Seniors Housing Services city of Toronto

Housing options shift to support our changing needs as we age. On this page is a description of services that enable aging at home and other more intensive supports.

The Toronto Seniors Helpline (416-217-2077) or 211 can also help connect seniors to agencies and community services.

Find the best independent living community in Ontario

Independent living homes present a paradox for seniors — your life will become both increasingly active and more relaxing at the same time. You’ll suddenly find yourself with plenty of activities and programs in which to take part, but your facility’s staff will take care of many of your needs. Some of these services, programs, and amenities may include:

  • Games, like bingo, shuffleboard, trivia, and other brain fitness
  • Grooming facilities — barbershops, hair salons, manicure and pedicure centers
  • Scheduled transportation
  • Light housekeeping and maintenance services (i.e. changing light bulbs)
  • A concierge to help you discover the incredibly diverse and lively Ontario outdoors
  • A dining hall (many independent living homes include meals in their monthly fees)
  • Other common rooms, such as computer rooms, lounges, and card rooms

Turn Your Spare Bedroom Into An Opportunity 

SpacesShared seeks to alleviate two critical challenges facing Canadians – older adults ability to age in their own homes and remain connected to their communities, and students’ ability to access safe and affordable housing near the campuses that they attend. 

With backgrounds in public policy, social work, and technology development, our founders have seen first-hand the potential for technology to drive positive social and economic change. At the same time, we understand that a human touch is necessary to provide a feeling of safety and security for SpacesShared Hosts and Guests. Through intuitive technology, scheduled check-ins, and dedicated human support, we are committed to building, sustaining, and supporting intergenerational home-sharing. Shared spaces charges Hosts a monthly fee
