Our residents & families say it best view all
This home is like my home. We are well looked after. The friendly, hard-working and hospitable Extendicare team keeps me on my toes. I enjoy socializing in the friendly areas, dining with friends and family, gardening and going out shopping. I love to be busy. I am comfortable here.
We knew from the first day there was something good going on here. Starting with the team of people that welcomed dad into Extendicare and with the care they took to get to know him, his past, his likes and his family, this indeed meant a lot. It was a great comfort.
