Comfort Life Review

stories

An exceptional luxury retirement residence that supersedes all expectations of a retirement home. Spacious corridors and shared areas are highlighted by an open concept main area where there's a pub, games room and more. You'll love the thoroughly modern, well-kept interior spaces at the Westhill; it feels new everywhere.

For those requiring care, there are personalized support services onsite, and staff at the ready to handle anything you require. The downstairs pub is a great meeting place, and dining in the bistro is exceptional. One other noteworthy aspect of this Waterloo retirement home is the variety in the suites, which range from studio apartments to 1 bedroom plus a den, to 2 bedroom suites.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Never a dull moment

    The people here are very friendly and when I arrived I had a great resident mentor who invited me to things and got me involved in all the activities, allowing me to meet other residents. My family really enjoys their visits. My grandchildren and I have gone to exercise classes, we’ve enjoyed family dinners in the dining room and my daughter joins me for the theatre excursions. My children even come to the bar on Friday’s to have a drink with me!

  • An Easy Transition

    One of my favourite activities at The Westhill are brain games,they keep your mind sharp and challenged. There is always so much going on here, it’s sort of like living on a cruise ship! Bank runs and The Boardwalk loop are so convenient and the staff feels like family! Without question, I would recommend The Westhill to others. It’s a great place to live and my transition was so easy.”
