Our Vision To change the world of senior living.

peopleCare Communities

peopleCare’s history began in 1968 when LeRoy and Ruth Schlegel started providing care to those in need in Tavistock, Ontario.  The peopleCare philosophy and values remain the same today resulting in an outstanding reputation in the health care sector.

The fundamental mission of everyone at peopleCare Communities is to provide a place where each Resident is valued and cared for.  From the thoughtful design of our Homes, to hiring committed staff and the development of unique and engaging programs.  peopleCare Communities continues to improve the quality of life for all the Residents we serve.
