Markhaven Home for Seniors
Welcome to Markhaven!
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. Please refer to Resident Applications for information about admission.

WE ARE CELEBRATING NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK!
April 7 – 13, 2019
THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS
Next year will be Markhaven’s 60th year serving the community! Throughout all these years, volunteers have been an integral part of our Home.
Everyone at Markhaven would like to send out a warm thank you to our volunteers, who come in on a daily basis and help us in our goal of providing the best service possible to our residents.
Our volunteers gladly take time out of their busy lives to come to Markhaven and share their smiling faces and friendly presence, their kindness and compassion, and their talents and energy. They work hard and are willing to learn. When asked what they hope to take away from the volunteering experience, they say that they would like to make a difference in our residents’ lives and make a positive impact on our Home.
We are so proud to say that our volunteers do this and so much more. They are part of the fabric of our Home and we couldn’t do what we do without them.
Markhaven sends out a warm thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our phenomenal volunteers.
Markhaven and BPSO
Markhaven is proud to announce that we are taking part in the Long Term Care BPSO initiative. Our goal is to become a Best Practice Spotlight Organization over the next 3 years. This initiative focuses on making a positive impact on resident care through evidence-base practice.
We are very proud and grateful to announce that the Blue Energy Committee at the Hilton Toronto Markham Suites partnered with Markhaven this month to upgrade and improve our gardens and spend a lovely day in the sun with our residents!
As part of the fabulous work the Hilton does for the community, the Blue Energy team came over to Markhaven on a bright sunny day, fully prepared and ready to work. They brought many flats of beautiful flowers, gardening tools and a lot of good cheer. The day was spent weeding, hoeing, arranging and planting, and visiting and chatting with our residents. Our colour theme was red and white and the end result was a gorgeous, eye-pleasing, relaxing garden area for our residents to enjoy over the coming months. Pictures of the event can be viewed here.
All of us at Markhaven would like to thank the Hilton for their thoughtfulness and support, their hard work and for making such a difference for our residents and the community. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Solar Panels at Markhaven
We are excited to announce that Markhaven has installed Solar Panels on our roof top. The panels will produce clean power to offset the electricity consumed in day-to-day operations. We would like to thank our residents and visitors for their patience and understanding during the installation phase.
