Thank you for visiting ComfortLife.ca - Canada’s trusted guide to retirement living and care.
We’re here to help you research and compare communities and care options, and ensure you have answers to all your most important questions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Comfort Life and Our Kids Media teams are working remotely in an effective way, using the infrastructure and technology we have in place. We're steadfast in continuing to advance the bold new tools and initiatives we're working on in 2020.
Given COVID-19’s elevated risk to older adults, retirement communities have taken strict precautionary actions to ensure the safety and well-being of their residents and employees, and to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
At this time, most retirement communities are only allowing essential visitors and they're screening upon arrival. If you’re currently looking for a community for yourself or a loved one, we recommend you call or email the community to leave your contact information so they can reach out to you when it's deemed safe. It's unlikely you’ll be able to schedule an in-person tour at this time. Active adult gated communities or condos may have looser restrictions (as of March 23). However, please maintain social distancing measures as recommended by Health Canada.
