Downtown Historic Cobourg Palisade Gardens, and James Club

 Where growing older doesn't mean slowing down

Palisade Gardens, and James Club, Nothumberland’s  upscale but oh so affordable seniors' retirement condominium  and rental complex, is located in the heart of park filled historic Cobourg. Brought to life by Retirement Life Communities, these two adjacent residences allow couples and singles to live the retirement dream in Canada’s best small city.

James Club - Coburg
The two buildings are steps from downtown shopping and amenities, the heritage Waterfront Park, and the marina.  Palisade Gardens, and James Club are the ideal retirement residences for superb quality, yet affordable retirement living.

The buildings have many, many features, including a variety of assisted living options that set them apart from every other seniors' residence in the district. The community-minded  and full-service environment offers residents everything from medical services, 24-Hour Emergency Response Monitoring, a  library, theatre, guest rooms,  hair salon, laundry and game lounge. And dining?  Dinner is the high point of the day!

Inside and out, Cobourg’s new buildings are turning heads not just in town but in the surrounding communities of Port Hope, Brighton and Campbellford. In fact, Micki Mclean has a tough time containing her enthusiasm when talking about the overwhelming success of Palisade Gardens, and James Club, which she manages.
“We have been named by Readers Choice the #1 Retirement Community for the past four years.  This is a badge of honour that we wear with pride,” she recently told Mature Plus Magazine.
“We attribute our continued success to the fact that we have created a beautiful, welcoming environment in which to live, and to the best staff dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of seniors.  I can truly say that residents and staff alike are very happy. We are a tight knit community.”

Facebook isn’t just for the kids.  A look at the Palisade Gardens, and James Club Facebook and you will see pictures of residents having fun!  Pictures from last month’s Annual Strawberry Social, online registration for the Family Feud competition and the scrabble tournament! These along with the Yoga Club, walking tour get-togethers, demonstrate how meaningful living in historic Cobourg is.
Ms. Mclean is always happy to go into detail about the services and activities that make the two buildings so sought after. “ We have a first rate dining room, or you can take advantage of in suite service. We have a wellness centre; exercise programs, plus a range of necessary medical and health-care extras such as medication monitoring, massage and physiotherapy, a chiropractor, a chiropodist and several other alternative medicine practitioners.

Palisade Gardens, and James Club also offer Options for Living, a list of services that residents can option to access as their daily needs change or become requirements.
Joe Ger, President of Retirement Life Communities says that Cobourg has been and continues to be a town very close to his heart.

“Not only have we created a full service retirement community that we are immensely proud of, we are now working with the Town and the County to create and build affordable housing for the elderly and people with disabilities. We believe in being integral members of the Town of Cobourg community at large, by being a full participant in the housing and personal services sector of the town.
Come take a look. Give us a call!
