Name of creator
Georgian Manor Home for the Aged, a fully accredited Long Term Care Facility, is a five-level building located on the former site of the Penetanguishene General Hospital, two blocks from the main intersection of town. In 1957, the County of Simcoe added a two-level addition to the old hospital to accommodate 52 senior citizens. The first resident was admitted to the Manor on July 1, 1957.
Demand for seniors’ accommodation turned out to be greater than the supply. In 1961, the original hospital portion of the home was replaced by a new service component, kitchen, laundry, dining room, activity space, and a bedroom wing to accommodate an additional 45 seniors. Space was also provided for live-in accommodation for 5 employees.
In 1971, a second addition was completed. This provided a large auditorium, chapel, library, games and craft room, and a "Senior Citizens Centre" for the use of Manor residents and local senior citizens organizations. The staff accommodation was converted to residential accommodation for four, bringing the Manor’s occupancy to105.
In July, 1990, an extensive retrofit was completed that included the addition of 2 more respite or short stay beds—increasing occupancy to 107—, the construction of a maintenance shop and expanded laundry facilities, an enlargement of the main dining room, and the addition of a fifth floor for storage, staff use, and a link to the Penetanguishene General Hospital.
2014 saw the completion of Georgian Village, an expansion of the original home for the aged into a neighbourhood based on a life lease condo sale model.
Accession 986-06 was transferred to the Simcoe County Archives in a larger collection of records from the County vault while accession 2004-01 came in a transfer directly from Georgian Manor. Accessions 2014-14 and 2014-21 were transferred to the Archives via the County of Simcoe Records Coordinator.
