A message from our Executive Director

Welcome to Applewood!

Whatever it may be that has brought you to us, we are here to listen, offer support and invite you to be a part of the Applewood family.

Applewood is a long-standing community member not only of Kawartha Heights and the “West End”, but is also a known pillar in Peterborough City as a whole. We often hear our residents comparing stories of growing up, meeting spouses and finding work right in the surrounding Streets and Avenues of Peterborough.

This is a place where General Electric, Quaker Oats, Holiday Ford and Civic Hospital gather, to make connections, share stories of loss and fill each other with laughter.

History exists in the halls of Applewood. We learn from those who are here and from those who wish to come, the days of the past, the one who was a proud nurse, a well-known farmer or a Veteran of war.

At Applewood, we strongly believe you will find your place. Supporting transition, following life changes and creating comfort and expressing care, is what we do. We want you to know you are heard, cared for and supported within the family of Applewood.

Our rooms are comfortable, and spacious enough for friends or grandchildren to visit, not to mention your four legged companion. We have rooms with a variety of layouts, and when you are ready to visit, we would be happy to share lunch and show you around.

Let us know how we can help you to become a member of our Applewood family. We are here to help you, your family, your spouse and your friends, showing you that we are ready and waiting with caring hearts, to create lasting and warm memories.
