Our Perspective

How we see The Meadows of Aurora

In a few short years, The Meadows of Aurora has created a mid-rise village of people who share both faith- and age-related values. It’s rightfully described as a “lovely community” that’s “caring and joyful.” The Meadows has carved out an idyllic lifestyle set in the countryside near Aurora, perfect for older Christians from the area, or those with family near here. Here, you can share life and moments together with like-minded, faith-oriented people.

There’s so much we like about The Meadows of Aurora. These are beautiful buildings set in a newly built neighbourhood surrounded by rich greenspace, including ponds and walking trails. While it’s only an hour away from the cultural mecca of Toronto, you don't need to go anywhere to enjoy every moment of life. Onsite there are recreation facilities, a wellness center and fitness studio, store, and fun activities. Newly added amenities include a library, bistro, and more.

The ultimate vision at work here, though, is the creation of a holistically caring community, one that includes an aging-in-place philosophy combined with a commitment to faith. Propagation of a Christian community includes staff as well as neighbours, in a setting that stewards Creation. If you’re looking for a fitting way to live out your golden years it’s hard to imagine anything better.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

Following a church service in 2004, sitting around the kitchen table at a member’s home, several couples gathered to discuss the idea of a new faith-based retirement community. The vision was to provide seniors in the Aurora area an opportunity to remain close to church, family, friends and healthcare. Six years after the start of the development process, groundbreaking took place. Two years later, the first residents took possession of their new home. Today, The Meadows of Aurora is one of the largest and most modern retirement residences in Canada.

What five facts about your community should people know?

1. 391 modern independent living condos with full kitchen and balcony.
2. 60 assisted living suites on a private club-like floor.
3. 20 memory care rooms in a safe and secure space.

Reviews of The Meadows of Aurora

What residents and their loved ones say about The Meadows of Aurora in reviews.

Rin VanHemert, resident

"It’s hard to say how many new friends we’ve made since moving here. After you get to see people a couple of times it seems like everybody is your friend. Walking is a big thing here. Right behind the phase 2 building, there’ s a pond that’s really nice. They put a paved around it with benches and lights and umbrellas. You can’t walk around that pond too often without meeting new people from the new building. We get to know people there and do our best to make them feel welcome. We’ve..."

Rich Smallwood, family member

"My mom has just just moved into the Woodland Towers, independent living section. The staff here are amazing and extremely helpful. The grounds outside are very well kept and the inside amenities are second to none. We were even able to watch the wild turkey wander around the grounds. The building has lots of finer details and she is very happy with her decision to move here. The sunsets from the 7th floor are absolutely amazing."

Derrick L, family member

"Awesome place! My parents just love it. There are so many friendly people. Everyone looks after each other."
