About Golden Dawn

Golden Dawn Senior Citizen Home is a Long-Term Care Facility and Senior Citizen Apartment complex

located in the picturesque village of Lion's Head, Ontario on the shores of Georgian Bay.

Inspired by our founders, Reverend Sherman and Mrs. Geneva Myles, we are a Christian based health care organization

committed to preserving the dignity and worth of each resident based on the belief that all people in our community

regardless of race, creed, national origin, beliefs, sexual orientation or gender have an equal right to be provided with exceptional care.

Our History

Golden Dawn Senior Citizen Home was founded by the Bruce Peninsula Pentecostal Assemblies, under the leadership of Rev. Sherman Myles and his wife Geneva Myles.   They purchased the William’s Hotel in Lion’s Head with the intention of opening a nursing home to provide care for seniors.  The hotel was renovated and opened as a nursing home in 1965.

  The need for services directed to the senior population increased over the years.   Golden Dawn responded by expanding the initial services to include independent apartment style living, as well as, long-term care.   The new facility opened in 1981.

In 2002 the William's Hotel structure was demolished to make way for a new administrative wing.   This new wing was completed in 2004.

Today Golden Dawn Senior Citizen Home continues to serve the needs of the senior population of Northern Bruce Peninsula.   We are grateful for the vision and dedication of the founding Board of Directors.   With respect for our past, we look forward to the future, committed to meeting the multifaceted needs of seniors.

Golden Dawn is a private Canadian registered charity, incorporated in Ontario and licensed with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
