SeniorsZen.com is a free resource for finding local senior housing in Canada. We provide comprehensive information on Retirement Homes, Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s Care, and Home Care in all Canadian provinces and we’ll guide you through the process of choosing right senior living options for yourself or your loved ones.
Since 2014, SeniorsZen.com grants $500 Scholarship each year to Canadian students to help them in pursuing their educational goals!
