Windsor Elms Village

The Windsor Elms Village is a private, not-for-profit long term care Home governed by a Board of Directors carefully selected from the community. Together we work to create a home environment where residents can continue to grow and experience the fullness of life. We are interested in providing the best level of health care possible with the funds allocated to operate our Home.

Our Home brings people together from different backgrounds, outlooks, roles and at various stages in life. The common thread is a sense of community, a commitment to an ideal philosophy. Windsor Elms Village is that kind of community.

We have three distinct Neighbourhoods: Osprey Landing; Meadowview Landing or Fundyview Terrace. Each is connected by a street; either Osprey Lane or Meadowview Lane.
