Our rich history of care

Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care can trace its rich history of caring back to 1869 when the Sisters of St. Joseph founded the original Mount Hope. Today, the Centre (formerly St. Mary’s and Marian Villa) is a 394-bed home with residents representing a variety of cultures, beliefs, and ages. While creating a home-like environment, Mount Hope is known for providing comprehensive long term care. There is a personalized program for each resident, encouraging participation in varied activities such as art therapy, gardening, local trips and sports activities.

Due to direction from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care regarding ward rooms and resident capacity, our home is currently operating with a 375 bed capacity.

Philosophy of care

The philosophy of care is centered on the needs of the individual and focused on enhancing independence, choice and personal wellness for the residents who live at Mount Hope. Interdisciplinary teams work with residents to promote both individual well-being and positive group dynamics in this shared living environment.

Mount Hope's philosophy of care is built on the following principles:

  • resident-focused care: emphasizing privacy and maximizing resident independence and choice;
  • creating a home-like environment;
  • providing opportunities for residents to enjoy activities they engaged in prior to moving to Mount Hope;
  • encouraging residents to enjoy the out-of-doors and be involved in the community
