Oakville, Ontario
       

  • The phrase "reasonable cost" might be heard rarely when it comes to living anywhere in the city of Oakville — but the value you receive in senior care at Palermo Village means the phrase applies!

"Friendly" and "helpful" are terms used as a matter of course by family members, when describing the staff here. There's nothing better than hearing that your senior loved one loves where they live.

  • One thing that communities like this do very well is make exercise a part of your life. At the Courts of Canterbury, the outdoor pool seems destined to play a central role in community life, making it easy for people to stay active. The exercise option we really like is the trail along Lake Scugog, a perfect place for your daily dog walk or to simply enjoy vistas of the lake. The thing to really look forward to, though, will be the beauty of a brand new home in this peaceful, idyllic location.

  • Both family members and the seniors who live here list the most striking quality of this community as "the genuine friendliness of the staff" … their eagerness to please. And when it comes right down to it, that's the most important aspect of any retirement community. A clean, healthy environment with great food and fun activities is always important (Credit River has all those things!) but ultimately there's nothing better than being surrounded by people willing to go out of their way to make every day the best it can be.

The rich social aspect of living here makes it worth moving away from a traditional family home. We see it as an ideal bridge between typical active lifestyle communities and independent living for seniors.

  • When you leave behind house maintenance and the drudgeries associated with home ownership — everything from washing windows to paying property taxes — you find a new kind of liberation. Liberation to be yourself is a gift you give to yourself when you move into a community like Oceana PARC. Across Greater Vancouver, PARC communities gather together people with great attitudes who encourage each other to live their best.

Oakville, Ontario
     

  • The best and brightest of senior care living is going into this community. The amenities here are going to be dazzling. It will be home to an onsite café, pub, and other five-star features. There’s also going to be a hairdresser and a manicurist, along with a concierge to make sure all your needs are met. People who participate in brain gym really enjoy the benefits of this program. We think that if you’re going to move somewhere new, why not move somewhere brand new? The benefits of this are many. If you are looking for the best in the GTA, just imagine life in one of these bright suites with wide windows and completely new bath and kitchen stuff. This place promises a new kind of freedom, like you’ve never felt before.

  • There’s much to praise here. A number of things about this community are thrillingly unique. The beautiful design and location of the buildings are astonishing, with a wood grain exterior that fits spectacularly into the backdrop of the mountain landscape. We could go on. The most important thing about life at Origin at Spring Creek, though, is the community, made up of caring staff working with seniors content to have moved here.
  • Excellent Community! Beautifully designed with amazing staff who truly care!

  • The Waterford is a special place that delivers all the best of contemporary retirement living. Meals are excellent, activities fun and varied. To round it all off, the people that work here and live here are the best. What people find after moving into this community is that they have space to live anew and explore the freedom that comes with retirement living. That freedom (from tiresome daily chores like dishes, housework, and home maintenance) opens up liberty to do more with your day, to make new friends and find out how great community living in a group with your peers can be.

  • One of the common remarks from people who move in here is, “There’s so much to do.” And there really is. The games room features a shuffleboard, pool table and blackjack table. There’s also a movie theatre with a lending library. In The Village, another open-concept interior space, there’s a puzzle table, fitness classes daily, and a separate dining room. Floors are heated geo-thermally so you’ll never get cold toes. Suites are spacious, with stylish kitchenettes and an excess of storage closets. You’ll feel like you’ve moved into that luxury suite you loved so much, last time you went on a cruise.

Medicine Hat, Alberta
       

  • Perhaps the most important thing for some people is the suite where you live. Private suites here are also wonderfully immaculate, spacious, and cleanly laid out, things you will have seen as you come through the building. We love that many suites offer a full kitchen, so you can do your own thing when you want to. But that said, one of the final draws for us is the dining here! There are wonderful menu choices served up by a service staff that demonstrates care and humility in their treatment of those they serve. That makes it a delight to eat, every mealtime. If you expect exceptional care and community, you’ll find nothing left to ask for, at the Wellington.

You can visit a hair salon and barbershop, replete with barber’s pole; a library, a bistro, the Vineyard dining, and a chapel round out services you’d expect “downtown.” A unique sense of familiarity and comfort comes out of this, even for those who grew up in a city. Everything is right here.

Abbotsford, British Columbia
       

  • This is a spectacular lifestyle choice, for any Greater Vancouver Seniors looking for a change that’s indeed worth making! This luxury building offers bountiful features, affordably situated in the suburb of Abbotsford. Even the safety precautions in place here are striking! For example, there’s 24 hour fall monitoring, with a concierge and other staff on hand. All of that comes at a price that’s very reasonable compared to similar options closer to downtown.

It’s communal living with heart and soul.

  • From our perspective as a third party observer of all retirement communities across Canada, Douglas Crossing ticks all the boxes of what a great retirement home should provide. This is a setting that opens up new possibilities for people, nothing whatsoever like preconceptions some people have about retirement homes. For Uxbridge Township and area seniors and families who want the best in life, retirement living doesn’t get any better than this. Move in here and you’ll feel free to be the person you’ve had in the back of your mind lately, not the one who is dealing with “too much” yard and too much house.
