About Trinity Village

Trinity Village is a not-for-profit charitable organization owned by Lutheran Homes Kitchener- Waterloo, a ministry of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Comprised of the Terraces, the Studios, the Care Centre, and the Adult Day Program, Trinity Village is designed to offer progressive stages of living and specialized care.


At Trinity Village, our mission is to be a caring community that values and fosters the worth and lifestyle of all.


The Grand Parade is our biggest annual fundraising event we participate in. It is a fundraising walk for those who live, work, visit, and are friends of Trinity Village.


For the past 2 years, we have been fundraising to purchase smart technology, which includes; the purchase and installation of smart TVs, wall mounts, and Wi-Fi access to all rooms across the Trinity Village community.


This project's purpose is to: To reduce loneliness and boredom, help connect with family and friends and offer more person-centered programming based on individual interests and language.


This technology will:

-Improve engagement through the access of activity schedules, menus, community photos, & live stream events

- Allow for unlimited virtual visits, and live stream family events/celebrations celebrations.

-Will customize individuals' music interests, faith based and recreation programming desires and much more!
