Dearness Home Living

Dearness is all about living


Dearness Home is a long-term care home, owned and operated by the City of London. We are also members of Advantage Ontario. 

For over 50 years, we strive to develop innovative ways of meeting the needs of our residents and putting their goals first. Living at Dearness is enhanced by the respect we show for our residents, their families, friends, volunteers, staff and the community that we serve. Our staff is comprised of men and women from various cultural backgrounds reflecting the diversity of our community and improving our ability to converse with our residents.

As a public representative of the City of London, we occupy a position of trust.

When you choose Dearness Home, know that you have chosen "Compassionate people enriching the lives of others.  Always".

The Grounds

The Dearness Home is situated on 57 acres of mature trees and gardens adjacent to The Westminister Ponds Conservation Area.  Our lovely grounds are surrounded by gardens and park benches for outdoor enjoyment and gardening.  Residents can enjoy several walking paths and our outdoor legacy garden and gazebo.
