No, retirement homes are focused around independence. Our retirement homes offer you many choices, including your choice of meals and meal plans, recreation and social activities, and the freedom to come and go as you please.

Much like an apartment or condo, different suites are available, depending on the retirement residence you’re considering. You’ll be able to choose from studios or one- or two-bedroom suites that may include a balcony, full-size kitchen, and more. Whatever your needs are, we’re confident there is a space that’s perfect for you.

Retirement living is a welcome, affordable option for seniors who no longer want to worry about the upkeep or expenses associated with maintaining their home. In a retirement home, you not only have a suite of your own that you’ve chosen, you have delicious meals, social activities, a thriving environment and the ability to let someone else think about mundane tasks like cleaning, so that you can focus on what matters most to you. You also have the comfort of knowing that you have access to the care and support you need to manage your health, through on-site or visiting care professionals. You can also choose to bring in private services, and there may be government-funded services you can access too.

When you choose to live in a retirement community, you also have the opportunity to choose which suite you like and which services and care options you need. All of these choices have an impact on how much you pay; for most seniors living at a retirement home, it works out to about $3,000–$5,500 per month. For those looking for a truly luxurious experience, we also have some retirement residences that cost more per month.

Our retirement residences are pet-friendly and welcome cats, small dogs, birds or fish. When you are touring the residence of your choice, be sure to ask if there are any specific restrictions. 

Staying connected to family and friends is important for your overall health. There are lots of common areas and private spaces where you can chat and entertain any time you like. We also host a variety of family-friendly events where anyone is welcome to join in the fun! Our residents are like family to us, and so are their loved ones.
