Condo-Style Living, Without the Condo Fees


There are lots of important decisions we have to make throughout our lives, but one of the biggest and often most emotionally charged is deciding where to spend our retirement years. No one wants to feel like they have to move, particularly when it means leaving the family home where you’ve made many happy memories over the years. That first emotional hurdle—deciding that a move is best for you and for your loved ones—is often the hardest. After that, the question is, “where do we move to?”

Condos often seem like a good next step when downsizing, and in many ways they are. Condo living means there’s no more snow to shovel, you have a much smaller space to maintain, and there are usually common areas like sitting rooms and maybe even a small gym that you can access.

The problem with condos for mature adults is that it can sometimes make life smaller. As far as space goes, that’s great—less to clean and maintain. But unless you are an outgoing person with no physical or health-related issues, meeting new people and getting involved in activities in your new community may not come easily.

Connecting is critical for both our mental and physical well-being, and so is finding a new, vibrant community to join when it’s time to leave your home.

That community may be easier to find than you think.

Opening in summer 2020, Parkland on Eglinton West in Toronto is turning the idea of traditional retirement living on its head by providing the kind of premium living experience that older Canadians crave—and deserve. With a Residents First philosophy paired with a dash of warm, Maritimes hospitality, this family owned and operated residence is unlike any other.

What makes it stand apart from other residences is that it’s focused on a culture of service. There’s virtually nothing they haven’t thought of in the design of this state-of-the-art lifestyle residence, and nothing they won’t do for the residents who will call it home. Access to world-class amenities such as a fitness centre, virtual reality entertainment centre, spa, heated pool, and multiple onsite restaurants is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s also all-day dining with no seating plans or restrictive dining hours, chauffeur and concierge services, in-suite washer and dryer, stainless steel appliances, private balconies, 24/7 emergency response should you ever need it, and a full calendar of wellness and social events to choose from so you can be as busy or as relaxed as you like.

There’s even a dog-wash station onsite, because of course your small pets are welcome here. They are family, after all.

Understanding that everyone’s needs are different, and that those needs can change over time, Parkland on Eglinton West offers Lifestyle Apartments, All-Inclusive Lifestyle suites and Supportive Lifestyle suites that offer assisted living and specialized memory care service. Regardless of which type of suite you choose, respect for your dignity, independence, and choice is always paramount, because the goal is to help you live life to the finest.

When you decide it’s time to downsize, it no longer has to be because you feel like you have to. Now it can be because you want to come home to Parkland on Eglinton West—Etobicoke’s newest state-of-the-art lifestyle residence.

If you’re interested in learning more about this community, Parkland will be hosting information sessions on April 1st and 2nd at the Islington Golf Club.
