    Read Our Review

    (click for more)

    This residence combines proximity to the heart of Toronto, with a down-home feel, due to its being family owned. This is a relatively small community where people care for each other; residents have the option of being as open or as private as they want to be. You can take retirement living for a test drive, thanks to short term and respite care stays. Security is provided through overnight staff.

    Chef-prepared meals, physiotherapy and daily enrichment programs are just some of the home's features that make life here especially great. The community extends care holistically through onsite spiritual programming. The pet-friendly environment has also been shown to have benefits for psychological wellbeing. Group outings include movies and day visits to a variety of attractions.
