"The population of Peel is growing and aging, so there is a need for centres like Tall Pines. We are thankful to the provincial government for their financial contribution to build the new centre and for their commitment to long-term care services," said Regional Chair Emil Kolb.

Tall Pines is a state-of-the-art centre that has everything to make sure that its residents live in a safe environment, participate in a variety of interesting programs and remain active members of the diverse surrounding community.

"The Region of Peel has a rich history of providing care and services for adults with special needs in the Peel community. We are proud to add Tall Pines to the family of our three long-term care centres and continue our tradition of caring with compassion, respect and dedication," said Chief Administrative Officer Roger Maloney.

"Tall Pines is a beautiful centre, and the new space will add to the growing needs of our community. But it's the people who care for residents that make the difference. Their energy, passion and dedication are amazing and are well known in our community," said Mayor of Brampton Susan Fennell.

Tall Pines will accommodate 160 residents who will live in spacious and bright bedrooms. The new centre is divided into six home areas and there is a designated dining and recreational space in each area. In addition, residents will be able to spend time outdoors with family and friends or do some gardening in the summer in two beautifully landscaped secure courtyards.

The new centre is an integral part of Peel and Brampton communities. It will stay connected to them by providing numerous volunteer and learning opportunities, and promoting interaction between community organizations, residents and their families.

Tall Pines is scheduled to open in April 2004.

The Region of Peel has a tradition of caring for the older adults of the Peel community for more than 100 years. We operate three long-term care centres - The Davis Centre in Bolton, Peel Manor in Brampton, and Sheridan Villa in Mississauga. Tall Pines and Malton Village are the newest long-term care centres, which will open in 2004. At our centres, residents experience a rich quality of life through personalized care, stimulating activities and an ongoing connection with the diverse communities in Peel.

All of our centres operate in accordance and compliance with the relevant legislation of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the policies of the Region of Peel. Our long-term care centres are accredited by the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation.
