Peel Manor Continues its Tradition of Caring
BRAMPTON, ON. (December 6, 2011) – On December 8, Peel Regional Council will discuss its 10-year capital plan, which includes its five long term care homes.
Of the five homes, Peel Manor is the oldest and the building infrastructure requires continuous effort to maintain service-level standards.
“Peel Manor is not for sale. Our plan is to continue serving our residents and families at a level that is consistent across all of our homes, and to ensure that we maintain a safe and healthy environment for our employees,” said Carolyn Clubine, Director, Peel Long Term Care. "For Peel Manor, it is appropriate to start planning for the future".
Peel Manor is located in the core of Brampton and is part of a campus that delivers community and health services to the aging population. These services include community support programs, such as Peel Manor Adult Day Service and Brampton Meals on Wheels. Nance Horwood provides specialized independent living for the senior population and Manorbridge is a 98-unit seniors apartment building. Also on the site are the Salvation Army Family Life Resource Centre and Cheshire Homes.
“Services to Peel’s aging population are important to Regional Council,” said Regional Chair Emil Kolb. “Council is proud of the services our five long term care homes provide, and Peel Manor is a significant part of the tradition of care in the Region and the community. Our goal is to study what we need to do for the long term to ensure the continued quality of services provided at Peel Manor.”
In separate memos to staff, residents and their families on November 21 — the day Regional Council received the budget package — Peel Long Term Care communicated the need to explore options for the Peel Manor building infrastructure.
The Region operates five long term care homes: Peel Manor and Tall Pines in the City of Brampton; Sheridan Villa and Malton Village in the City of Mississauga; and the Davis Centre in the Town of Caledon.
The Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated in 1974 on the principle that certain community and infrastructure services are most cost-effectively administered over a larger geographic area. The Region of Peel serves more than one million residents in the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon.
