Gain exclusive insight into life at Sifton - Dorchester Terrace. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

The Terrace is ideal for London and area seniors who are still active and want the very latest in senior living accommodations. The newness of this community is wonderful, found in the spaciousness of the lobby and the bright open feel created by the expansive windows. The contemporary feel extends to personal suites and their features like generous closet space, French doors, and individual temperature control.

A brand new London-area retirement community, Dorchester Terrace offers lo-rise senior living in a perfectly-sized community. It's a full-service community with a number of unexpected luxuries, including an in-house movie theatre, spa, and hair salon. Living here, you can let someone else worry about housekeeping and laundry while you choose to participate in daily activities or just relax.

The variety of suite sizes coupled with the many features and amenities makes this an exceptional community. Everyday fun stuff includes a games room with billiards, a party room with its own kitchen, and outdoor courtyards where you can relax in the sun with friends. There are many regularly scheduled daily and monthly events on the rec calendar. For casual or quieter times, you can get books out of the in-house library or enjoy the greenspace of the Thames Valley. Dorchester on the Thames Golf Club is only a short hike away.

With its location on the outskirts of London (minutes from the 401), there's pleasant farm country in one direction and the conveniences of London in the other. If you have family in London or elsewhere throughout southwestern Ontario, take a closer look at this community.

I have never regretted my decision to move here. I love the rural country feel. Dorchester Terrace is such a welcoming place of friendship and community.

Before calling Dorchester Terrace my home, I lived in Windsor Ontario. I'm 92 years old and had lost interest in being in my home – tired of cooking and baking and everything that went into being a homeowner. I looked for my new home for about two years! My son suggested I search closer to him and my daughter-in-law who live in Belmont. Being closer to them was extremely important to me.

There were quite a few things that helped me make the decision to move to Dorchester Terrace, the first being that it feels like living at a 5-star hotel – I feel like I'm living at the Ritz! Being a brand new residence, everything is fresh and new. I love the layout of my suite, closets and French doors, the amenities, individual temperature control, air conditioned hallways and the brightness that shines through my windows. I wish I had made the move sooner; I should have been here four years ago! No more garden to care for, home repairs to be looked after or cooking to be done.

The entrance to Dorchester Terrace is beautiful and was such a lovely surprise. Chandeliers, lots of windows and bright open space, and then there's the private dining room! There is so much to enjoy here, including; crafts, euchre, coffee club, bingo and the fitness centre. One piece of advice I would give to others looking for a retirement option is to move while you can still participate! Be ready to get your legs and mind moving and enjoy your health. When my family comes to visit I love to show off my new home and go to the Bistro for lunch.

The downsizing process was overwhelming. I had spent 62 years in my past home so my daughter helped me go room to room and decide what was important to me. From there I sent things home with my other family members. Dorchester Terrace gave me information about moving companies as well, but luckily I was prepared and ready to go thanks to my family. My brand new suite is everything I could want, it's close to everything but tucked out of site.
