Our Perspective

How we see The Camelot

The Camelot is ideal for people who want something more intimate in a retirement residence, offering a cozily private community of peers. Among Victoria retirement homes, this is a unique, boutique-style community. You can come and go as you please, with a ready set of companions and friends living in the same building. Set in a quiet residential neighbourhood, people who are more introspective or artsy may find this to be a comfortable way to settle into retirement living.

For all its intimacy and comfort, the Camelot offers the accoutrements you might expect from a larger retirement home. Housekeeping and dishes are taken care of here, care staff is on hand, there’s a full service dining room with table service, and a daily schedule of activities. There’s also a reading room and a landscaped yard with a gazebo, adding to the peaceful moments made possible.

We especially like the suites here, with every apartment featuring a private balcony or patio. Even one-bedroom suites are exceptionally roomy, with kitchens in an open-concept style. It’s all together ideal for people seeking the security of a retirement home in a peaceful setting.
