MARKET LIFE LEASE
Actual ownership and title of the Life Lease development remains in the name and protection of The Christian Home Association of Mount Hamilton (hereinafter referred to as Wellingstone). The owner of an individual Life Lease unit has the exclusive right to occupy the suite they select and to use the common facilities of the development as long as they desire or are able. When the resident or the estate wish to sell or transfer their Life Lease they receive the market value of their unit, similar to a home or condominium. Wellingstone will assist the resident or the estate in every way possible to find an eligible purchaser. Upon the transfer of the Life Lease Wellingstone will retain 5% of the selling price for the capital fund.

HISTORY OF THE HOME
Wellingstone Home is located at the southern end of Upper Wellington, on central Hamilton Mountain. Building a senior residence on the vacant lands around the Mt. Hamilton Christian Reformed church was an idea that first surfaced in 1976. It took some years for city services to be installed but in 1986 a 52 unit building was completed and residents began moving into one and two bedroom apartments. These apartments have enjoyed great success. A waiting list is testimony to the popularity of the apartments. Since building the original units this nonprofit organization has been able to purchase adjacent land on Stone Church Road making it possible for an additional 72 units to be built. The two buildings are connected allowing for one community. The home has a total of 124 units, plus guest rooms.

THE COMMUNITY
Wellingstone Home is ideally located. It is next to Bethel Gospel Tabernacle and the Mt. Hamilton Christian Reformed Church, within walking distance to the Canadian Reformed Church and within a few driving miles to churches of other denominations. The Wellington Nursing Home and emergency services are located directly across the street.
A bus stop is within a few steps of the home. Limeridge Mall and Mountain Plaza Mall are located a few miles away. Once a week a local grocery chain arranges for a door to door pickup by bus to a nearby mall that contains a large supermarket.
McMaster University, Mohawk College, Redeemer University College, Hamilton Place and many area churches are all within easy driving distance and offer a wide range of cultural events that include concerts, plays, and academic lectures.
