It was founded in 1918 as the Toronto Jewish Old Folks Home in a semi-detached Victorian house at 29 Cecil Street in downtown Toronto and later neighbouring homes from the 1920s to 1930s (now . The New Jewish Home for the Aged moved up on Bathurst Street in 1954 and again in 1968, the new Jewish Home for the Aged opened at Baycrest's present location in North York and Baycrest Hospital was also built as a geriatric facility occupying the second home for the aged. The entire Bathurst complex became known collectively as Baycrest.
The old Jewish Home for the Aged (at 29, 31 and 33) Cecil Street was demolished in 1954 and is now home to the United Steelworkers Larry Sefton Hall (c. 1972 at 25 Cecil Street) and Toronto Labour Lyceum (c. 1971 33 Cecil Street).
While Baycrest serves all of the elderly, it was founded by and for the Jewish community and thus caters specifically to the needs of the Jewish elderly, including those of Holocaust survivors. Baycrest's facilities include a full-service hospital, the Jewish Home for the Aged nursing home, the Baycrest Terrace Assisted Living facility, and a research facility affiliated with the University of Toronto.
