Two new long-term care homes coming to Oakville

OAKVILLE, ONT.—The Ontario government is building two new long-term care homes in Oakville, Ont. that will provide space for 640 residents and is expected to be open by 2025.

These new homes are made possible by the province’s initiative to sell unused government land on the condition that a portion of the site be used for long-term care in areas where land is costly and scarce, states a release, adding the province has signed a conditional agreement of purchase and sale with Schlegel Villages Inc. for 2165 Dundas St. W. in Oakville, adjacent to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

Part of the province’s plan to fix the long-term care sector is to leverage surplus provincial lands.

The Ontario government is also making a $2.68 billion investment in long-term care development. The province now has 20,161 new and 15,918 upgraded beds in the development pipeline, which means more than 60 per cent of the 30,000 new beds being delivered are in the planning, construction and completed stages of the development process, adds the release.

“Our community is thankful for the province’s commitment to long-term care in our town,” said Rob Burton, mayor of Oakville, in a statement. “For many years there has been a growing need for long-term care in Oakville to support our aging and diverse population. The long-term care beds in north Oakville will lower the wait time for patients that need a more permanent home and will also free up hospital beds for acute patients.”
