About Us

Revera is a leading owner, operator and investor in the senior living sector committed to helping older adults live life to the fullest. Through its portfolio of partnerships, Revera owns or operates more than 500 properties across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, offering seniors’ apartments, independent living, assisted living, memory care and long term care.
 
Revera’s vision is to celebrate the ageless spirit of people. Through a strategic focus on growth, innovation and leadership, the company strives to improve the aging experience of people in its communities.   
 
 

Age is More

Revera is committed to giving back through its community involvement program, Revera Giving. A key component of the program is Age is More, Revera’s initiative to challenge ageism—the negative attitudes, stereotypes and misconceptions that can prevent older people from living their lives to the fullest. Revera is also celebrating the lives of older adults through The Revera and Reel Youth Age is More Film Project.
 
Revera partnered with the International Federation on Aging to release the Revera Report on Ageism in 2012, which encompasses reports related to ageism and gender, tech-savvy seniors, love and romance, and happiness. In 2016, Revera teamed up with the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research on a follow up report, the Revera Report on Ageism: Independence and Choice As We Age, which highlights the impact ageism has on older adults and what we can all do to combat it.
 
 

Chief Elder Officer

As “CEO,” Ms. McCallion challenges ageism through her work with seniors across the country– listening to and sharing the perspectives of older adults, advising on innovation in senior living and sharing her wisdom and life experience.
