The North York Residence Ltd.

The Neighbourhood

The North York Apartment is located in a mature part of town with several amenities within walking distance. For example, a City Library and a Neighbourhood HUB across the road, which has programs and information supports designed for seniors. One City block away by walking or by bus is a corner plaza with pharmacy, food, medical and other stores and offices.

Transportation Services

In terms of transportation, starting with the Finch Avenue bus line, a resident, with one ride, can travel to either the University Subway route or the Yonge Street Subway route. From there, one can travel the world or at least to downtown Toronto to cinemas, stores and specialty hospitals and medical facilities.

More Than Your Average Apartment

The North York Apartment resident is a senior who wants to maintain their independence. Using the Sionito’ more than your average apartment’ model allows seniors to be released from the demand of planning a nutritional menu, going out shopping and bringing the food back, sorting it, shelving it, and then cooking it, doing the pots and dishes. It’s tiring just thinking about it!
Maintaining one’s nutrition out of the way means a senior can now age in place and enjoy each day maintaining good health and retaining their independence. The Sionito senior’s Life-ability Model advocates for seniors growing in independence and staying free of the Nursing Home Model of living.

The residence is an apartment building consisting of 158 apartment units.

Each bachelorette unit is designed for single occupancy with a full 4 piece washroom.

Each unit is furnished with a wall-mounted TV.

Application Process

Simply fill in the survey and you will be contacted within 48 hours

    The residence is ideal for a senior whose mental health challenge or physical condition is reducing their ability to design a nutritious diet, shop for food, bring it home, prepare it, and clean up after the meal. The dining room amenity allows them to focus on the Active Daily Living requirements of independently ageing in place.

    In order to qualify for accommodations, most residents require a formal relationship with a community-based caseworker. The Administrator works with the caseworker to determine the number and kind of support needed from the community to retain the tenant’s independence.

    Applicants will be required to be fully vaccinated.
