Welcome to Lord Dufferin Retirement Residence!

active senior excersiseFamily-owned and operated since 1998, we are centrally located to downtown Orangeville, situated on the site of the former Dufferin Area Hospital. At that time, a lot of planning, hard work and perseverance went into transforming our building into its present design and elegance. Today, we offer the community a ‘unique’ and charming Retirement Residence, complemented with a host of on-site amenities and services.

At LDC, we pride ourselves in providing exceptional living for our residents and working environment for our team members.

LDC’s culture is both memorable and rewarding, as we believe our greatest accomplishment is when residents live well…in our home…with us. Our team of dedicated staff are deeply committed to deliver excellent customer service each and every day.

Come and experience a “Better Way of Living” for yourself!

From the heart,

Dave Holwell
