The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre (Perley Rideau) has transformed itself into a Seniors Village while continuing to provide excellent care to our long-term residents. It is one of the largest seniors' care centres in Ontario with 250 veteran residents and 200 community residents, more than 100 new tenants, an increasing number of seniors being served in the community, 800 staff and 350 volunteers.
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care make available 50% of the approximate $55 million budget with Veterans Affairs Canada providing 15%, residents 23% and community services and other sources 12%.
The Perley Rideau is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors varying in number from 9 to 18 who help shape the future of one of the best centres in the province.
