About Shalom Manor

Shalom Manor and Gardens is a Christian senior’s care home with firm roots in the Dutch community. In 2024, we will celebrate our 45th Anniversary. Shalom opened its first home-for-the-aged in 1969 in Grimsby. We now house 144 seniors in long term care and an additional 36 assisted living residents.


The home was started by the Christian Reformed Classis' of Niagara and Hamilton to provide care for the aging family members of Dutch immigrants who had come to Canada. As a Dutch Reformed home Shalom offers food, activities and religious programming from the Dutch Reformed traditions.


In 2023, we broke ground on a 260 bed, $150.0M facility in Hamilton. The new campus will be transformative in the way elder care is provided. We will continue our culture of quality and innovation, remain focused on person-centred care, and hold strong to our biblical values.
