Mississauga, ON, June 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Revera, a leader in the senior living sector, today announced its new Affinity Partnership with C.A.R.P., also known as the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, a national advocacy organization that serves the needs of Canadians As We Age. Revera is proud to be the only senior living operator in Canada approved by C.A.R.P.
Revera and C.A.R.P. share a common goal: to improve the aging experience for Canadian seniors. As part of its Affinity Partnership, Revera will offer all C.A.R.P. members special benefits, including two months’ free rent for members moving into a Revera retirement residence.
“Revera is proud to be the only senior living operator in the sector to be recognized by C.A.R.P. as an Affinity Partner,” says Thomas G. Wellner, CEO and President of Revera. “While we are two organizations with distinct advocacy positions, Revera and C.A.R.P. share a common social purpose in our advocacy efforts to end ageism and a common goal to create opportunities for seniors to live a life of purpose.”
Revera is pleased to offer C.A.R.P. members, through this partnership, a special two months rent-free offer when moving into a Revera retirement residence. Revera offers a variety of independent living, supportive living, assisted living and memory care suites at its retirement homes across Canada. The residences offer best-in-class amenities, recreation programs and facilities, social activities and dining options, all informed by Revera’s Dimensions of Wellness program, a holistic approach to seniors health and wellness.
“The devastating impact of the pandemic in Long-Term Care has not only revealed gaping weaknesses in dated buildings and thinking, but highlights the truly massive scale of the investments that will have to be made if Canadians are ever to Age with Dignity.
C.A.R.P. recognizes Revera for its work and ongoing research into Senior Living – from Retirement Residences to Long-Term Care facilities – and for its dedication to the innovative redevelopment of those spaces.
This new partnership reflects our shared determination to protect the safety and dignity of older Canadians, to celebrate them, and to continue to advocate relentlessly on their behalf,” says Moses Znaimer, President, C.A.R.P.
Backed by more than 320,000 members, C.A.R.P. is a non-partisan association committed to working with all parties in government to advocate for older Canadians. It promotes equitable access to health care, financial security, and freedom from ageism.
