Christian Long Term Care
Shalom Manor is unique in that we are a Christian long-term-care home with firm roots in the Dutch community, the Christian Reformed Church and other Reformed Christian denominations
Welcome to Shalom Manor
Nestled within the heart of beautiful Niagara, you will find Shalom Manor in Grimsby. Shalom was originally built as a 74-bed seniors’ home by the Christian Reformed Churches of Classis Niagara & Hamilton to care for residents of Dutch descent in a Christian home setting.
Today, Shalom Manor has 144 long-term care beds and has been joined by Shalom Gardens which consists of a 36 unit assisted living/retirement apartment complex. The Christian Reformed Churches have also been joined in this important ministry by churches of the United Reformed, Canadian Reformed, Free Reformed, Netherlands Reformed, Heritage Reformed, and Reformed Churches of America.
Shalom Manor has five home areas – four of them, on the south side, stacked on top of one another in ‘the tower’ – which consists of the Orchards, Sunrise Court, Terrace view, and Lakeview. Each of these home areas has 22 private accommodations and 6 semi-private accommodations. Our fifth home area, Mapleview, located on the north side of the building has 32 private accommodations with direct access to the beautifully kept outdoor courtyard. Each home area has a shower room, a tub room, and a whirlpool tub. Each resident accommodation is furnished with a bed, night table, chair, and a small dresser.
Shalom has a large auditorium that is used for many events including Sunday church service, Friday afternoon hymn sing, bowling, piano recitals, choir performances, bocce ball, resident rentals for birthdays and anniversaries, and more.
We are thankful and blessed to have a large volunteer base of 200+ active volunteers who assist residents with moving around the home to activities and meals, helping with various activities and games, providing assistance at mealtimes, visiting residents with our friendly visits program, and so much more. Our Café and General Store are also fully run by volunteers and provide a hub of activity within the home.
Christian Care With Dignity
Shalom Manor is a charitable non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors, who represent its member churches. Shalom Manor is funded and regulated by the Ministry of Long Term Care (MOLTC). Shalom Manor receives significant financial and volunteer support from both its member churches and other area Reformed Churches.
Shalom Manor was incorporated in 1966 by the deacons of Classis Hamilton of the Christian Reformed Churches in the Hamilton-Niagara Regions. The original mandate to operate, on a non-profit basis, a home for the elderly members of the Christian Reformed Churches, has since grown as it now serves an even larger group of Christian seniors.
