Our story

We've designed our services around you

We do things differently at Arvida. Our 6,100 residents love living in Arvida's communities, but we know you want to stay living in your own home. We let you tell us what you needed to live well independently as you grow older. You told us you wanted:

  • The ability to plan your own days and keep doing what you've always loved;
  • The control to choose the type and amount of help you get, when you get it and who delivers it;
  • Open communication from us with your families and other people in your support network;
  • Reliability and consistency in the people helping you so you can build familiar relationships; and
  • More high quality options for getting out and about, staying active and keeping connected with others.

So we've developed a range of services that will help you keep living life your way, with a bit of help from us.
