Reviews of Retirement Suites By The Lake

Gain exclusive insight into life at Retirement Suites By The Lake. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

A very modern facility conveniently close enough to the heart of Toronto but situated most closely to Scarborough Bluffs. With a smaller number of suites than some other residences, it creates a close-knit community. The Bluffs are one of the best natural settings in the entire GTA, with spectacular views of Lake Ontario., and there's also Scarborough Heights Park and the spectacular flora of Rosetta McClain Park.

Living at the Suites, you can choose to partake of "just enough" activities, as listed on the calendar. There are shared activities ranging from crafts to board games to just sitting out on the patio in summer, chatting with friends. That atmosphere is casual, though, and if you want to spend time reading or watching Netflix in your suite, you can do that, too. Suites are all spacious private units.

Delicious meals are served in the bistro, with table service available, as well as consideration of special diets. Care on hand includes a 24 hour call system, and all housekeeping needs are taken care of for you. The Wellness Department works closely with residents to tailor care to individual requirements. Activities range from regular arts and crafts time to special events like a Christmas Bazaar. The location of the home makes it very appealing for family of all ages to stop in and visit. It's an exceptional retirement home with heart!

Ellen Worling, senior

Went for a tour today. Highly impressed with both Diane Shaddock, the Community Engagement Manager and the staff we met. Diane provided us with so much information to help in our decision process. She is kind and compassionate. She had suggestions on room location, ideas to help with transition and was a very positive person. We left feeling WOW!

Aneisha Gooden, family member

I was looking for a short term stay for my father who is undergoing knee surgery and although we ultimately decided to go somewhere closer to home, we still had an amazing experience with the staff. Diane gave us a tour and her energy was magnetic. She was so personable, funny, welcoming and enthusiastic. The other staff were also just as friendly and made this home a real joy to visit. Thanks to Scarborough Retirement Suites by the Lake, my family and I really enjoyed our visiting experience and should we ever need full time care, this is definitely a home we will strongly consider.

Susan Clancy, family member

What a lovely homelike facility. The staff here work together like family and that vibe permeated all the interactions I had in making preparations for my mum to reside here for a respite stay. Despite the complications I encountered in completing the necessary requirements I felt supported in every step. Diane in particular made sure we had everything we needed, and her patient and kind guidance was so very appreciated at a stressful time. Cassandra was still helping me on the phone long after she had left work for the day. I look forward to the next time I need help with mums care while I am away. I need look no further than RSBL.

Linda Ramsay, senior

My two week stay at “Retirement Suites By the Lake” was beyond my expectations. I was at “ The Spa” ( as I liked to call it ) to recuperate from a knee replacement and was met with supportive and caring attention by all the staff . My suite was immaculate, the food delicious, but most importantly, the concern , compassion and encouragement for my well being , by everyone involved , was over whelming . A special thanks to Diane and Cassandra , who made the arrangements for my stay , and subsequently my two week visit , so enjoyable .
