The Amintro team are excited to announce we have joined ORCA, The Ontario Retirement Communities Association, as a commercial partner. Since 1977 ORCA has been “the voice of Ontario’s retirement communities,” committed to standards of operational excellence and to partnering with “over 240 commercial partners who provide products and valuable services to retirement communities throughout the province.” As one of their newest commercial partners, we’re proud to share that Amintro services and values align beautifully with ORCA’S commitment to both the senior consumer and their care communities. Amintro President, Charlene Nadalin had this to say about the recent agreement: “We are thrilled to be a part of a community of communities, dedicated to providing support for both staff and residents in the retirement care community.

Amintro offers an online community and information hub where “grown-ups come to make new friends.” We are a social platform that enables members to engage, connect and socialize with like-minded older adults whether they are seniors living in retirement residences, or in senior living communities. Membership is free! As a commercial partner and fellow member of ORCA, retirement residences can rely on Amintro as a trusted source of information sharing and education with the added benefit of helping mature adults to form connections amongst their fellow senior residents. Amintro facilitates:

  • Forging new connections with others within their retirement community setting simply by utilizing the Amintro platform.
  • Support for retirement community staff in their ongoing efforts to reduce social isolation, encourage resident engagement in activities and in helping their residents to become more socially active in a safe and meaningful way.

As an added benefit, utilizing Amintro even supports seniors in transition – those considering a move, or already booked to move into, a retirement living setting – providing them the opportunity to connect with others BEFORE they even arrive at their retirement community of choice!

Amintro offers a Senior Living Handbook, available here. Educational seminars and webinars, virtual events, videos and articles of interest to seniors and a variety of commercial service partners all form an integral part of our platform, empowering seniors with information, products and services of value to them.

The last word goes once again to President Charlene Nadalin who shares, “We’re proud to be a part of the ORCA community of retirement communities and a signatory of the ORCA Code of Ethics as an acknowledged service provider. We’re committed to supporting seniors live a healthy, socially active and engaged lifestyle and providing the tools and resources retirement community staff can utilize to aid in this process.” Look for Amintro in each of these ORCA service categories:
