Arirang Becomes the Purchaser of Rose of Sharon LTC

Arirang Age-Friendly Community Centre (Arirang) has agreed with RYKKA Care Centres LP to become the purchaser of the Rose of Sharon Korean Long-Term Care Home in Toronto. After nearly a decade of efforts to ensure the ownership of the Rose of Sharon in the Korean community, Arirang is leading the effort to protect the first-ever LTC home in Canada that provides culturally-specific care to Korean seniors.

What Purchasing Rose of Sharon Means for Our Community

Arirang’s vision for the Toronto-Korean community does not end with securing ownership – it is simply the first step towards it. Our next long-term goal is to procure and provide additional beds so that more seniors and their families can be supported in the Korean community.

New Opportunities for Our Community

This will give Arirang the means and opportunity to provide more community services such as Meals on Wheels, senior drop-in centres, expand out to retirement homes, and more.  We dream of Korean seniors having active lifestyle and enjoying new friends they meet at a resort style like senior community centre.  This gives family care givers assurance that their loved ones are well taken care of and provide peace of mind.

Our Fundraising Goal & Status

We need your help to make this dream come true. 

We need everyone in our community to come together and support this cause.  We call upon all families to donate.


Our minimum target is $4.5 million

Period:  by the end of May 2021
