Our Perspective

How we see New Horizons Tower

This place is optimal for seniors in the heart of Toronto who want to enjoy the finest senior living in a friendly, happy community. Since New Horizons is a charitable organization, costs are reasonable in spite of its premium location, the beautiful building, and the exemplary care given. Built over 40 years ago, it has undergone several recent renewals and improvements. It's the best of all possible worlds, combining rich experience in senior living and care with contemporary accessibility design and building amenities, in the heart of this world-class city.

A well-established, premium quality retirement residence in Bloordale Village, in the heart of Toronto, New Horizons is a not-for-profit offering exceptional facilities. Care ranges from independent and assisted living to memory care. Extra care services onsite include a visiting physiotherapist and chiropodist.

The residence features gorgeously well-appointed suites, especially in the newly renovated Oasis. Suites are designed with the latest in accessibility features, including ample space throughout, walk-in showers and other features. They range from studio size to 2 bedroom apartments. On top of all of that, there's a beauty salon and cafe and other amenities right in the building, while you can walk outside to find the full wealth of downtown Toronto conveniences. It creates a right-sized world for seniors, giving them all they need and much more.

Community’s Perspective

How New Horizons Tower sees itself

Who are you as a community?

New Horizons Tower is a seniors community excelling in accommodation and services inspired by a foundation of love, hope and faith. NHT has established a legacy as one of the City's not-for-profit senior housing providers since 1974, committed to reinvesting in the community we serve to enhance and enrich the lives of seniors who choose to live in the heart of Bloordale Village. From gracious dining to new suites and lounges, residents are thriving at 1140 Bloor Street West.

  • Opened in: 1974
  • Ownership: Non-profit.
  • Languages Spoken: English

What do you do differently or uniquely well?

As a Not For Profit, New Horizons Tower is uniquely situated to recommit and reinvest all resources back into the community - offering enhanced dining, a spotless community, additional activities programming, high staffing levels, and continue to improve with renovations and upgrades.

Residents (and their guests!) look forward to meals and special dinners at NHT, though many choose the location for the easy access and walkability of Bloordale Village. Walk-out to shopping on Bloor, and steps from the TTC, Dufferin Mall, Bloor Gladstone Library and Dufferin Grove park!

What supports do you offer residents as they adjust to life there?

Many residents touring and moving to NHT are living independently; driving, travelling, shopping and cooking. No matter how independent you are, we recognize that any move is a big deal! Our Marketing Manager is here to guide you through the touring, application and moving process and can recommend additional resources.

Once you've arrived there are orientation goals and introductions to the features of your suite, community and other residents. We try to anticipate new resident-concerns but help is an open door or phone-call away!

But what we most often hear after someone moves is how warm and welcoming their neighbours are! Residents even formed their own committee with the goal of welcoming and orienting new residents to NHT.

How are residents supported if their needs change?

New Horizons Tower has not responded to this question yet.

Under what conditions would you advise someone against choosing your community?

New Horizons Tower has not responded to this question yet.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

Residents choose NHT for straight forward reasons. Location, inherent advantage of a not-for-profit, an active-living community; and proactively for additional services and a continuum of care. They may have already tried a lunch or dinner and look forward to the dining experience.

They expect a clean building, quality dining, fitness, concerts&lectures, perhaps a choir, gaming or gardening group, and access to additional staff and wellness resources.

What surprises new residents is not the community's building and services, but the community of residents and staff. New friendships, belonging, and home.

The community that has developed at 1140 Bloor Street West is active, diverse, tolerant and vibrant, and above all, welcoming.

How will your community change in the next five years?

Insider Perspectives

Reviews of New Horizons Tower

What residents and their loved ones say about New Horizons Tower in reviews.

Bonnie Henry, resident

"We moved here from Sault Ste. Marie and we're glad we did. Everything is designed and built and planned for seniors, so that they have just a splendid time here. They have a wellness centre, and with my nursing background, that impressed me. It includes a doctor and a nurse practitioner, with nurses on staff. If you ever have an emergency, you can get help. There's also a closeness to many facilities required by older people. Without even using a bus, we've got banking, a tremendous library just..."

Judith MacLeod, family member

"We are so glad that our mother had the good fortune to live at New Horizons Tower for 8 years. The care she received was kind, compassionate and attentive throughout the time that she lived there, which included the pandemic. Everyone was exemplary and fulfilled their responsibilities with care and thoughtfulness. It was a true home for our mother and a blessing for which we are all grateful. I highly recommend this retirement residence without hesitation."

Mark, family member

"My father has been living there for almost 4 years ... and we could not be happier with the caring and supportive staff and administrators, the great programs and activities they offer and the wonderful homemade food they serve!"
