Smart Development is focused on providing culturally competent services to help make the aging transitions for their seniors as smooth as possible.
Throughout the COVID19 pandemic, Smart Development was able to provide daily check-ins making sure that their community members were safe at home and attempted to combat the loneliness that many seniors felt. With the McGregor grant, Smart Development is able to have specific and holistic care for their senior community, on top of being able to maintain staff to help seniors navigate life.
