Dundas Manor inspires happiness and joy, but our building does not.

More than $13.3M of $18M raised!

Dundas Manor inspires happiness and joy, but our building does not.

Together, we can change that.

When you walk into Dundas Manor, smiles, laughter, and the smell of our favourite family recipes will greet you at the door. But the building itself needs so much work. It was designed in 1978 for 60 residents. While 38 beds were added over the years, no additional common areas or dining rooms were included in the renovations. The home’s design no longer meets our residents’ needs and the building itself is deteriorating. Further renovations are simply not practical or cost effective.

Before & After - Because of Caring People Like You


The hallways at Dundas Manor are narrow and crowded. No one planned for many more walkers, wheelchairs, and specialized equipment.


The new Dundas Manor has wider hallways and larger door frames, making it easier for everyone to get around.


Currently, there are limited spaces for residents to come together.


The home will have four resident home areas that we are calling Homesteads. Each one will have a wonderful gathering space as well as beautiful gardens nearby outside.


The Dundas Manor dining room is very small. In fact, residents currently eat in hallways

Dining room and kitchenette


Hallway dining will be a thing of the past as there will be four large and bright dining rooms with enough space for everyone.


Current four-resident rooms offer little privacy and are very crowded.


All rooms in the new home will be private or semi-private. The semi-private rooms are for two people; each person will have their own room and will share one bathroom. Everyone will have a window.

The new home will offer so much more for our residents.

Inspiring Happiness and Joy

Warm, cozy spaces to spend leisure time. Caring, compassionate team members bringing joy to the lives of our residents. They do so by offering meaningful, creative programs, and 1:1 engagements. Some activities are planned, and some are spontaneous. To begin, residents and their families are asked a simple question: What do you like to do?

Every day, there is something happening at Dundas Manor – from games and crafts
to live entertainment and pubs; from trips down memory lane to trips to a local farm; from video calls with family far away to faith-filled services full of song. The new Dundas Manor will provide even more opportunities to gather, celebrate, and keep the magic going. Imagine what more can be done with all the new spaces in the new Dundas Manor.

Please consider us as you prepare or update your estate and financial plans. This type of support – called planned giving – is a simple and impactful way for anyone to give. Even a person of modest means can make a major contribution to the health care of family and friends in the years to come. Estate gifts, such as including the WDMH Foundation in your Will, or being named as a beneficiary to an investment or life insurance policy are often called legacy gifts. Most legacy gifts are future gifts – they are planned now and made in the future, but some are given today. Everyone can make such a gift. Each and every gift, no matter what size, is important and special. 

If you are interested in receiving more information, please reach out to Erin Kapcala, Manager of Major and Planned Giving at 613-292-7468 ekapcala@wdmh.on.ca. We encourage you to discuss your plans with your family, your advisors, and with us.
