The Village of Taunton Mills

3800 Brock Sreet North, Whitby, Ontario, L1R 3A5

This lives up to the title of village much more than residence or seniors' home. The layout of the building follows very much from the idea of a small town, its central town square holding a number of "shops" to browse and meet up with friends. Places you'll find in the village centre (a commons area) include a library, a theatre, a café, a general store and a pub. Unlike most Ontario towns, though, there's never any cold weather or rain. It has to be seen to be believed.

Levels of care available in the Village of Taunton Mills range from independent to assisted living. Assistance in Schlegel Villages does not apply a cookie-cutter approach, however. The individual needs of residents are looked at, and care offered is resident-centred. The attitude of staff here is not that seniors live where the staff works, but "we work in your home."

V!VA Pickering

1880 Glengrove Road, Pickering, Ontario, L1V 0C6

This five-star boutique style, all-inclusive retirement community will outpace all typical expectations of a seniors' home. This home features all the luxury amenities you might have heard about elsewhere (such as an onsite pub, swimming pool, movie theatre) but combined with an exceptionally caring staff, right in the Town Centre. Two of the exceptional features of this home are the large suites and the superb dining room that combines a cozy interior with delicious food. You'll look and feel so much better, with the onsite beauty salon and spa, the exercise room, and the in-house wellness centre.

The location of this retirement home adds to the appeal: close to downtown, with ample shopping, near the public library and a variety of health care services. The GO Station and other public transit are also nearby, and the residence is less than a minute off the 401.

Harmony Hill Retirement Community

1335 Benson Street, Oshawa, Ontario, L1K 0W6

This is a still-very-new, innovative retirement residence created by builders of several other exceptional communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Staff here believe in the best of care, mixing conscientiousness with fun and pleasure, making this a happy place to live for residents. Onsite, there is a pub, a movie theatre, a hairdresser and beauty salon, a wellness center, and other in-house luxuries. Harmony Square is the meeting place between the Grove (independent living suites) and Orchard buildings (full service, assisted living area), where you'll find these shared amenities and other services.

One exceptional feature of living at Harmony Hill is the food. Meals prepared by the residence's Red Seal Chef are a great pleasure to residents. Meals balance considerations of nutrition and deliciousness, along with choice. Food is prepared fresh daily, using local sources where that is feasible.
