Welcome to the New Barrie Manor Retirement Commmunity, where we celebrate everything that makes life beautiful. Recent renovations and a new management team have breathed new life into a Retirement Home and Nursing Home that has been a landmark in Barrie since 1987.  Today, more than ever, we welcome each day's opportunities with enthusiasm and energy. As a result, you'll find a community of happy and motivated people who share a love of fun, friendship and participation.  You'll find excellent meal programs and a busy roster of healthy activities to engage every resident's interests.  You'll also find opportunities for quiet contemplation and rest - all essential aspects of an inspired retirement lifestyle.  We invite you to visit us in person, meet our dedicated and compassionate Senior Care team, and to learn more about our exceptional retirement community.

We have recently completed upgrades to our main entryway, atrium and main lounge areas, dining room, garden terrace and our dramatic curved staircase. Very soon, our spa will also be upgraded with a new hydro therapy tub.  We look forward to sharing these developments with you.
