Durham Christian Homes was established and incorporated in 1983 as an interdenominational organization to provide housing for seniors in Durham Region. We received permission in 1986 from The Ontario Ministry of Housing to build and operate a seniors residence.
The planning and financial support for the establishment of Durham Christian Homes as a Christian seniors residence was initiated with tremendous input and financial support from members of the local Reformed Churches.
Today we are very grateful for their determination and vision as we serve residents in two residential towers and a large community centre.
Providence Place, was completed in 1988
Tekoa Manor was completed in 2002.
Friendship Hall, the community hub, connecting Providence Place and Tekoa Manor, was completed in 2003.
Both residential towers are intended for seniors who can live independently.
Bowmanville Long Term Care Homes
To further the vision of our membership and provide continuums of care where seniors can age in place, Glen Hill Terrace Christian Homes (a subsidiary of Durham Christian Homes) purchased two long-term care homes in Bowmanville in March 2011; Glen Hill Marnwood and Glen Hill Strathaven. Both homes combined can accommodate 270 residents.
A Bright Future
Residents and staff at Glen Hill Strathaven are celebrating the donation of land and the government fast-track of approvals that will create a new long-term care home in Bowmanville. Read all about it here:
