Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

From its inception, The Dunfield has proposed to reach new heights in retirement living in the city of Toronto. In the years since, it has succeeded remarkably well, not only in its well-appointed facilities but in the seniors' community it has facilitated. It's in a prime location, near the corner of Yonge and Eglinton, matched by first rate amenities and features, including a spa, movie theatre, wellness centre and so much more.

One of the best things about the Dunfield is the sense of community created by shared activities both inside and out. Residents take day trips to the theatre, casino, shopping, and art galleries. In addition, a big part of residents’ life is the collection of in-house activities: a lecture series with local authors, visiting chefs, art classes, and so much more. This is one of several exceptional Toronto retirement residences that improves the health and well-being of members, beginning the moment they walk in the door.
