Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Through the beginning of the 2020’s, Greenwood Retirement Communities has garnered raves across its communities for its handling of coronavirus, demonstrating its diligence in both safety and care. Staff and administration across Greenwood communities are also singled out for praise, for their extraordinary commitment, and attention to seniors. Families and prospective residents of Winchester Glen will live in a community with a fulfilling lifestyle, where everyday is lived at full value.

The beautifully contemporary building design here is remarkable for its emphasis on natural lighting. The good life lived by residents here is spurred by onsite spa services, a salon, and full slate of daily activities. You can be as busy or as relaxed as you want to be. Seniors in this area of Oshawa will love the benefits of living in a community with others their own age, many from the area, who share both past experiences and present circumstances. It’s the right place to be.
