Welcome to
West Perth Village Seniors’ Community

Welcome to West Perth Village!

Care and compassion in a country setting!  That is what you will discover when you step onto the Campus of West Perth Village, located in Mitchell, Ontario in beautiful Perth County!

Inspired by the vision of Charles Ritz, the Ritz Lutheran Villa began as a not-for-profit continuing care retirement community in 1974. For nearly 50 years, our employees and our Board of Directors have dedicated their lives to ensuring that the residents of West Perth always have a place to call home.  A home where seniors can thrive and continue to make meaningful contributions and interact with their community. Our new logo, designed by members of the community, serves as a reflection of our deep farming and agricultural roots founded on the land surrounding the mighty Thames River Watershed!

That legacy of caring as our reason for being, now continues with the coming together of Mitchell Nursing Home and Ritz Lutheran Villa, in our new home – West Perth Village.
