Our Perspective

How we see Symphony Senior Living Kanata

For Kanata and area seniors who require assisted living or are in the middle stages of Alzheimer's Disease, Symphony offers the very finest in senior care and accommodations. Registered practical nurses and personal support workers are onsite around the clock.

It's the right place to be for those who can no longer handle personal challenges on their own or through family caregiving. For seniors who need assistance with some daily tasks of living, this provides a community of peers. Being with others "in the same boat" is helpful! There is interaction through games and other activities, entertainment offered onsite, and an outdoor patio/gathering place that's lovely in summer.

It's a vibrant community where people interact with each other in a healthy manner, encouraging healing, improvement, and independence. Residents receive professional assistance with problems of everyday living like bathing, dressing, transfer and incontinence, and memory care provides dementia patients with safety and comfort. Symphony also welcome respite care stays and trial stays.

Many onsite amenities and features (beauty salon, wellness center, theatre, and more) add to the positive environment here. The hairdresser is very attentive and female residents feel great delight in having their hair styled regularly. Suites are well-appointed, well-maintained, clean and brightly lit. The chandeliered dining room makes dinner another delightful social experience. Seniors who move here feel a marked improvement in their outlook and wellbeing.

Symphony understands that food is a joyful and important part of life! Our residents can choose to enjoy three nutritious home-made meals daily, all prepared by our expertly trained chefs.

Each property has a private dining room that can be reserved for you to enjoy with family and friends. Entertain, relax, and socialize in style! Nutrition Nutrition can become a challenge when seniors live alone, sometimes losing interest in meals altogether. Problems with overall well-being can occur as a result. The opportunity to enjoy healthy, delicious meals without having to prepare them is a wonderful part of the dining experience at a Symphony community! Fresh creations are prepared daily by our talented executive chefs and dietary staff with a goal to prepare a variety of healthy meals and snacks without ever compromising taste!
