Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

The Terraces have recently (2020) added assisted living and memory floors to their community, fomenting the broadening of a vibrant community that also includes Two Neptune and more. It’s a very friendly environment, perfectly suited to people who’ve grown up in Toronto and want to deepen their connection with the larger Jewish community. The people here are enthusiastic about life together. This rubs off on staff, too, who often join in the fun. Once seniors settle in here, they really flourish, and family also appreciates the benefits of this community.

Suites have all been newly renovated, including a full kitchen and updated accessibility features, so it feels like it was made just for you, which it is. It’s an ideal way to make a new beginning. Given that Baycrest brings a long history of understanding seniors’ needs, expect their addition of assisted living to excel.
