Markhaven Home for Seniors

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 60 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. Please refer to Resident Applications for information about admission.

In honour of National Volunteer Week , April 14-20, 2024, please join us in recognizing and thanking our volunteers for their tremendous contribution to our Home.

Markhaven Home for Seniors began in 1960 as a small, private residence on Main St., Markham, where Lois and Wes Neely started caring for seniors in their home. Today, more than 60 years later, Markhaven is home to 96 residents, providing care and assistance with daily activities to those requiring long-term assistance. Markhaven is still in the same community and in fact, within walking distance of the original home.

Our volunteers have played a large part in this growth and contribution to the community. We simply could not do all we do without their hard work and dedication. Their friendly presence and smiling faces, and their kindness and compassion brighten up each and every day and is something our residents look forward to. Every single volunteer helps us to maintain a happy, enjoyable environment at Markhaven and we appreciate each and every visit they make.

We also extend our thanks to those individuals who volunteer their time and skills to Markhaven from outside our facility, in our community. Whether it’s fundraising, making beautiful items for our resident, providing much-needed services, or delivering treats, we are filled with gratitude.

Once again, our heartfelt thanks go out to our volunteers for all they do. It is an honour and a pleasure to have such selfless, caring individuals as part of our team.

❤ Thank you to our volunteers from the bottom of our hearts! ❤
