WHAT IS THE HOUSE OF KIN?
The House of Kin prides itself on being able to provide a home away from home experience, at a low cost for people coming into Sudbury to use our medical services. We provide a clean, safe, caring environment for our guests. There are security cameras inside and outside of the facility to ensure maximum safety for our guests, staff and their belongings. We have 32 rooms available to be booked, and all are cleaned daily for the duration of our guest's stay. Some of the available rooms have two (2) twin beds, some have two (2) double beds, and we even have a family room with three (3) double beds. In each of our rooms, guests will find a flat screen television with cable, and a refrigerator where guests can keep groceries to prepare their own meals.
One of the most unique features of the House of Kin is our lounge area, which was completely renovated in 2017, made possible by an anonymous donation. The lounge features a kitchen and two (2) food prep areas where guests can prepare their own meals. Each prep area is outfitted with a toaster oven, a toaster, a microwave, and there is also an electric frying pan. There are also dishes that our guests can use at their own convenience, a dishwasher, and fresh coffee made throughout the day at no charge.
There is a fridge and cupboards in the lounge containing food that has been donated by other institutions as well as by other guests, that may be used if necessary as well. The lounge also has two (2) fully stocked vending machines, a flat screen television, DVD player, fireplace, reclining chairs, reclining love seat and a rocking chair. We recently added a beautiful private dining area for our guests to enjoy a meal alone or with their loved ones This area provides guests with a place to sit and socialize with other guests who are going through similar situations and hardships. It allows them to relate their experiences and this is a known way to help with stress and emotions during difficult times.
The House of Kin is centrally located, and is within minutes of drive time to the hospital and cancer research centre. We are also within walking distance of several grocery stores, clinics, drug stores and pharmacies, Tim Horton's, and many restaurants. We even have a restaurant in the same building as the House of Kin; Tommy's Not Here is located just down the stairs at our facility.
The staff at the House of Kin are considered one of our greatest assets. It is their nature to be kind hearted, considerate, compassionate, and willing to listen to and talk with guests and their families. They are ready to help with anything the guests may need to accommodate them, even if it's just a few minutes to chat.
