Markhaven Home for Seniors
Markhaven is a publicly funded and inspected Long Term Care nursing home in Markham, recognized for the high quality of care and loving environment it provides to seniors in our community. Our 96-bed long term care facility has been serving Markham and the surrounding area for more than 50 years; from our simple beginnings in a small home on Markham Main Street to our new senior housing facility at 54 Parkway Ave, we have come along way with the help of our community, volunteers and the dedication of our staff.
As is stated in our Mission Statement, we strive to provide excellent service for residents of every culture in a supportive, caring Christian environment, and to maintain a high level of dignity and individuality. With your continued support we plan to be here for you and your families for many years to come.

. Mother’s Day Celebration
Our Mother’s Day Celebration on Friday, May 10th, was everything we hoped it would be! The atmosphere was friendly, warm and lively. The celebration included mothers, daughters, sons, great grandchildren and others….together, we celebrated “Mothers”.
There was live entertainment by Mr. and Mrs. Vazquet, who were fabulous and put on an amazing performance. Their musicality was reciprocated with much positive feedback from the audience!
Refreshments, finger food and special snacks were available for everyone and each resident received a fresh cut carnation flower and a “mother’s day wish”. Overall, an enjoyable, memorable afternoon!
