FAQs

Revera has a variety of retirement residence options, including independent living, independent supportive living, assisted living, memory care, short term stay and respite care.

At our retirement homes, we believe that life doesn't end after retirement. We strive to help our residents make the most of their retirement by providing them with the resources and support they need to stay active and engaged in their own communities. It’s all about More Living in your everyday life and in your community. Our homes allow you to enjoy your retirement years with family and friends without having to stress about the many things you normally would living alone. Whether you’re looking for an active social life or more personalized support, we provide a senior living option that can meet your needs.

The cost depends on the choices you make for services, care level options and the type of  suite. All of these help determine how much you pay.  In some cases, you can also choose to bring in government-funded or private services which help to offset these costs.


Retirement living offers seniors a wide range of active living and social activities, as well as the convenience of having maintenance, housekeeping, and other services taken care of. It also provides a sense of community and security, allowing seniors to live independently and enjoy their retirement years. Additionally, retirement living costs for some can be more affordable or equal to maintaining a home, as living costs are bundled into one. You also have the comfort of knowing that in some retirement homes you can age in place, which means you will  have access to the care and support you need to manage your health, through onsite or visiting care professionals as you get older.

If you do not require assistance with personal care, independent supportive living is the right option for you. If you need an extra hand to get through your day, assisted living (which might be called a slightly different name where you live) is the best choice. Either way, you’ll enjoy living in your own comfortably designed suite, come and go as you please, and benefit from the activities you choose each day.

Some retirement homes provide both independent supportive living and assisted living options in one residence, to allow for a continuum of care. The benefit of this type of retirement community is that healthy, independent seniors can enjoy a self-sufficient lifestyle, and then as their health needs change they can transition to an assisted living option in the same community.

Assisted living is best suited for seniors who need some level of support with activities of daily living, while independent supportive living is designed for active seniors who are largely self-sufficient. Both offer optional services for added convenience, such as housekeeping and laundry; assisted living homes offer a broader range of care services to support your daily activities, as well as care options including dementia care.

If you’re making the move to a retirement residence, the most important thing to remember is that this is your home. Make it personal and comfortable by:

  • Bringing things that make you happy, like photographs or favourite mementoes, and display them in your room

  • Checking out the Active Living programs and events both inside and outside the residence, where could meet new friends 

  • Getting to know the staff, who will be more than happy to help out

  • Exploring your neighbourhood to  check out nearby eateries and shopping

  • Inviting your family to visit you here any time

  • Joining in on Active Living, cultural and social events and activities at your residence

  • Bringing you pet along if your residence is pet-friendly

When choosing a retirement home, there are several factors to consider. First, consider the location. Is it close to family and friends, or in an area that is convenient for errands and activities? 

Second, consider the services and amenities offered. Are there activities and social events to keep residents engaged? Is there transportation to and from the home? Third, consider the cost of the home. Is it within your budget? 

Finally, consider the quality of care. Is the staff experienced and well-trained? Are there quality medical services available? Taking all of these factors into consideration can help you find the right retirement home for you in North York. Read our helpful guides on how to think through what’s right for you.
