Based in Ottawa, Tea and Toast provides a compassionate, convenient, credible, customized and complimentary local service for families and individuals looking for a retirement residence that fits their unique needs and budget. Our senior living advisors act as “brokers” in finding you the best place for this next stage of life.
Tea and Toast has two main audiences: individuals who are moving (or considering moving) and their adult children to a retirement residence.
For seniors, tea and toast can be comforting—but family members often see this go-to “meal” as a nutrition concern. We named the company “Tea and Toast” because after being in the industry for years, we noticed that tea and toast can bring up many different emotions for people—for some, nostalgia; and for others, concern and worry.
In a nutshell? Tea and Toast provides time savings, expert advice…and we lessen the emotional burden for you.
Studies show that conducting the search process on your own can take up 80+ hours (including researching and touring). Not to mention, taking it upon your own shoulders can lead to information overload and confusion.
Here’s one more reason to contact us: because our senior living advisors have toured virtually every home in Ottawa, we can bring you options that you probably didn’t even know existed!
We receive payment from nearly all retirement residences in Ottawa directly. As such, Tea and Toast’s search services are complementary. Should a family choose to extend their search beyond our contracted homes, we offer additional consulting packages. Please contact us to discuss which service best suits your family.
No. It is most important to us that we find you the best home for your needs. We have arrangements with just about every retirement residence in town, which means we can provide unbiased recommendations.

Yes! Tea and Toast can help set up a “short-term stay” for you or your loved one.
It’s possible you have noticed your parent’s health and wellbeing decreasing over the last several months or years. We advise everyone to be proactive and explore their options before something happens to force a move to a retirement residence. Contact us anytime; we are here to help you explore your options.
Absolutely. Often when there are multiple adult children, not all siblings may agree with the path to take. Our senior living advisors can take on a mediator role to help you ensure everyone’s perspective is taken into account (including your aging parent), provide you with expert insight about your options, and help you come to a decision that best meets your criteria.
Contact us. We know that this is an emotional time for everyone involved. We can act as a mediator to explore why your parent is feeling this way, and come up to options that will suit everyone’s needs and concerns.
We use your personal information to assist us in determining the retirement living options that meet or exceed your criteria. Once we choose our top three options, your personal information will be shared with the Marketing Director of each residence (to book tours, assist in personalizing the tour, and provide relevant information). Additionally, we have a privacy agreement that you sign at the beginning of our relationship so that everything is laid out in black and white. As a side note, WE DO NOT send your private information all over town, and you will not receive phone calls from the retirement homes directly.
