Downsview's senior care

Downsview, in the district of North York, north of Toronto, is famous for Downsview Park, which hosts numerous large public events especially during summer. The Toronto Council on Aging is also located in this region. This organization helps older adults maintain independent lifestyles by promoting positive attitudes and behaviors towards aging and giving a voice to those who are aging.

Aging of the population is probably one of the most discussed and debated subjects in Canada today. Ontario Retirement Communities Association (ORCA)-recognized retirement homes maintain high standards of service and care. Downsview has several activities and voluntary groups that work for seniors. The atmosphere and ambience at the retirement homes here are conducive to good physical and mental health. Advanced medical facilities, up-to-date security systems and a range of recreational activities enhance the living experience at these homes for the elderly. Seniors looking for retirement homes in Downsview can expect to get the best in terms of care, services, amenities and lifestyle choices.
