Lakeside Long-Term Care Centre opened in 2004 to provide exceptional 24-hour care for individuals in a residential setting.

As people age, illness, frailty or disability may make it impossible for them to live independently. Sometimes 24-hour nursing and personal care are required. Long-term care may be the best option.

We help people maintain their mental and physical well-being so that they have the best possible quality of life.

Our nursing and personal care staff provides support for residents in all activities of daily living, as they need it. Our goal is to help individuals live as independently and as safely as possible. With that in mind, our care also includes physiotherapy and other therapeutic programs. Recreational programs provide individuals with opportunities to stay active and socialize.

We provide outstanding care through a health care team that includes nurses, health care aides, activity and therapy staff, a social worker and dietary specialists.

Lakeside Long-Term Care Centre is operated by Extendicare (Canada) Inc., under a contract with UHN.
