Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


In the heart of Hamilton there’s a place with heart. Staff and residents together make this an oasis of kindness and care. You see instances of this around the community as soon as you walk in. People are gathered around a table in the lounge, and other groups are found throughout the community, some sitting and chatting, others perhaps on their way out to do something together. It’s also strikingly diverse.

This is a community bringing progressive ideals to Hamilton’s downtown, an idea whose time has come: senior living as part of the area's progressive renewal. Caroline Place combines fun and activity on the exterior with a vibrant life inside. Sure, there’s lots to do downtown: shopping, lunch at one of the many cafes, the Farmer’s Market and the library, all a short walk away. But Caroline Place is its own little cozy community of friendship and freedom. There’s exceptional dining, a design that incorporates a 24-hour café, a fitness center, and several lovely dining areas and lounges. It immediately feels like a great place to live.
