Live Here peopleCare Meaford

Redeveloped in 2022, Meaford Long-Term Care has been a part of the peopleCare family since 2017. The municipality of Meaford is situated on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay and is known for its apple orchards, agriculture and annual scarecrow festival.

The newly-built Home features four 32-bed areas for a total of 128 beds with private and basic accommodations. Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms with personal items and favourite pieces of furniture when they can be accommodated.

The entire Home is dementia friendly with resident Home areas built around a secure interior courtyard, giving residents safe access to outdoor space and increased freedom and mobility. The gardens have raised flower beds so residents don’t have to bend over or strain from a wheelchair to touch and smell. The Home also offers beautiful, airy spa rooms, a salon, dedicated space for multi-faith spiritual services and recreational kitchens in dining areas to support resident engagement and preferences.
