Our History

A proud tradition of compassionate care

St. Joseph’s at Fleming is a not-for-profit, long term care home serving 200 residents of all faiths, traditions and cultures. Formed from a partnership between Marycrest Home for the Aged, Anson House and Fleming College, SJF builds on the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph to provide compassionate person-centered long-term care support to ensure the care and comfort of each of our residents.

The first long-term care facility built on the campus of a learning institution, SJF partnered with Fleming College to create the Institute for Healthy Aging.
Our unique model of care for seniors remains
leading edge.

The challenge? Peterborough is home to one of the fastest growing senior populations in Canada. Our current systems can’t keep up with our rapidly growing and aging population combined with the complex health care needs of today.

As the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic swept across the globe, the Sisters of St. Joseph nourished and nursed the bodies and souls of those suffering. Following this legacy, the staff at SJF have embraced the call to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, risking their own lives in service of vulnerable residents.

Your gift today can help improve resident safety and security and ensure we have an upgraded HVAC system with the highest level of infection control possible.

The future depends on our actions today

Our caring staff have found creative ways to make do with out-dated equipment and technology in a facility that is in urgent need of updates. But the seniors who depend on our care deserve so much better.

Now more than ever, we must stay true to our mission of building on the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph to provide each of our residents with compassionate person-centered care and comfort.

“Without immediate action, the high standards of safe, secure, person-centered care we pride ourselves on is at risk.”
