How to Reach Us
Opening in 1969, King’s Meadow was the first community based group home in Nova Scotia. The home was originally purchased jointly by the Canadian Progress Club - Halifax and what is now the Canadian Association of Community Living. The Progress Club purchased the majestic property outright in 1972. The Canadian Progress Club- Halifax, working in conjunction with the Canadian Association for Community Living and the Nova Scotia Department of Social Services, opened the Kings Meadow home in 1969. In 1972 the Club assumed sole responsibility for the home.
Kings Meadow Residence is situated on nine acres of well-groomed, lightly wooded farmland near Windsor, Nova Scotia. It was the one-time estate of former Nova Scotia Lieutenant Governor, the late Dr. H.W Kendall. A magnificent structure, Kings Meadow's is home to nine adults with intellectual disabilities who are supported by a professional team of Residential Community Living Facilitators.
It offers residents the easy-going seclusion and privacy of a rural setting yet is within walking distance of all amenities and services of the town of Windsor. Kings Meadow has served as a model for similar facilities across Canada and over the years has acquired an enviable reputation for providing a warm and friendly environment for residents.
Kings Meadow is operated by a Volunteer board of directors comprised of members of the Progress Club, family and members from the local community.
Living life to the fullest is fundamental to our home at Kings Meadow. Residents are self-directive in their lifestyle choices. Our morals is based on the needs and desires of the resident. The folks determine the services they wish to receive.
The community of Windsor has been our supportive neighbour for over 45 years and for that we are truly grateful.
