How do we define retirement living? It’s About Choice!

Retirement living is about you and your preferences. We take the work and worry out of day-to-day living, so there’s more time to enjoy life. While each person’s reason for choosing retirement living is unique, our facility fulfills many of the things we commonly look for in any lifestyle:

  • Peace of Mind
  • Companionship
  • Fulfillment
  • Privacy

Located beside the new hospital site in Sault Ste. Marie, Great Northern Retirement Home has been designed with the active senior in mind.
