Our Redevelopment

Our Past and Our Future

 

Dundas Manor opened on April 5, 1978, with 60 beds. Three additions have brought the home up to 98 beds. On February 1, 2012, Rural Healthcare Innovations (RHI) purchased Dundas Manor from the Alguire family. RHI is the board of directors which oversees the home.

 

On April 28, 2015, Dundas Manor applied to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for approval to build a new home. Once approved, construction is expected to take two years.

 

Redevelopment Updates


  • For more than four years, the Board of Directors has been working closely with residents, families, staff members and the local community to plan for the new Dundas Manor. Board members have also met with representatives from the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), Ministry of Health, Office of the Minister of Health, the Office of the Premier, our MPP and many locally elected officials. 

  • At meetings in the summer of 2016, Barry Hobin Architects shared preliminary drawings with residents, families, and staff. The design team includes architects, planners and a gerontologist with expertise in senior-friendly planning. Dundas Manor is working with The Grove Long-Term Care Home in Arnprior to share expertise and costs.

  • The new Dundas Manor will transform the look and feel of the residence to create a truly home-like environment where we can also welcome thirty additional residents. Preliminary designs are complete, and the new home will improve quality of life with more accessible space, more efficient preparation areas, wider halls, and larger windows. Outdated four-bed units will change to two residents per room. As well, the new home will address the need for greater individualized and resident-directed care.
