The most retirement lifestyle
options and the best care

Garden Homes

Exclusive to The Gardens of Peterborough, "Garden Homes" are the retirement alternative with maximum independence and privacy—while still providing security and access to Care Services should the need arise. Located at Royal Gardens and Canterbury Gardens, Garden Homes are country-style attached bungalows, nestled among landscaped gardens. They are available in spacious one and two-bedroom designs that are perfect for today's active older adult. They are often the lifestyle of choice for couples or people with pets.

Independence and Choice

The Garden Home lifestyle includes a delicious meal each day, weekly housekeeping with linen and towel service. Washers and dryers are provided in each suite, allowing you the choice of doing your own personal laundry or arranging for our staff to provide this service. Each Garden Home has its own individually controlled furnace and air-conditioning units.

Your full kitchen—complete with spacious cupboards, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and stove—allows you to prepare your favourite foods when you want to. Should you wish a break from cooking, whenever the mood strikes—join friends and family in our beautiful dining room—just steps away in the main dining room. Let our attentive, staff serve you with a smile. Meals can also be ordered ahead and delivered right to your Garden Home—the choice is yours! Explore our Dining section to find out more.

A Complete Community at Your Door

With features such as covered parking and plug-ins for the winter months, you can spend your day out visiting friends—confident you won't have to shovel snow or other household chores before you leave. If you prefer, take a stroll into the main building and through our beautiful, park-like Atrium and spend your day how you want to—no matter what the weather is. Have your hair done in our on-site beauty salon or have a relaxing tea in our comfortable tea room.

The Gardens of Peterborough offer an array of stimulating programs to complement our residents' current interests and help them to discover new ones. Led by our full-time Activity Directors, we have regular excursions on our air-conditioned bus to exciting destinations. Visit our Activities section to see more of what we offer.

For the more active, visit our state-of-the-art Fitness Centre for some exercise. Schedule an appointment with our fitness consultant who will work with you to design a personalized fitness program. Or join in our regular exercise and activation programs, designed to enhance mobility and independence.

Privacy & Independence, with a Safety-Net

Garden Homes are the ideal choice for active, older adults who refuse to compromise on lifestyle, but who value the security of registered nursing staff on-site 24 hours a day. Emergency response systems are located in each Garden Home, so you can contact our staff around the clock should the need arise.
