Who we are

The Benjamin and Vanda Treiser Maison Shalom offers exceptional and compassionate care, quality of life, and purpose for intellectually, physically and emotionally disabled individuals who do not have the ability to provide it for themselves. We pride ourselves on having created a traditional home with a non-institutional environment, which provides outstanding support and attention.

Our staff

Our devoted staff is present around the clock, and they are always ready to help.  Many of our staff members have been with us since Maison Shalom was founded.  Not only will our staff members help with day-to-day needs, but they also always go the extra mile whenever required.  For them, Maison Shalom is not just a job, it is a labour of love.  Without their hard work and dedication, Maison Shalom would never have become the loving home that it is today.  Many volunteers also come to visit the homes to help with arts and crafts programs, music and dance, and holiday and birthday celebrations.  Of course, their involvement enhances and enriches the lives of our Maison Shalom family.

Weekly activities

We aim to promote as much independence as possible in our residents.  They each have normal daily individual routines as well as roles within the larger Treiser Maison Shalom family, just as they would if they were living at home with parents and relatives.  Maison Shalom provides activities in its homes, as well as programs within the Jewish community.  Some residents attend school or day programs, while others work in part or full-time supported work environments.   We also plan fun activities such as bowling, swimming and going to the JCC.
