We understand how Retirement Homes & LTC operates

The entire Solva team has more than 60 years combined experience in the Ottawa & Eastern Ontario Senior Living Sector!

Our team has either worked, managed, owned, operated local Retirement Homes, Assisted Living, Long Term Care Facilities and HomeCare Agencies.  Our owner (Christine Forget) even teaches Retirement Communities Management at Algonquin College.  We understand the operation of a home care agency, retirement home, assisted living residence and long term care facility better than any other independent advisor.  Tap into our many years of experience and knowledge for FREE without obligation.

We are independent, impartial and unbiased.

We partner with 90% of all retirement homes in Ottawa who have agreed to cover the cost of your search. However, we are the ONLY navigation program where our team is NOT paid by commission. They have no agenda to refer you to one residence over the next. They will provide referrals based on your individual needs, preferences, personality, goals and budget. This may include homes, services or programs that do not partner with us….and that is perfectly okay!
