Our Perspective

How we see Parkland Ajax

Parkland Ajax offers a unique opportunity for seniors to get into a community that will improve life on every level, creating an experience you won’t find elsewhere, especially living on your own. Shannex locations across the GTA encourage lifestyles that people love. Parkland Ajax is state-of-the-art senior living, rife with amenities, of course, but it will also give seniors a life more fully lived.

Certainly, Parkland Ajax is luxury high rise living, designed and built for seniors. The amenities list here is rich, including concierge service, fitness studio, spa services, a hairdresser, in-house movie theatre, with lots of fun activities, from bocce, bingo, and shuffleboard, to arts and crafts. But Shannex knows how to go below the surface.

At other locations in the GTA, they have a knack for hiring excellent staff passionate about working with seniors and turning every day into an enjoyable learning experience. Surrounded by enthusiastic staff and like-minded seniors, you’ll find that your everyday passion for life blossoms anew. People in Parkland communities talk about broadening and continuing personal growth into their 80’s, 90’s, and beyond.

This daily personal growth is encouraged by the excellent dining options here, as well as the emphasis on health and wellness programs. Dining features daily culinary creations, prepared by an in-house chef and always made with fresh ingredients. They also keep the menu fresh, updated weekly, while giving attention to personal preferences, allergies, and dietary restrictions. There’s also a focus on health and other programs that meet seniors’ needs. You can learn new things, deepen your spirituality with yoga and tai chi, take part in volunteer activities, and more. In other words, there’s a focus on the whole person inside Parkland Ajax.

The contemporary construction of the building focuses on attention to detail, especially in the suite finishes and the senior-friendly design for accessibility as well as elegance and luxury. Suites are extra spacious with generous natural lighting. All of this works together to make seniors’ daily experience of life special. It’s truly made for them. In a location like this, everyone quickly becomes comfortable. That’s certain to create a wonderful community that you can help mold. We expect Parkland Ajax to be a place that seniors will be proud to call home, in a community they’ll love being part of.

Staff & Care

General Manager's Message
Lisa Benjamin

With a background in nursing and over 12 years of experience working in the sector, Parkland Ajax General Manager Lisa Benjamin was always passionate about helping others live their best life. “I like to help people – that’s why I wanted to become a nurse. When I started working in retirement, I was thinking, ‘I’ll be here for a minute or two’ and just fell in love with it. Whether it’s their stories or lovely families, it’s a privilege to be a part of their life every day,” said Lisa.

Since 1988, Parkland has been delivering unparalleled service excellence in beautifully designed, vibrant, and safe retirement communities and Lisa is prepared to ensure residents are well cared for, loved ones are informed and that it’s an enjoyable place to live, work and visit. “I’m looking forward to getting to know residents, their families and team members,” said Lisa “Together, we’ll all form Parkland Ajax. The building is there, but the people are what really make it special. I’m very excited to see it all come together.”
