It Takes a Village to Care

The Schlegel Family’s mission to offer a true sense of home and belonging for older adults is fuelled by our passion and commitment to learn from the residents we serve and the team members and partners who bring our vision to life.

Our Long-term Care and Retirement Villages thrive because the family culture has only grown stronger over the course of three generations. As a mission-driven, family organization, we believe every person connected to Village life has something important to offer and, as we grow into the future, the value of each contribution can never be overstated.

Who We Are

Schlegel Villages’ commitment to serving and respecting our elders has been guided by the family culture and values that have remained strong over the course of three generations. As a mission-driven, family organization, we believe every person connected to Village Life has an important contribution to make and, looking to the future, it will be imperative to stay firmly rooted in our values as we extend our mission further across Ontario.
