Donwood is a faith-based organization supported by eight Winnipeg-based Mennonite Brethren Churches. Donwood has five locations throughout Winnipeg providing different levels of care at each. Whether it’s personal care or independent living, we endeavor to live by our Mission Statement every day at each facility.
Donwood is a place that enables the elderly to make the transition from their home to a caring community and allows the elderly to age with dignity and grace. It is a place where residents, tenants and family members know there is a commitment to continually improve the care, the services and the facilities.
Donwood strives to care for seniors with dignity, respect and Christian values.
