COVID-19 Information

At all times we must follow the guidelines set forth by the local provincial health authority. In many cases we implement safety initiatives before the governments mandates them. While we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to keep our communities safe, it does alter the way we connect with the outside community.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Downsview, Willowdale and North York seniors find the option of pure elegance in Forestview Retirement Residence. This is a community that takes its interest in your needs and concerns to a whole new level. The community offers a continuum of care from independent to assisted living to memory care, coupled with luxurious care that includes unique daily dining experiences, and a bistro and juice bar.

Management of health care is, of course, a central concern, and inside, you'll find registered health care practitioners, as well as assistance with activities of daily living. This community also welcomes post-surgery and other short stays. For all that, no words can capture the peace of mind and personal warmth you'll find in this community. Opened in 2017, this community combines experience and completely contemporary values in construction and design to create a happy, fresh environment. Forestview meets seniors' needs, certainly, but seeks to enhance your life beyond any expectations you might have.
