OPAL represents an exciting new vision in senior care, offering superior senior living, with an upscale modern design and up-to-the minute technology, in an intergenerational living environment. This building, the flagship of Element Lifestyle Retirement Inc., has excited us here at Comfort Life, since we first heard about it in 2016.



Opened in June 2020, OPAL by Element incorporates all of the best elements of contemporary senior living. Amenities and services include chef-prepared meals, an onsite spa and beauty salon, an interior pub, rooftop patios, and an ongoing list of other features. The design includes 30,000 square feet of very unique innovations indoor and outdoor. These include a rock salt wall for yoga exercises and tai chi, a full-service wellness spa for daily rejuvenation, and an interior IT centre. Versatile care staff and facilities provide a complete continuum of care, from independent living to memory care and long term care.

For all those impressive features, the front and centre attraction here is dining and culinary features. OPAL offers an in-house program where residents can engage in cooking classes taught by the executive chef onsite. There will also be a communal table for dining with larger groups of friends, as well as private dining and living rooms. The variety of authentic cuisine ranges from ethnic dishes like aburi sashimi and sushi, to a menu of locally supplied farm-to table foods. In addition to the great food, there are wine tastings, a water bar with fruit and herb infusions, and a High Tea Service.
