Altamont Care Community in Scarborough

Welcome to Altamont

Altamont Care Community borders the Rouge Valley Conservation area in east Scarborough. This long-term care community opened in 1968, and has unique architecture, making for a very cottage-like feeling. The care community is set in a beautiful landscape of natural gardens which grow flowers and vegetables. During the warmer months, residents can enjoy the gardens with family and friends; and in colder weather, the focus turns indoors as residents remain active with a variety of programs and events. The 159 residents have access to  restorative care, physiotherapy, and palliative care programs. Air-conditioning is available in common areas and all resident rooms.
