    Independent living

    If you consider yourself independent and active, or you require light-to-moderate care services, our retirement suites with flexible services may be the right fit for you! In addition to valuable inclusions like delicious dining, housekeeping, access to all activities, amenities and outings, and transportation services, you can elect to benefit from support services such as medication management, assistance with your morning or evening routine, and much more.

  • Assisted living

    If you or a loved one require higher levels of daily care to live well, or are living with dementia, our dedicated assisted living neighbourhood may be the most comfortable place to call home in our retirement residence. There, you’ll be able to regularly access our health care staff, benefit from dedicated dining and activity spaces, and receive more daily attention. Possible services may include medication monitoring and administration, assistance with your morning and evening routine, bathing and showering assistance, an escort to meals and activities, memory care services, and much more.

  • Memory care

    If you or a loved one require a higher level of support because you are living with dementia, we offer memory care suites in a secure, dedicated neighbourhood of our retirement community too. There, your loved one will be attended to by compassionate staff trained on how to care for people living with cognitive impairment. In addition to a variety of memory care services meant to enhance comfort and quality of life, specialized life enrichment programming is also offered in dedicated amenity spaces to help you or your loved one live a good day, every day.

We’re here to help you or a loved one understand your options and which service level will be the right fit for you. Our Health & Wellness Manager will also conduct an assessment before you move in to ensure you’re receiving the right level of care for your unique needs and preferences.
