Christie Gardens in Ontario, Canada joined the Eden Registry on March 27, 2017. Located in Toronto’s Davenport Neighborhood, near Seaton Village and The Annex, Christie Gardens Apartments & Care has been serving Elders in Toronto for over 30 years.

The care partners that work here pride themselves on honoring the whole person; mind, body and spirit. As a team, they focus on a variety of ways for each individual to live the life that they desire. They do this by creating dynamic Elder-driven activities that foster a holistic and diverse environment of continued learning and growth.  Daily activities include therapeutic and creative arts, fitness, cooking, visiting with friends, playing games and relaxing outside in the courtyard.  They cultivate innovative community living for Elders by creating a vibrant, engaging community among themselves, but are also aware that an effective community extends beyond its own walls. Networking, volunteering, and partnerships with various community affiliates are key components to the vitality and life expressed by the Elders who have chosen Christie Gardens as home.

To create a sense of smallness and closeness, they have divided themselves into 4 neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has its own Advocate. The Advocate is protector and crusader for the well-being of everyone that lives and works at Christie Gardens. Furthermore, they ensure that all aspects of the Elder’s life include variety, choice, and autonomy. Elders choose what they eat, what they wear, what activities they attend, and how their day is ordered. These are just a few of the reasons why Christie Gardens is such a special place to live.  Come on by and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
