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; purchase and installation of TVs, wall mounts, Sirona.tv set top boxes 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 interest and language.

The implementation of the Sirona.tv technology will:

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

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

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

We're better together!
