Beyond our proximity to great neighbourhood amenities, one of the most appreciated aspects of our peace of mind lifestyle is our flexible, independent living services. Our care options are customized to your individual needs and preferences and may include services such as medication management, assistance with your morning or evening routine, an escort to meals, and much more. We have tenured staff on-site 24/7 to support you, as well as an on-site nurse.

An active, vibrant setting

The personality of our home can be described as active, engaging, and friendly, as we're a place where you can focus on the people and pursuits that bring you the most joy in life. You'll find our residents conversing over a cup of coffee in the bistro, laughing over a card game, keeping fit in an exercise class, leafing through a book in our library, or going on outings with friends. There's also our stunning outdoor patio with comfortable seating, where you can take in lovely views of our mature trees in nice weather and go for a peaceful stroll along our walking paths. You choose how each day is based on how you want to live in your retirement years.
