Administrative history

The Bobier Convalescent Home has been in operation since the early 1950s. The home and its property were provided to the municipalities of the Township of Dunwich and the Village of Dutton by the Bobier Estate. In 1988, the Elgin County Homes for Seniors Committee of Management completed a seniors' needs study to the year 2010, recommending the provision of a satellite facility in the west end of Elgin County in conjunction with a redeveloped Bobier Home. The Board of the Bobier Convalescent Home purchased a 25-acre site in the Township of Dunwich adjacent to the Village of Dutton. The redeveloped, 57-bed Bobier Villa facility was completed in 1997.
