In 1988, Caretenders Retirement Living was founded. Since its inception, the company has established a very successful track record of operating and developing 13 comfortable retirement communities. These homes are located mainly in British Columbia, and Ontario, with some also in Arizona. One of our newest facilities opened in Armstrong, BC, in the Autumn of 2011. Some of the other residences besides Queens Avenue include Kelowna, BC and Belleville, Ontario.
The philosophy behind Caretenders’ is to offer facility residents something unique, as opposed to being similar to the large-scale retirement homes and their “cookie-cutter” molds. As reflected of the Queens Avenue residence, every one of our buildings has been specifically tailored to their surroundings in order to reflect the heart of the greater community. Every aspect of a Caretenders’ facility is completely adapted to interact with the general feel of the surrounding community in order to make the residents feel like they never actually left their own home. For example, familiar details include the overall style of the building, the menu and the staff, the services and the landscaping.
Caretenders will be bringing this philosophy to all of their upcoming projects in the future. They are planning to specifically target smaller communities in order for seniors to have the possibility of staying close to their home base as their needs for care change. This “close to home” approach makes the entire transition to a retirement home much easier for seniors since they can easily remain close to their friends and family and continue to be active in any community groups that they are involved in.
