Overview

The Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care is expanding its seniors’ housing campus in Scarborough with a new 5-storey plus one level underground, 224-bed long term care home. This project heads a growing demand among the Asian-Canadian community for long-term care beds. It will also help strengthen the continuum of care the campus offers, expanding and enhancing Yee Hong’s existing complement of programs and services.

The new development occupies a vacant parcel of land between the existing LTC building and senior’s life-lease complex. A generous entrance canopy distinguishes the building and its main entrance, it also helps bridging both the drop-off and pedestrian network off Scottfield Drive. A path also leads from the canopy to a shared healing garden.

Its design is driven by three key objectives: ample natural light, easy access to the outdoors and a cohesive campus fabric. The intent is to create a peaceful and pleasant indoor environment for residents. The ground floor consists of a variety of resident and community amenity spaces that connect directly to a series of outdoor gardens for compelling indoor-outdoor connections. Among these spaces is an adult day program, great hall and fireplace lounges, and a series of bookable community event space, one of which accommodates a removable stage for performances.

Upper floors are dedicated to 28-bed Resident Home Areas. RHAs are paired and stacked, creating two distinct wings. Each wing is organized around a large, secure courtyard. Private, semi private, and couples rooms (1 per floor) are available. Amenity and service spaces on each floor occupy the core between the two wings. A lower-level link connects the new home to the existing LTC home next door.

Occupancy is slated for Q2 of 2026.
