Muskoka Shores Care Community in Gravenhurst

Welcome to Muskoka Shores

The care community opened its doors in 1999, and is situated in the picturesque town of Gravenhurst. Themed home areas represent the beautiful lakes surrounding this long-term care community; and the Muskoka setting is evident in its décor, friendly team members and vibrant activity program. Family members can sign-out a laptop when visiting, making it convenient to show photos of family and friends. Children from a local daycare visit the care community for intergenerational time with residents; and Fall Fair day brings the fair to the residents with farm animals, a BBQ lunch, and a pub night. An enclosed courtyard and garden area provide an opportunity to relax and enjoy the Muskoka surroundings.

Transitions: The Convalescent Care and Interim Short-Stay Program (called Transitions) opened in March 2013. The convalescent care program provides rehabilitation services to people recovering from illness or surgery. The short-stay program provides interim accommodation, care and service for seniors as they wait for their preferred long-term care community.

If you have a concern or complaint about the health, safety, or wellbeing of a person living in long term care, we encourage you to bring it to the attention of the care community and its manager. You may also contact the Ministry of Long-Term Care’s toll-free telephone number for making complaints at 1-866-434-0144, with the hours of operation: 8:30 a.m.-7:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
