The Harold & Grace Baker Centre
Since 1984, The Harold & Grace Baker Centre (“Baker Centre”) has provided accommodation, care, and services to Toronto’s senior population. This independent, not-for-profit retirement residence and long-term care home is managed by Revera Inc., a leading owner, operator, and investor in Canada’s senior living sector.
Until recently, in-house staff managed the organization’s website design and development needs. Going forward, they wanted to entrust a professional website company with this responsibility. Besides developing a modern new site that placed importance on accessibility, load times, and mobile responsiveness, they required ongoing assistance with website maintenance, updates, and search engine optimization (SEO) strategy.
While completing a Google search for a reputable website design company, the Baker Centre found Awesome Web Designs (AWD). Following a consultation meeting, they chose AWD to design and create a fresh new website that would be compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
