Our mission at Nucleus Independent Living is to support adults to live independently at home by providing caring and dependable service.
Nucleus was incorporated in 1983 as a charitable, non-profit organization that now serves the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network region and some areas of Toronto. We excel in providing reliable attendant services that enable seniors and persons with physical disabilities to remain living safely and independently in their own homes. Our services encompass supports for daily living, including a 24-hour mobile support service, attendant services in the home, school or at work, supportive housing for adults with physical disabilities and temporary in home relief for primary caregivers through the Caregiver Recharge Program.
Our growing organization is accredited by CARF Canada and our programs have been recognized by two Minister’s Medals, two 3M National Awards and regional awards for quality. Nucleus is skilfully governed by a highly motivated and talented Board of Directors that oversees a budget of more than $14 million.
