Long Term Care Redevelopment Report Coming March 23

Long term care redevelopment is back on the agenda at Grey County on Thursday, March 23. A new staff report asks council to consider several options to enhance services for seniors in our communities. These include:

  1. Amalgamate beds from Grey Gables and Rockwood Terrace into a single new long term care home in Durham.
  2. Repurpose Grey Gables to an assisted living/retirement home once the new long term care home is ready for occupancy.
  3. Contract a management company to provide oversight to the day-to-day operations of long term care and provide input into the construction of a new home.

Council will discuss the report for the first time on March 23 during Committee of the Whole meeting. A recording of council’s deliberations will be made available on Grey County’s website a few days after the meeting. The report is available as part of the March 23 Committee of the Whole agenda package on

Grey County is hosting two public presentations to give the public an opportunity to learn about the report and share their feedback.
