Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Carp Commons allows people to retire in this lovely, heavily-rural area, west of the hustle and bustle of Ottawa proper. It’s also a growing area, of course, and this community is one of many developments happening. This will be an ideal destination for people from throughout Eastern Ontario who want to be close to family in Kanata and the west end of Ottawa. We think it will also appeal to people from throughout Ottawa Region who want a respite from the traffic and noise of the city.

This mid-rise promises to deliver on Verve’s philosophy of making every day great. Seniors who are still independent but no longer want to live alone will find their enthusiasm for life rekindled here. It’s a perfect solution for people who have had enough of cooking solo meals and want to make their own decisions about where and how they live.

Independent seniors will find a home on the top floors’ private residential units, where you can choose to come downstairs to participate in activities (of which there will be many, we assure you). You'll also be able to relax in the spa, take a meal in the dining room or see what’s happening in the games room. We’ve seen before that this is the kind of residence that encourages seniors to make a whole new group of friends.
