In June 2021, County Council approved a plan to proceed with a significant redevelopment of Simcoe Manor and Village in Beeton into a leading long term care and seniors services campus, and further meet the needs of seniors in southern Simcoe County. The campus will provide additional long term care beds, supportive seniors housing units and programs, an expanded continuum of care and living options, and a wide range of community services for older adults in one convenient location, allowing residents to age in place and receive the services and support they need as their care requirements change. Help us make Simcoe Village a reality.
About Simcoe Manor
Simcoe Manor, home for the aged, is located on the site of the original House of Refuge officially opened by the County of Simcoe in 1898 to provide accommodation, support and supervision for citizens of any age whose social or medical problems made it difficult for them to reside in their respective communities. In 1899, 42 males and 6 females resided at the Home, the oldest being 100 years old and the youngest 7 years old. A 47 bed care wing and staff accommodations were added to the original building in 1952 and the name was changed to Simcoe Manor Home for the Aged.
For many years the home operated a 250 acre farm. The farm was sold in 1965 leaving the home on 8 acres of land.
In 1973, the original House of Refuge was demolished. The new three level addition which replaced it provided expanded public areas, a swimming pool and semi-private rooms with adjoining washrooms. Accommodation was provided for 158 residents.
In April 1992, a major redevelopment of Simcoe Manor was initiated. The project involved a total renovation of the Home to provide primarily private rooms with en-suite washrooms, a special care unit for the cognitively impaired and a 100 percent barrier free environment. The renovated Home accommodates 126 residents and the new "Simcoe Village" consists of 32 self contained supportive living apartment units. Official Opening Ceremonies were held June 11, 1994.
The programs and services of the Manor are regulated by the Residential Services Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Health. The Manor is "accredited" by Accreditation Canada and is a full member of the Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors.
