Region Approves Plan To Demolish Old Long-Term Care Facility In Brampton
The region just announced that they will be demolishing the Peel Manor and building a new long-term care village in Brampton.
The Region of Peel is moving ahead with a plan to build a new Seniors Health and Wellness Village at Peel Manor.
Peel Manor is a long-term care home since 1898. It is being redeveloped into a modern facility in a new building, which will offer long-term care with 177 beds, an enhanced Adult Day Services program with a capacity for up to 100 clients a day, an eight-bed short-stay unit for overnight respite care, and a seniors-focused service hub that will support the delivery of integrated care.
The new Seniors Health and Wellness Village at Peel Manor will be built beside the current building at 525 Main Street North.
Construction will begin this year and end in 2021. The approved budgeted cost is $115.6 million. Once the building is completed, the people living in the current Peel Manor can move to the new facility.
The current building will be demolished to make way for a new community park space that will be completed in 2022.
“We have made an important investment in long term care and seniors. With this new Seniors Health and Wellness Village, we can continue to depend on Peel Manor to deliver the high level of care that meets the changing needs of our growing city,” says Regional Councillor Paul Vicente.
“We value the work that the Region of Peel does at Peel Manor, including the incredible work of the Adult Day Services program. The success of such a program will now be expanded as part of the Wellness Village. It will provide the preventative and flexible support that our seniors need to help in their independence and provide opportunities to socialize,” says Regional Councillor Rowena Santos.
