- Developing a Seniors’ Services Hub on the Peel Manor site
Peel Manor, the oldest of the Region’s five long term care homes, has provided care and support to residents for more than 100 years.
A two-storey centre
Peel Manor is a two-storey centre with a number of resident home areas. Each area has its own dining room.
The centre has spacious hallways and numerous activity rooms.
Peel Manor has several beautiful enclosed gardens maintained by volunteers. Several areas have been adopted by our residents’ families who take care of the gardens when they visit.
Peel Manor — originally called the County of Peel House of Industry and Refuge — was built in 1898. It was run by a keeper, a matron and a physician. In its first year it housed 12 people: 10 men and two women.
