Our Perspective

How we see The Dunfield Retirement Residence

The Dunfield is ideal for residents of the city who want to stay close to where the action is, or to family in the downtown core. You'll find happy new neighbours and friends at The Dunfield. In a city full of exceptional seniors' residences, the Dunfield rises higher. It remains a benchmark in high quality senior living in Downtown Toronto.

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.

Reviews of The Dunfield Retirement Residence

What residents and their loved ones say about The Dunfield Retirement Residence in reviews.

Carolyn Knight, family member

"My 85 year old Father moved into the Dunfield Residence November 2021. This was a very stressful time for him as he was leaving a toxic relationship and sadly leaving behind his beloved rescue animals. Catherine and the staff at the Dunfield made his transition incredibly smooth and positive. Since he has been at the Dunfield he has literally thrived. He has not been this happy or healthy for years! It took a little time but now he is participating in exercise and activities virtually everyday. ..."

Danielle Katz, family member

"My father has been living at the Dunfield Retirement Residence for a few years and we have been extremely pleased with the residence in all aspects of the building, facilities, staff, restaurant and administration. The general manager, James, is consistently supportive and helpful, doing whatever he can to meet our needs and address our questions/requests. The staff is friendly, inviting and helpful. We feel that our father is in excellent hands at the Dunfield and would recommend this residence..."

David Shaul, resident

"I have been a resident at The Dunfield for eleven years. The building is elegant, bright, cheerful and well maintained. The management and staff are the best! They know your name and make you feel at home in very short order. I love the food and you are not compelled to always sit at the same table at the same time. Residents needing extra care have access to special accommodation and the nursing station. I enjoy the activities. There is a gym, pool, theatre, multipurpose room for concerts, lect..."
