St. Clair O’Connor Community Inc. is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to developing a safe and caring environment for gracefully aging seniors. SCOC as it’s affectionately known is an intergenerational community for families both young and older that focuses on creating a safe and encouraging place in a congregated setting.
While being able to enjoy an intimate and private living existence, seniors at SCOC are also provided with many resources to engage with the community and foster relationships with their fellow residents as well as the staff.
A Mennonite Project
Effective March 15, 2020, the St. Clair O’Connor Community Long Term Care Home and all of its independent seniors’ apartments are closed to outside visitation.
We are encouraging our Residents to “shelter in place” and avoid contact with each other as much as possible.
We understand that this is an emotional time for everyone and are doing our outmost to keep our community safe.
Communication in these times is also extremely important so we have created a COVID-19 portal to keep you informed as to what we are doing in our community to ensure its safety and we encourage you to visit it regularly.
Senior's Social Health
The program includes three (3) information sessions on reducing the risk of dementia, five(5) sessions of Chair Yoga, and four(4) sessions on indoor watering plants.
Participants who attend all the sessions will be offered $25 in appreciation for their participation.
Please sign up at reception if you are interested before September 28th.

Café & Convenience Store
The Café has been running successfully thanks to the dedication and commitment of our helpful volunteers that take the time to care for it every day.
You will find all the basics including freshly served food, coffee, sandwiches, and soups straight from our SCOC kitchen. Residents, staff and visitors from outside our community frequent the store for its selection of groceries, cards, books and gifts. It’s all about the convenience of being able to purchase them so close to home and work.
