In the Comfort Life Spotlight

AdvantAge Ontario is the re-branded name of the Ontario Association of Non-profit Housing and Services for Seniors (OANHSS) as of 2017. Despite increasing membership, expanding mandates, and changes in culture, this organization has retained a central vision for over 100 years. As its previous name indicates, AdvantageOntario represents not-for-profit providers of long term care, services and housing for seniors. Its primary goal has always been "to provide a forum for effective leadership and support and to represent members’ issues with a strong voice so that they remain viable in a competitive and changing environment." From its inception, it has aimed to be "the recognized leader and champion" in its industry. Go to the website to learn more about AdvantAge Ontario

Not-for-profit retirement homes in Ontario are also accountable to the Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority (RHRA), which was created in 2011. This legislative body inspects, regulates, and licenses retirement homes from across the province. It maintains a public registry of licensed senior residences in Ontario. In addition, the RHRA educates residents about their rights and what they should expect from any retirement home. The RHRA will give you some tips on what to look for in a senior community.
