Reviews of Park Place Seniors' Suites & Retirement Residence

Gain exclusive insight into life at Park Place Seniors' Suites & Retirement Residence. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Perhaps the best thing about Park Place is the location, so close to downtown Ottawa. There are gardens outside, parks not far away, and the nearby Experimental Farm is a unique part of the community's environment. Not far away, there are shopping centres and restaurants, then the downtown core and the many sights to see and things to do there. People love the very wide range of services that are available both within Park Place and close by.

Built in 2003, this is a lo-rise community of bright, spacious modern seniors' suites. Walk inside and you'll find a truly vibrant, friendly community of people living a safe, quality lifestyle. Suites are spacious, well-designed and well-lit, equipped with kitchens and tastefully decorated living rooms; there is a range of sizes, from studio to 2 bedroom apartments. Care ranges to assisted living, with some health services like medication administration and bathing assistance included.

There are many luxurious features to love. There are movie nights inside the main floor theatre. The Main Dining Room features a grand piano where a sing-along might break out at any time of the day. The friendly hairdresser is available every week in the onsite beauty salon. There's also a games room, party room, weekly shopping trips and much more to do. Fresh homemade food is served daily.

Alison Chen, family member

Food is wonderful and the staff really care for my grandma. I see the compassion and patience they give all the residents here and it gives me great peace of mind. The staff remembers small things like making sure my grandma has a bib when she’s eating or giving her warm water instead of cold. Thank you all so much! You are so appreciated.

Gwen Boyles, resident

Living in a retirement home gives you more freedom, more things to do, more people to be with. Since I came to Park Place, I meet people every day, my apartment is huge, there is a pond to walk around, the experimental farm is beside me, I have a patio and face the street so I am living in a housing community, stores are near me, I could not ask for more! [And the staff here] are so kind, they can’t meet your needs enough. If you were in there you would say WOW, the staff does everything they can for you.

Mary Sardelis, family member

My mother resides in this home and I can’t say enough good things. The food is great, the care is amazing but the most important thing is how they’re handling COVID.
After they noticed the effect of March lockdown on seniors, they realize [that] family are what will get seniors through the pandemic.
Myself and my brothers have visited and cared for our mother every day since late April. Other seniors’ families are also allowed to care for their seniors.
We are provided with PPE, Hand sanitizers, everything. They know family have every right to enter their loved one's home. Park Place follows the directives and Resident Bill of Rights.

Christopher Porter, family member

My sister in law lives there. Modern and well maintained.

Danny Clarke, family member

My mother recently moved in and it's been fantastic for the first month. Nothing but great things to say. Highly recommended for somebody taking the step onto the next chapter of their lives.

Fernande & Ginette Forgues, family member

We would like to thank Alavida Lifestyles, Park Place, for the professional care and services we received when our 95-year old father was in Respite Convalescent Care after an oral surgery. All staff we dealt with – the nurses, the personal care attendants, the cook, the administrative and senior staff, were exceptional, attentive to special needs, accommodating and congenial. Listening to long-term residents' comments confirmed our experience, as they expressed how the services, social activities, choice of food and great atmosphere in Park Place influence their life in a positive manner. The adjacent park also contributes to a serene environment.

Dalton McIntyre, resident

My wife and I visited ten different residences before choosing Park Place; that was two and a half years ago and we have no regrets.

Kay Barrett, resident

Park Place is well maintained, has pleasant and helpful staff, and a good atmosphere; it's a good place to live.

Peggy, resident

[Since moving here] the years have been great. It's a great way to live ... you have all your meals and entertainment. In the winter on a miserable day, we have a pool party! As people get older they should be with other people. And there are so many nice new people coming in that you can relate to because they're your age.
