Welcome to Fairhaven

 Fairhaven’s Annual Fall Carnival September 27, 2019.

Fairhaven held its Annual Family Carnival for our Residents, staff and their families. Everyone had a full  evening enjoying the BBQ, bouncy castles, games, wagon ride, petting zoo and many other events.

“I have resided at Fairhaven for six very enjoyable years. I have been treasurer of the Resident Council for five years. The home has numerous daily activities, both mental and physical, to keep the mind and body active. The spacious grounds are ideal for those that wish to walk outdoors or wish to sit and enjoy the scenery. For those that want to rest, relax or meditate the garden patio is an excellent place to enjoy the surroundings. Management and staff are superb. All staff are exceptionally courteous and helpful. The home has eight dining rooms so there is no line up for meals. The meals are excellent. There are nurses 24/7 and a physician on call. I would certainly recommend Fairhaven as an ideal place to spend your golden years. We are indeed very fortunate to have Fairhaven in our community.”

Joe Sullivan, Resident of Fairhaven


Established in 1960, Fairhaven is a 256-bed Long-Term Care Home offering high quality and compassionate care.

The redevelopment of Fairhaven finished in 2003 with Residents and staff moving into our “brand new” Home on January 27th of that year.

Fairhaven has established itself as an innovative organization committed to continuous quality improvement that serves the people of the Peterborough region.   As the needs of the community have changed, Fairhaven has responded by expanding its scope of services and reaching out to serve the continuum of needs in the long-term care field to individuals of all ages.

Fairhaven is a provincial model for the design and delivery of highly specialized programs and services, to its Residents and to other organizations in the community and beyond.

Our Home includes active Resident and Family Councils which provides for direct representation concerning issues which impact the quality of life of individuals residing at Fairhaven.
