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 200 apartment tenants, supported by 800 staff and more than 350 volunteers.
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care makes 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 most progressive health centres in the province.
The Board of Directors has several committees:
- Audit and Risk Management Committee
- Executive Committee
- Governance Committee
- Quality of Life and Safety Committee
- Stakeholder and Community Relations Committee
The Perley Rideau Board is made up of qualified independent members and senior executives, some employed and some retired. Together, the Board has collective expertise in managing private sector corporations, overseeing various levels of government, and advising on matters related to health, seniors and Veterans.
Directors are expected to attend monthly Board meetings and one committee bi-monthly and one or two Saturday morning workshops during each year.
