Caretenders Inc. was established in 1988 and since that time it has established a successful track record of developing and operating some thirteen retirement communities, primarily in British Columbia, Ontario, and Arizona. Currently, in addition to The Highlands, we operate two residences in Ontario and our newest building, Heaton Place, in Armstrong, B.C.

Caretenders Inc. philosophy is to break away from the cookie-cutter molds of the big retirement home companies and instead offer residents of our facilities something unique. As is true of The Highlands, each of our buildings are specifically tailored to their surroundings to reflect the heart of the greater community; from the style of our building, to our landscaping, services, staff and menu, every aspect of a Caretenders Inc. facility is perfectly adapted to the general feel of the surrounding community so that residents feel like they never left their own home.
