Markhaven’s Care and Accommodations

Since our inception in 1960, Markhaven has earned a reputation of providing excellent care for seniors and those requiring long term assistance.

Markhaven is licensed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and operates under the Long Term Care Homes Act, 2007. As such, we provide 24 hour on-site nursing care and assistance with activities of daily living and individualized care planning; meals planned by a registered dietician, regular physician and pharmacist visits, laundry, activities to support or restore fitness, restorative nursing to optimize residents’ independence, OHIP funded physiotherapy, and many activity programs including birthday and festive celebrations. We assist residents in arranging on-site hairdressing, dental assessments and podiatry care.
