Information from their website:
Representing 11 municipalities and with over 100 dedicated staff, the Grande Spirit Foundation provides reasonably priced housing, quality care, and dignity to seniors and families.
The Grande Spirit Foundation was formed in 1960, although its roots go back to just after the Second World War. The municipal leaders of the region decided that a home for the Senior Citizens of the area was needed and in 1949 the first home was built.
