Our Perspective

How we see The Elden of Bradford

This appeals to people with progressive ideas about what a seniors’ retirement community ought to be like. Independently run, this community responds flexibly to the needs of residents. There’s an experimental aspect to this community that promises to make it open-ended in an ongoing basis, ideal for Bradford residents who are as progressive-minded as this retirement home's builders.

One of several new developments in the city of Bradford, this project offers a leading-edge development for seniors in the area. The Elden of Bradford offers superior independent living closer to home, for people who may have previously felt the need to move to Newmarket or even further into the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

While meals and housekeeping will be part of the services here, the Elden of Bradford is focused on building a vibrant community, as seen in higher quality seniors’ communities throughout the GTA.
