Georgian Village, our exciting new 60-plus senior’s campus in Penetanguishene, is officially open!

 

The new facility represents Council’s vision for the future of senior-care services and retirement living space in Simcoe County. It also demonstrates our leadership and commitment to meeting the needs of our aging population in Simcoe County for years to come.

 

Spanning across 20-acres, Georgian Village will house between 300-400 seniors including 143 fully accredited long-term care beds. This new facility will help to address wait time needs for long-term care beds across the County. 

 

This is a true achievement for our entire County, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the tremendous amount of partner support, community support and fundraising contributions we have received. The fundraising campaign is more than halfway to our $800,000 goal, and we encourage you to visit georgianvillage.ca to learn how you can support and donate.

 

Georgian Village places people first and promises a new kind of active and diverse community for our seniors. With a focus on aging in place, the campus offers a continuum of housing options that will help our seniors find the kind of care they need for whatever stage of life they are in. Once living on the campus, residents can transition through any of the five housing categories based on their service and care needs.

 

Those interested in purchasing units or learning more about the future of senior care in our region, should contact the County of Simcoe by visiting georgianvillage.ca or calling 705-528-4285.
