Clients of OSCR enjoy a wide range of healthy living programs and on-site services that enable them to live their lives to the fullest.

OSCR assists hundreds of seniors annually to live as independently as possible.

OSCR is proud to be an award winning not-for-profit organization, having earned a 3-year accreditation through CARF International for Assisted Living and Home Community Services programs in 2012 and again in 2015.
