The Village of Winston Park Review
695 Block Line Road, Kitchener, Ontario, N2E 3K1
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. Hundreds of residents meet in the village "commons" every day and greet each other with smiles.
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.

It’s definitely not an institution. It’s a home!! [They care about] everyone that walks through the doors!
Meals and medical care provided. Beautiful grounds, [with] many social activities and events. Excellent retirement home.
My parents live here and enjoy it very much
[My mom was] here for 1 year. I cannot believe the compassion and love she was shown by the professional staff [here] … I would not hesitate to recommend this facility to any friends or family. The care and staff are second to none.
There's so much to do here!
