Georgian Village and Georgian Manor Overview

“Access to appropriate housing, healthcare and quality of life is vital in creating and sustaining strong and healthy communities. Georgian Village marks a significant enhancement of our services for seniors and reinforces our commitment to excellence in all aspects of their well-being.” - Cal Patterson, Warden, County of Simcoe.

Prior to 2006, the County of Simcoe began planning for the redevelopment and transformation of the existing 107 beds of Georgian Manor into an “A” level home to meet the design standards of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.  Planning revealed it was more cost-effective to build a new long term care home and, in response to growing needs of our senior community, the County of Simcoe partnered with the federal and provincial government to offer a vibrant, barrier-free, caring campus community with access to a wide variety of programs and services promoting wellness and active lifestyles. In 2013 the new Georgian Village campus opened its doors.

Georgian Village offers individuals 60+ the opportunity to age in place by providing a choice of housing and care options to enhance health and vitality.   The campus is designed to provide a scope of options to match senior lifestyles, preferences and needs:

Georgian Manor                        Long Term Care Home -138 LTC beds and 5 convalescent beds

Georgian Residences               42 Assisted Living rental apartments (studio or 1 bedroom)

Georgian Manor Long Term Care Home - History and Development

Georgian Manor is a fully accredited Long Term Care Home. Through the acquisition of the vacant General Hospital property Georgian Manor was first established in the town of Penetanguishene by the County of Simcoe. Penetanguishene General Hospital had just completed the construction of a new facility and their original building, a large old home, was no longer needed. The County, in 1957, added a two level addition to the old hospital to accommodate 52 senior citizens. The first resident was admitted to the Manor on July 1, 1957.

It was soon realized that the demand for seniors' accommodation was greater than the supply. In 1961, the original hospital portion of the home was replaced by a new service component, kitchen, laundry, dining room, activity space, and a bedroom wing to accommodate an additional 45 seniors. Space was also provided for live-in accommodation for 5 staff persons.

In 1971, a second addition was completed. This provided a large auditorium, chapel, library, games and craft room, as well as a "Senior Citizens Centre" for the use of Manor residents, together with local senior citizens organizations. Next, approval was received to convert the staff accommodation to residential accommodation for four.  With this change, the Manor reached occupancy of 105

In the late 1980's approval was given, with an extensive retrofit to add 2 more respite or short stay beds to increase the Manor's occupancy to 107. This retrofit was officially completed in July 1990. The main dining room was enlarged, a maintenance shop and expanded laundry facilities were added. A fifth floor was added providing staff facilities, storage and a link to Penetanguishene General Hospital (PGH). The link to PGH provided the residents with easy access to their laboratory and diagnostic services. In return, PGH was able to utilize the auditorium for larger meetings.

In 2000, a Georgian Manor feasibility study was completed and revised in 2004.   In 2006, the County of Simcoe obtained approval for redevelopment of Georgian Manor to meet the 1998 Design Standards for the existing 107 beds classified at a “B” level of structural compliance.  It was determined that it would be more cost-effective to build a brand new home.   In 2009-2010, the County received funding approval from Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing and the Ministry of Health & Long Term Care as well as approval to build 36 additional beds from North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integrated Networks.  Construction of the Georgian Village campus began with the ground breaking in 2011.  

Georgian Village Campus opened its doors to its first long-term care residents on Tuesday, October 15, 2013.   Georgian Village is designed to promote active lifestyles for all residents as well as offer unique support services and amenities.  Please visit georgianvillage.ca to learn more about the campus and what it has to offer.

The new Georgian Manor Long Term Care Home has state-of-the-art, sunlit beds with well appointed central dining and activity rooms, rooftop gardens, tub/spa and shower rooms, quiet family rooms, wellness centre, library and resource centre and much.  Georgian Manor has a long track record of excellent care and service and boasts proudly of being an integral part of the community and of the community being an integral part of Georgian Manor. Together, the 130 registered volunteers and our specialized care-givers will make the new facility a comfortable and cosy environment for our valued residents.
