Choose the lifestyle that suits you best

We offer 2 distinct lifestyle options as well as 2 short-term stay options. Each comes with a host of services that can be tailored to meet individual needs. With every option, residents can be certain that they will be living in a safe and secure community designed to help them live life to the fullest.


Ideal for active and independent people who are ready to leave the worries of home ownership to others. The monthly rent includes your suite and access to all the amenities of the community. There’s no housework because we do the cleaning, and meals are served in the dining room. Take advantage of the programs and a full agenda of social activities. And of course, pets are always welcome.


This option is perfectly suited to residents who enjoy their independence but can benefit from an added layer of support and care. Whether it’s a little help getting around, or a hand with daily activities that are harder to do on your own now, our team members are committed to helping residents retain their independence and well-being.


Short-term stays provide all of the advantages of living in a retirement community without having to make a move. Staying in one of our furnished suites is an excellent way for you to look at your options and get a feel for living in a retirement community.

It’s also an excellent option when caregivers are travelling or need some time for themselves. We’ll take over for just a while until you’re back and ready to go.


Designed for seniors who are recovering from surgery or illness, our convalescent care option provides a level of care that is difficult or expensive to get at home. It gives you the peace of mind and confidence that you, or your loved one, will be well cared for during recovery in a safe and comfortable setting.

Residents can access a broad selection of services all designed to help make retirement everything you want it to be. You worked hard, you deserve this!
