Live Here peopleCare AR Goudie

AR Goudie Long-Term Care Home is located in Kitchener, Ontario. The original building was established in 1962 and named after Arthur Russel Goudie, a local department store owner who made a significant donation towards construction costs. The existing Home was rebuilt on the same site in 1993 and became a part of the peopleCare family in January 2013. Mrs. Goudie’s teacup collection is still used by Residents in our Home today.

The 80-bed Home offers private and basic accommodations with each room tastefully decorated and furnished. Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms with personal items and favourite pieces of furniture.

The Home is made up of three home areas, including one secure area specifically designed for residents with varying degrees of dementia. The Home features spacious lounges for social interactions with family and friends. The expansive “town square” is centrally located with music, games, fitness, a café and ample space for relaxing visits with family and friends. Daily activities provide enhanced programming for all residents in both small and large group settings.
