peopleCare Communities: A.R. Goudie Retirement

The Challenge

A.R. Goudie is a long-term care residence owned by peopleCare with developable land surrounding the existing building. Senior Living Pro was asked to review the feasibility and architectural design for an Independent Supportive and Assisted Living residence to be co-located with a new expanded long-term care residence.

The Solution

Market feasibility and competitive review findings were utilized to establish a new suite mix and sizing, amenities, architectural program and fill projections. The Senior Living Pro study, conducted in Kitchener based on the primary market area of A.R. Goudie site, resulted in significant changes to the existing architectural plan, price and Proforma modeling as well as the operational service and planning discussions.


peopleCare worked with Jodi Flanagan on several recent projects and we have been thoroughly impressed by the depth of her experience and insight into the Retirement Home industry. Her expertise supported our approach to co-designing campuses of care that offer the right mix of care, services and amenities to meet the unique needs of our communities. Just as important, Jodi has mastered the art and science of balancing the realities of the marketplace with an appreciation of peopleCare’s commitment to creating exceptional experiences for everyone who lives in, works at or visits our Homes.
