Unique to Solva:
We are a local established senior housing counselling program. We have visited and developed relationships with all local retirement homes.
Our retirement home search program and home care referral program is entirely free.
We also provide referrals for community based services and programs. We take a keen approach on understanding all the local services available to seniors.
We are partnered with over 125 local senior living providers who help cover the cost of your search. BUT we will refer to ALL retirement homes, not just those who partner with us.
Essentially, most retirement communities support our program but we do not leave any option behind, including those who do not partner (very few), and will consider all options based on needs, preferences and budget when it comes to our referrals. We can do this because our founder wanted to approach our program not like a realtor model where your Adviser gets paid commission when you move in but offer you truly impartial and unbiased guidance.
We are the only free senior living counselling program in Ottawa where our Advisers are paid full salary without commission and have no agenda if you move into a residence or not. Therefore no contracts to work with us, no pushy follow-up... just the information and support you need to save time and make informed decisions.
