So Many Reasons to Feel Good About Retirement Living


Close friends, exceptional dining, fun activities, care services and support. Retirement living enriches life in so many ways.

Choosing to move into a retirement residence is a big decision. From researching the available options, to downsizing your home, to knowing if you’re truly ready; there’s a lot to think about and many factors to consider. And you want to be sure that you’ll still enjoy the same level of freedom and independence you’ve always had. At Revera Retirement Living, that’s exactly what our residences pride themselves on.

We view getting older as the beginning of something new and the next stage of your life. An opportunity to live the life you want. And that’s something to be excited about.

John Beaney, Revera’s Senior Vice President of Retirement, leads the Retirement Living division. “Our team offers a lifestyle of independence, choice, security, and social engagement for about 10,000 seniors in 95 residences across Canada, including 59 in Ontario.” He says everyone works together to provide the most positive resident experience possible.

“We want to help each person understand their choices and live their life to the fullest.”

One of the biggest benefits of living in a Revera retirement residence is being part of a vibrant community. “Feeling alone or isolated is common when you’re living on your own. In many of our retirement residences, staff members are available 24/7 and your friends are nearby. We are here to ensure you stay connected to the people and the interests you love.”

The community of residents and staff at each Revera residence is what really makes it unique.

“There is a strong sense of community amongst the residents, staff, and families – and these connections are more important than ever.” Each Revera retirement residence has a Recreation program, which connects residents who share common interests and creates fun, safe activities based on those interests.

In addition to having a strong community and support system, there are many other benefits that you can enjoy from retirement living. Revera residences offer healthy menu choices to satisfy a wide range of tastes. And they’re always changing the menus to keep the options fresh and residents happy. “Our culinary teams are constantly reviewing and updating our menu, so you’ll always find something you love.” Plus, there are a variety of care and convenience services, from medical support to salon appointments. Our front-line workers are always happy to provide support when you need it.

Revera’s approach to wellness promotes more than just physical health

Revera’s approach to health and wellness is known as the Six Dimensions of Wellness, that covers all areas of care  – physical, social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and community engagement. This holistic approach helps to ensure the mind, body, and spirit are nurtured and cared for. “Our residents choose a lifestyle. They live a life of purpose and choose the environment that best meets their wants and needs.”
