About the Centre
Tavistock is the place where peopleCareâ€™s culture of caring and community service first began. CEO Brent Gingerichâ€™s grandparents, LeRoy and Ruth Schlegel, founded peopleCare in 1967 in an old schoolhouse built in the 1800s. The existing Tavistock Long-Term Care Home was built in the 1970s and has been an integral part of the community ever since. Redevelopment plans are underway for a brand-new Home with 128 beds.
