Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


A very modern facility conveniently close enough to the heart of Toronto but situated most closely to Scarborough Bluffs. This retirement home features a smaller number of suites than some other residences, creating a close-knit community. The Bluffs are one of the best natural settings in the entire GTA, with spectacular views of Lake Ontario from the top.

Inside the Suites building, there are spacious private units where you can choose to partake of "just enough" activities, as listed on the calendar. Residents who are able can also stroll through Scarborough Heights Park or take in the spectacular local flora and other natural beauty at Rosetta McClain Park. Delicious meals are served in the bistro, with table service available, as well as consideration of special diets. Care on hand includes a 24 hour call system, and all housekeeping needs are taken care of for you.

There is a TTC bus stop right outside our door, Wheeltrans and taxi cabs currently transport many residents to and from their destinations and best of all - our shuttle bus runs several times throughout the month! When not driving to scheduled outings (theatre, casino, attractions, events etc.), our community bus will take residents to run errands in the area.
