Our Background

In 1998, Central Place Retirement Community was designed and built on the site of the former “Central United Church” located at Third Avenue East in the city of Owen Sound. We feel honored to have been provided the opportunity to construct our care home on this site as it has become a significant resource to the community of Owen Sound, quietly replacing the original church, which has so surely dignified the site for well over a hundred years.


Central Place is one of the leading private retirement homes in the city and hosts both state-of-the-art alarm, personal paging and communication systems. These are in place to ensure that our resident membership is afforded every opportunity to remain safe and in touch with our hospitality staff, each other and friends.

Moving Forward

The facility is fully air-conditioned and boasts a hot water forced air system which serves to ensure personal comfort throughout all the seasons.


Further, our residence has two full-sized and independent elevator systems accessing all floors, and these units are situated in such a manner as to ensure maximum assistance. It is said that our home is like a tastefully appointed hotel setting that doesn’t disappoint.


To say this senior’s living retirement residence has nicely filled the emotional void left by the demolition of the former church is entirely correct.


Today as we move forward into the future, our Central Place Retirement Community proudly takes her rightful place among some of the most prestigious buildings in the heart of Owen Sound.


We have maintained a commitment here that “our home must be as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside.”


Our client and employee membership have come to learn this is expressed not only in our beautiful architecture and nice furniture, but rather more in our caring attitude and gentle system of personal assistance where it is needed.


The difference between us and the other retirement places will always be found in our detailed attention to your individual comfort and needs.


Many people have discovered the difference to be found in our exclusive membership here and we believe our very future in this community depends on it being here.
