The Origin Way

Origin's only business is caring for seniors. We design, develop and operate innovative, industry-leading active lifestyle communities across Canada. Our strength is our passionate dedication to enhancing the lives of our residents.

1. The Origin Way is family, friends and fun. Family and friends matter greatly to us and are always welcome at our communities. We include our resident's families in their lives as much as possible. We regularly host special events and activities to bring families & friends closer to our residents. We offer guest meals, guest suites and other services to accomodate them.

2. The Origin Way is gourmet dining with fresh ingredients. Origin spends more to purchase the industry's highest quality raw food products. With better ingredients, we develop menu items that are both healthy and tasty. Our goal is to consistently provide families and their guests with meals that are created primarily by using scratch cooking methods. Our chefs are passionate about creating dining experiences and special events such as brunches and themed dinners.

3. The Origin Way is comfortable, supportive living. All suites at our communities are designed to maximize the comfort and safety of our residents. We are passionately committed to research and development in the discipline of aging and environmental design. The results are evident in suites and unique common amenity areas which support and enhance an aging lifestyle.

4. The Origin Way is a healthy lifestyle with a personal touch. Full social calendar and engaging activities are at the heart of each Origin community. Our professionally-trained fulltime recreation staff are dedicated to ensuring maximum participation in daily events and physical activity programs at all Origin Communities. At Origin we do not take a cookie-cutter approach to decide what residents would like to do and we're sure to ask them on a regular basis for input into the programs and classes we offer.

5. The Origin Way is dedicated staff who truly care. Origin is unique in the retirement housing industry. We are a collection of dedicated and passionate professionals bound by our common vision and determination to make a difference. We call this bond 'The Origin DNA' and it explains a passion for caring that drives all that we do. From housekeeping to reception to servers in our dining room, we all touch the lives of our residents each and every day.

6. The Origin Way is nurturing the body, mind and spirit. Origin's 'wholistic' approach ensures that every resident is treated as a whole person. We nurture the spirit and physical with our unique activities, programs and dining services. Our commitment to natural and environmentally responsible methods is clearly evident in the Evergreen Spa™.
