We’re pleased to share that The Alzheimer Society Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (Alzheimer Society Kingston) now officially calls PVI home! As of August 8th, 2023, Alzheimer Society Kingston’s operations and services will be provided out of its new office space located in the Providence Motherhouse at PVI.
The Alzheimer Society Kingston is the first organization to establish a presence here at PVI. With its roots firmly planted in delivering essential support to individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, the Society’s move to Providence Village is a testament to its commitment to enhancing the lives of the vulnerable in the Kingston community.
“We had outgrown our previous office space when the announcement came in 2017 that the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul were going to establish a community hub to serve our vulnerable population – we knew instantly that we had to be part of their community,” said Vicki Poffley, Executive Director, Alzheimer Society Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. “Moving into Providence Village has allowed us to expand our operations and increase our services. We couldn’t be more pleased to be a part of such a legacy in our community.”
“We’re thrilled to embark on this new chapter, as the Alzheimer Society of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington moves to Providence Village—a vibrant location that offers boundless opportunities,” shared Chris Mackey, Chair, Board of Directors, Alzheimer Society Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. “The features of the new location create a space that is not only bright and cheerful, but also fosters an environment of inspiration and tranquility, perfectly suited for the compassionate work we do. With ample space for our programs and services, serene walking paths through the beautiful grounds, and the chance to collaborate closely with fellow not-for-profit tenants, our vision for impact takes on an exciting new dimension. We can’t wait to continue our vital mission in this enriched setting at Providence Village.”
“We are honoured that the Alzheimer Society Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington chose to join the Providence Village community and make the Village their new home,” added Laurie French, President & CEO, Providence Village Inc. “Their unwavering dedication to enhancing the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia perfectly aligns with our mission of fostering hope and wellbeing within our community. Their presence at PVI will contribute to the Sisters’ vision of creating a community hub of services to make a meaningful difference in the lives of vulnerable populations in Kingston. I am particularly grateful for them taking the leap as we enter a busy phase of construction in the Village.”
The Alzheimer Society Kingston looks forward to extending a warm welcome to the community within its rejuvenated setting at Providence Village. As the organization embarks on this transformative journey, it remains dedicated to its vital role in supporting and empowering individuals facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
