About Us

Welcome to Caressant Care Nursing & Retirement Homes
“Caring Families – Yours and Ours Together”

Caressant Care was founded in 1975 with a 60-bed Nursing Home in Woodstock, Ontario. We now own and operate 15 Nursing Homes and 10 Retirement Homes (which are all adjoined to a Nursing Home).

Caressant Care Nursing and Retirement Homes are located primarily in small towns in Ontario. Many residents are friends, neighbours and even family members of our staff. This small town atmosphere is evident by the care, respect and helpfulness shown by all Caressant Care staff.
