All meet and serve the needs of both Brant County and the City of Brantford and their respective constituents as we are a municipally operated and governed facility.

Long Term Care

Long term care at John Noble Home consists of 156 long term care beds which includes three priority Veteran beds. Long term care continues to be the most recognized and core function of the organization. Our long term care operations are housed within a modern, state-of-the art environment with access to several beautiful common areas both inside and out.

It offers exercise, socialization, cognitive stimulation and recreation activities, snacks, and a meal. There are different programs for which clients can sign up.
