The philosophy pushing the project MISSION




Return to VAX Mainpage

The principal objective of the company is to improve the "global" health of the resident-members.

To do this, Villa Alfred Xavier will offer specialized accommodations which will be affordable for the majority of retirees, those who do not qualify for subsidized housing programs and who do not have the "large revenues" to pay for such luxury (condos) by themselves.

Construction will implement recommendations of recent research reports which confirm the need for a healthy environment, flexible, and secure to make it possible for seniors to increase their health, as much on the physical plan as psychic, financial as well as spiritual and... an environment which will enable them to valorize themselves in the eyes of the general public, and to prove that it is not necessary that they be a burden on society.

V.A.X. will of course offer all the services of traditional residences, that is meals, maintenance of a landscaped environment, nursing assistance, domestic assistance, and others.

The design of the modules gives the message, unambiguously, that it is "...an accessible home, welcoming and secure... with elevators, approach ramps... of studios (room & board) including meals, and of apartments... (including kitchenette or kitchen with institutional equipment)... cordial and sunny... with pleasant dimensions and entirely adapted... with balconies..." and which includes "...accessible and open common spaces (dining room, activities rooms, reception area, laundry rooms, storage rooms, terraces and gardens)... and a secure, private and attractively landscaped external environment..." with "...circulation paths that respect privacy and encourage secure walks... and located near commonly used services..."3 such as hospital, shopping centers, bus routes and highway.
