The goal at Caretenders Retirement Living is to offer residents of our retirement facilities a unique living experience. We have chosen to break away from the “mass-produced” appearance favoured by the large retirement home companies.
Caretenders has been developing and operating retirement communities since its founding in 1988. We have successfully established thirteen retirement communities in the provinces of British Columbia and Ontario, as well as in the state of Arizona. In addition to Queens Avenue, we currently operate residences in Belleville, Ontario, and Kelowna, BC. We celebrated the opening of a new facility in Armstrong, BC, in 2011.
The architecture of our buildings is designed to suit the local environment and respect the style of the surrounding community. Every touch, from the landscaping to the staff, services and meal menus, are meticulously planned to be in tune with the general feel of the surrounding community. Residents of Caretenders’ communities say they feel as if they never left their own home.
Caretenders is dedicated to bringing its philosophy to every new project. Future projects will target smaller communities to provide facilities accessible to retirees. We want retirees to have the opportunity to live in or close to their home community as their care needs evolve. The transition to a retirement home is much smoother if family and friends are nearby and seniors can maintain connections with their community groups.
Caretenders’ intention to keep seniors close to home is our way of caring for communities, both within our buildings and across the country.
