COVID-19 Information

All four Symphony Senior Living properties are completely COVID-19 free, we have been since the beginning of the pandemic in mid-March. We managed to stay this way because of our extremely dedicated staff and management teams along with our early implementation of safety guidelines!
Our properties have been keeping our friends and families up to date on Facebook with all our activities we've been doing to keep our residents engaged. Staff, managers, and residents have all showcased talents and found a way to have fun while being in quarantine. At the moment, we are not allowing any non-essential visitors so we set up Zoom accounts in every property so family members can connect with their loved ones virtually. We host virtual events and post on our social media daily.

We are now safety accepting new residents into our homes. The guidelines are as follows:
- Negative COVID test within 24 hours prior to admission
- Mandatory 14-day isolation period
- One time companionship fee for residents with dementia.

Call us today and schedule a virtual tour! We'd love to have you.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

This is a beautiful, friendly, lo-rise seniors' community in the rapidly growing suburb of Orleans, ideally located in greenspace close to the Ottawa River. For seniors looking to forget about housework, cooking and the like, or who need help with some daily activities like feeding or dressing, this is a worthwhile destination.

Symphony Senior Living offers a variety of kitchenette styles from which to choose, so you can customize your living experience. Care offered ranges up to assisted living, with housekeeping, dressing and feeding included. This home is also pet-friendly, following from an established idea that having pets provides comfort and improves overall well-being of owners.

This community rightfully prides itself on its ability to help seniors and families transition into retirement living, by connecting people with a variety of local moving, and other services. There's also a concerted effort to accommodate people's needs... even quirks and foibles, if you have those. Those who give it a try are soon very happy to call this place "home."
