In other words, we know what we’re doing. But more importantly, we care about how we do it.

At Element Lifestyle Retirement, we offer choice, continuity and peace of mind to seniors and families. With each residence we design and build, we provide an impressive range of services and amenities, so elders can do the things they want to do, not what someone else thinks they should do. If a parent has short-term or chronic health challenges, they’ll get the care they need. Which means that both parents can still live together. We think it’s a lot better that way.

Element proudly leads innovation with its intergenerational aging-in-place model has won an international award over 950 projects assessed worldwide. The company’s mission is to break status quo, and to address deeply rooted stigma and ageism that impact seniors and families across most societies. Element provides support and care services to elders in an intergenerational living arrangement that allow all generations of family to live together, supported to build rich lives on meaningful bonding experiences that dynamically engage all ages.

In doing so, Element sets out to do away with the conventional retirement residence and “old folks’ home”. All generations of families can be freed of burden and duty, so that family dynamics can be light and happy.

Elders can enjoy hearing their grandchildren’s laughter, and passing on their legacy in structured, facilitated programs for life experience sharing, reading, knitting, sewing, cooking – and of course, playing. Our residences and communities exist to help families achieve positive dynamics.
