Reviews of The Village of Winston Park

Gain exclusive insight into life at The Village of Winston Park. Comfort Life’s exclusive reviews and videos give you insider information from residents and their families.

Our perspective

Winston Park will revise your ideas about senior living homes. Lively, clean, spacious, friendly, caring… there are many more superlatives that could be added. Schlegel houses approximately 2500 seniors across the province of Ontario, working closely with the Research Institute for Aging in Waterloo. They are at the forefront of senior care in Ontario, and their forward thinking shines through at Winston Park.

Winston Park is a vibrant community of seniors that (like other Schlegel Villages) creates an idealized small town under one roof. Walk into Winston Park in the middle of the day, or on a Saturday morning, and you will be struck by the amount of activity and interaction among the "villagers." These people know how to live! Inside the "village" you will find a general store, a restaurant, a gift shop, a library and a gym… all of them with signage and separate entrances. People walk from shop to shop, greet friends by name and chat up the local "shopkeepers."

Suites are clean and modern, hallways are wide and clean. The people are happy and friendly, because the environment engenders community and contentment. In keeping with the village theme, discrete care areas are called neighbourhoods.  Winston Park includes a memory care neighbourhood, as well as a long term care ward. Every day in the village "commons," residents greet each other with smiles.
