John Noble served on City Council as an Alderman for 14 years between 1937 and 1958. He may be best known as the driving force behind expanding and improving the Brantford area home for the aged and played a leading role influencing the Province, Brantford and the County of Brant to fund this much needed long term care facility.

The original John Noble Home was built in 1954 and accommodated 78 residents. It expanded in 1961 to accommodate 210 residents and in 1965, a two storey addition was added raising the number of beds to 302. A final two storey addition was added in 1969 bringing the Home’s capacity to 406 beds.

Since 1969 the Home has undergone major renovations which were completed in the fall of 1990, resulting in a capacity of 361 beds including three (3) respite beds. In 1999, a partnership was formed with St. Joseph’s Healthcare System and 205 beds were transferred to the new St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre in the fall of 2004.

Currently, the John Noble Home is a 156 bed “Class A” facility.
