Rideaucrest Home is a City-owned, non-profit long-term care facility. It overlooks Kingston's beautiful inner harbour just three blocks from the city's downtown core.

Rideaucrest offers 170 bright, climate-controlled, single-resident rooms. Its gathering and activity spaces are equipped with modern and accessible comforts aimed at supporting and enriching the lives of residents.

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.
