Perley Health is a unique and innovative community that empowers Seniors and Veterans to live life to the fullest. Home to more than 600 Seniors and Veterans in long-term care and in independent apartments, Perley Health is also a centre for research, education, and clinical and therapeutic services.

One of the largest and most progressive long-term care homes in Ontario, Perley Health also provides a growing number of clinical, therapeutic and recreational services to residents, tenants and people from across the region. Our Centre of Excellence in Frailty-Informed Care conducts and shares the practical research needed to improve care. Future caregivers come here to study and to acquire hands-on skills and experience. And more than 400 regular volunteers connect us closely with the community. Together, we improve the well-being of Canada’s aging population.

Perley Health is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors varying in number from 9 to 18 who help shape the future of one of the most progressive health centres in the province.
