For 45 years, the Dundas Manor Long-Term Care Home in Winchester has helped to keep families together – even though they are living apart due to health challenges. It is the only long-term care home in Dundas County and is an essential part of our local healthcare system. Now, it’s time for a new Dundas Manor.
Magic happens at Dundas Manor every day. With your help, the magic will continue in a brand-new home.
Dundas Manor inspires happiness and joy. But our building does not.
Dundas Manor is a place of joy and happiness, jokes, prayers, and peace. It is filled with activities, books, exercise, music, and balloon fights. Life at Dundas Manor is all about living – with care and compassion. From venturing out to local fairs to a toe-tapping fiddler in the living room, there is always something happening.
Today, Dundas Manor is warm and cozy – but also crowded and dated. It was built in 1978 for 60 residents. While 38 beds were added over the years, no other areas were expanded. The dining space is so limited that some residents literally eat their meals in the hallway. Staff members work in offices that used to be closets. Two people can barely pass by one another in the narrow hallways. The building is deteriorating. It’s time for a brand new, larger, safe, and comfortable home.
The new Dundas Manor will have four resident home areas, called Homesteads. Each one will have a wonderful gathering space as well as beautiful outdoor gardens nearby. Hallway dining will be a thing of the past as there will be four large, bright dining rooms with enough space for everyone. Rooms in the new home will have only one or two residents – and everyone will have a window.
Current and future residents – and our local communities – rely on Dundas Manor to provide 24/7 care, 365 days a year. We are ready to keep caring for them in a new, safe Dundas Manor. They deserve nothing less.
We’re on our way. Join the dream!
We are a community that looks out for each other. We push cars out of snowbanks in the winter. Lend a hand fixing a lawn mower. Buy coffee for the person in line behind us. Offer support in times of need. Coming together to build the new Dundas Manor is no different.
The estimated cost of the new building is $63 million. The provincial government is providing approximately $45 million. Our campaign goal is $18 million. And we’re well on our way! To date, more than $11.1 million has been donated by our generous community.
Can you help? There are many ways you can give to turn this dream into a reality. There are also many ways that you can be recognized for your generous gift.
