy “customers” are defined as residents, family members, guests from the community and visitors.

  • The provision of care and services to persons with disabilities;

  • Staff and volunteer training regarding interacting with persons with disabilities;

  • The use of assistive devices by persons with disabilities;

  • The use of service animals by persons with disabilities;

  • The use of support persons by individuals with disabilities;
