Retirement Living

Enjoy the privacy of your own home with friendly surroundings and the active Northwood social life.

Retirement living at Northwood’s Halifax Campus is about choice, independence, and convenience.

The Halifax Campus is a place where you know your neighbour. It’s where the staff know you. It’s a place where amenities are all under one roof, giving you access to a wide range of programs and services as part of our Northwood community.

As a tenant in one of our Retirement Living Apartments, you’ll have access to a fitness centre, a health centre, a drug store and the Harbourview lounge, offering regular entertainment and a place to gather. Check out all of our amenities for more details.

As a member of Northwood’s community, you can choose to become involved in the Tenant’s Social Committee and help plan events and activities for your neighbours or just participate in activities geared to your interests. Either way, you’ll enjoy an active social life.

We have three options for Retirement Living at our Halifax Campus: Independent Living, Supportive Living and Assisted Living.

– Please be advised that some programs and services may not be available at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Dear residents and families,

Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 immunization plan, directed by Public Health, includes a 3-phase approach.

Northwood is provided vaccine by Public Health and has been advised to vaccinate front-line healthcare workers who are closely involved in the COVID-19 response (more likely to be exposed to COVID-19), residents, staff, and Designated Caregivers of long-term care facilities.

Tenants who live in Northwood’s apartments and who meet Public Health’s criteria will be eligible fore the vaccine when the province rolls out the plan for the seniors living in the community who are 80 or older/seniors living in the community who are 75 to 79.
