Construction Begins on The Village of Stouffer Mills Long-Term Care Home

Stouffville — Construction has commenced on The Village of Stouffer Mills, a new 192-bed long-term care home in Whitchurch-Stouffville. This project is among 67 long-term care home initiatives fast-tracked last fall, benefiting from the Ontario government’s increased construction funding subsidy. This move aligns with the government’s pledge to create 58,000 new and upgraded long-term care beds across the province.

“Congratulations to the team at The Village of Stouffer Mills on the construction of this new home. Our government is fixing long-term care and ensuring we build homes for seniors in the communities they helped build,” stated Natalia Kusendova-Bashta, Minister of Long-Term Care. “Today marks a significant milestone for the Town of Stouffville. When construction is complete, 192 residents will have a new, modern, and comfortable place to call home.”

The Village of Stouffer Mills construction marks the first of three phases to establish a campus-of-care for seniors, encompassing accommodation and outreach programs throughout the region. This campus-of-care model aims to integrate the long-term care home into the broader healthcare system, ensuring residents have convenient access to necessary care.

The new building will feature several design enhancements, including a 32-bed resident home area (RHA) on each of its six floors. These RHAs provide a more intimate and familiar living environment, complete with dining and activity areas, lounges, and bedrooms. Additionally, the design incorporates extensive common spaces along the ‘Main Street’ of the home, connecting individual home areas with the larger community.

Thanks to the government’s increased construction funding subsidy, designed to kickstart more long-term care home projects across Ontario, 67 projects, including The Village of Stouffer Mills, received ministry approval for construction between April 1, 2022, and August 31, 2023. This initiative has led to the construction of 11,199 new and upgraded beds meeting modern design standards across the province. Following its success, the government extended the construction funding subsidy on April 23, 2024, for all eligible projects approved for construction by November 30, 2024.

The government’s long-term care strategy focuses on four pillars: staffing and care; quality and enforcement; building modern, safe, and comfortable homes; and connecting seniors with faster, more convenient access to necessary services.
