History

In 2004, St. Joseph’s at Fleming, a 200 bed, Catholic, not-for-profit long term care home, was officially formed. It was the result of a partnership between Marycrest Home for the Aged, Anson House and Fleming College.

Both Homes had a long and respected tradition in this community; boasting over 235 years of combined experience in providing quality long term care in Peterborough and the surrounding region. When a 1998 assessment determined that the old buildings would have to be rebuilt, Marycrest Home for the Aged and Anson House made the historic decision to amalgamate and invite Fleming College into a new and unique partnership.

The first long-term care facility built on the campus of a learning institution, St. Joseph’s at Fleming partnered with Fleming College to create an Institute for Healthy Aging (IHA), in which practical learning opportunities for both organizations became ingrained in the day-to-day care of the Residents.

Today, the tradition and goals of this endeavour remain strong. St. Joseph’s at Fleming has expanded its learning partnerships and educational opportunities, while remaining true to our long and distinguished histories with a solemn commitment to our Residents and their families.
