Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


This five-star boutique style, all-inclusive retirement community will outpace all typical expectations of a seniors' home. This home features all the luxury amenities you might have heard about elsewhere (such as an onsite pub, swimming pool, movie theatre) but combined with an exceptionally caring staff, right in the Town Centre.

The location of this retirement home adds to the appeal: close to downtown, with ample shopping, near the public library and a variety of health care services. The GO Station and other public transit are also nearby, and the residence is less than a minute off the 401.
