KEEP GREY GABLES OPEN!!!

 

Grey Gables is one of three long term care homes run by the County of Grey. The staff were informed March 17, 2017, that Grey County has decided to go through with one of the recommendations for a report, to CLOSE Grey Gables.

It will be brought forward to counsel this Thursday March 23′ 2017. Unfortunately that doesn’t give the community of Markdale much time to digest the idea of losing 66 long term care beds.

Local Residents Oppose Closure of Grey Gables In Markdale

 

Sign-PetitionProtesters lined the highway in front of Grey Gables in Markdale Tuesday.

Employees of the long term care home, as well as area residents, are concerned the county-run facility could close.

In a report to go before Grey County Council Thursday, the county’s director of long term care, Lynne Johnson, recommends Grey Gables be put up for sale as an assisted living facility.  The 66 residents would be moved to a new facility to be built in Durham and amalgamated with Rockwood Terrace.

Grey Highlands Mayor Paul McQueen says employees are worried.

“It’s the uncertainty. It’s the uncertainty of the future of Grey Gables and the community of Markdale and their jobs,” says McQueen.
