A rich history in Kingston
Rideaucrest has been at 175 Rideau St. since 1993. The City's original long-term care home was a stone building built in 1935 on Montreal Street.
The home expanded three times between 1956 and 1967, to become a 256-bed facility providing care and services to elderly residents. In 1985, a study looked at the need to renovate the space and modernize services, paving the way for the new Rideaucrest Home to be built.
