Balmoral Village

A healthy retirement lifestyle like no other

You’ve made lots of choices in your lifetime, but now that the time has come to make a choice as it relates to where you might want to live during your golden years, the available options may seem daunting. As part of a growing demographic, you’re very particular as to what you want, and that where you choose to settle accommodates your changing needs, as well as offering you an extensive network of support, amenities and activities. The good news is that the developer of Balmoral Village has created a community that covers all the bases, while adding many perks that are sure to delight.

This all-encompassing community offers a village-type atmosphere that includes different styles, and types, of housing options to suit lifestyle demands, as well as financial budgets. Upon completion, Balmoral Village will include 96 bungalows and townhomes, in addition to 49 rental apartments, 129 condos, and a retirement residence with more than 100 independent suites, as well as 20+ assisted living suites.

Within the village will be an 8,000-square-foot recreation/community centre, including state-of-the-art exercise equipment, a swimming pool, a demo kitchen and a variety of other amenities. Also offered at the club house will be diversified programs, workshops and educational courses focusing on varied interests.

A 30,000-square-foot medical/wellness centre is planned for the community. Here, residents will have full access to a medical concierge, physicians, physiotherapy, nutritionists, massage and occupational therapy, in addition to other personal care and home support services.

Balmoral Village is located in an enviable area of Collingwood – offering an expansive selection of city amenities, dining options, entertainment and four-season outdoor recreational opportunities. This area was specifically chosen, because Collingwood is an accessible community that leverages on its core strengths, like a vibrant downtown, as well as access to miles of hiking trails, Georgian Bay, golf courses, skiing and a plethora of other seasonal activities.

More than 70 per cent of the bungalow and townhome residences are now sold, with first occupancies expected this summer. Worry-free, one- and two-bedroom condominiums in a five-storey, mid-rise building, which includes underground parking and storage, can be reserved now. Condo prices start from $300,000 for floorplans that range from 700 to 1,300 square feet, with larger penthouse layouts available. Comparable condo suites in Toronto would be listed for twice as much. The Recreation Club and independent apartment rentals, in addition to suites in the retirement residence, which will include a meal plan, will be ready for occupancy this coming fall.

“I would not build something if I wouldn’t live there myself,” says Thomas Vincent, master developer. “You can’t replicate this opportunity anywhere else in Ontario. At Balmoral Village we have created an urban village, a private enclave – a community of care.”

HOUSE CALLS – Where experts answer questions on beauty, health and wellness.

In this issue, Barbara Perinot, RPN and General Manager of Evergreen Retirement Community (verveseniorliving.com), discusses…

Aging in Place

Q – I am an active sixty-eight-year-old woman and my husband, seventy-two, has just been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. We have decided to sell our house and move to a retirement residence that will give me the independence that I need, and the assistance that my husband might require in the future. Do you have any suggestions as to what to look for?


A – When searching for your future home in a retirement living community, it’s important that the home tries to incorporate your personal, spiritual, physical, social, intellectual and emotional needs through their daily programming.

A retirement home should allow you to live in a comfortable home environment, while enjoying its various amenities and services. A supportive life enrichment program will keep you as busy as you choose to be, while maintaining your independence.

The key to a healthy lifestyle

Quality food is important to a healthy lifestyle, as good food triggers positive memories that are associated with happiness and social interaction. When choosing a retirement home, it’s important to sample the food from the menu.

Aging in place

Supportive care options are very important, and will allow you the freedom to know that your loved one is cared for within the retirement home while you participate in quality programs inside, and outside, of the community. A retirement home that has the option of an assisted living floor will allow for an easier transition when medical, or cognitive, needs change. Aging in place is what retirement homes should strive for, and it’s imperative that wellness initiatives focus on keeping the mind stimulated and engaged.

Healthy mind and body

Physical programs promote a healthy mind and body. Move long and live strong – there’s much to be said for being as active as possible for as long as possible. Physical programs should be able to accommodate people of all abilities and provide a variety of focused programs.
