Tall Pines — one of our newest long-term care centres — is just steps away from the new Brampton Civic Hospital.
Tall Pines is a new generation long-term care centre featuring large rooms and hallways, recreational rooms and spas.
Tall Pines residents have individual maple and glass memory boxes located outside their bedrooms. We encourage residents to display their memorable items such as photographs and souvenirs in the box.
Tall Pines features six home areas, each with its own comfortable and secure dining and recreational space. There’s also plenty of room for personal items in Tall Pines’ spacious bedrooms.
Tall Pines’ two fully enclosed garden courtyards — Sunnylea and Flowertown — can be seen from inside and are easy to get to from the resident home areas on the first floor.
Both courtyards promote nature, use of the outdoors and horticultural therapy. Their therapeutic gardens and wandering paths offer residents and visitors the opportunity to relax and enjoy the outdoors during the warmer months.
Each resident home area at Tall Pines has an attractive view of an enclosed garden. Home areas on the ground floor have a solarium with direct access to the courtyard, while residents living on the second and third floors enjoy relaxing on a large outdoor terrace.
Chinguacousy Garden Club
Tall Pines is well-known in the community through its established partnership with the Chinguacousy Garden Club.
Volunteers from the Chinguacousy Garden Club visit the centre every month to engage residents in a variety of stimulating activities such as working hands-on in the gardens and making dried flower arrangements.
Tall Pines, in partnership with the City of Brampton, participates in the national Communities in Bloom competition every year.
Tall Pines has also partnered with other local organizations such as the St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog program, Girl Guides, Optimist Club, choir, dance and children groups and many local entertainers.
Tall Pines was built on land that originally belonged to the Mississauga Native Peoples. It was sold to the Crown in the early 1800s. The original land in the Township was known for its tall pines, which were cleared to develop farmland.
