Esther Goldstein

Esther K.H. Goldstein B.Sc., B.S.W., RSW. Owner Senioropolis Inc., Partner Lifestyle 55+ Network Inc., Lead Consultant and Trainer for SCA Consulting Program:

Esther obtained a bachelor degree in science from the University of Toronto in 1986 and in Social Work from Ryerson University in 1990. She is a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. Esther worked as a hospital social worker in the Greater Toronto Area for 12 years, primarily with the geriatric population. A significant portion of her work involved counselling senior clients and their families about the difficult task of relocating to care homes and assisting them with the placement process. As Ontario's health care system evolved, people began turning to the private sector to care for their elderly that could not be managed at home. Information about retirement homes and many other private services was limited and hard to find so Esther created the ‘Senioropolis’ Guide and www.senioropolis.com out of a need she had for this information. Over time the book and site evolved and expanded. The publication became well-know and is often referred to as  ‘The little red book’ where users can find answers to any question they may have about retirement living and many of the homes in Ontario.

Esther was a member of the Stakeholders Advisory Council (SAC) of Ontario’s Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority since the Fall of 2013. At the end of 2016, Esther was appointed Chair of SAC, a position she continued to hold through the end of 2019 when her term on the Council ended. Additionally, Esther volunteers her time as a member of the Board of Directors of The International Breastfeeding Centre in Toronto.

2017 saw Esther expand Senioropolis Inc. in the development of SeniorCareAccess.com. In 2019, Esther and Paul Cutajar incorporated Lifestyle 55+ Network Inc. in order to expand the Senioroplis reach as well as to offer a new level of services to professionals and families.
