S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K.Y. Lee Seniors Care Home

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Multi-Level Care Society manages the Simon K.Y. Lee Seniors Care Home, which is named in honour of its key supporter, Mr. Simon K.Y. Lee. This long-term care facility offers culturally-appropriate professional care and supervision to adults in a supportive and secure environment.

Services are available to people with complex care needs, and physical and/or mental health conditions who cannot live safely and independently at home. The Care Home was opened on September 24, 2001.
