Credit River Reviews

   Email community


Both family members and the seniors who live here list the most striking quality of this community as "the genuine friendliness of the staff" … their eagerness to please. And when it comes right down to it, that's the most important aspect of any retirement community. A clean, healthy environment with great food and fun activities is always important (Credit River has all those things!) but ultimately there's nothing better than being surrounded by people willing to go out of their way to make every day the best it can be.



Vibrant community in the heart of Mississauga

Featuring some uniquely wonderful spaces inside and out, this Streetsville retirement community brings Verve's passion for excellence to this area of Mississauga. We especially love the bright lighting in the second floor fireside room, and the large outdoor courtyard, landscaped with a rock-faced gardening, backing onto the quiet side-street. Credit River Retirement Residence is situated in a calm residential area of the city, surrounded by some well-established homes with large properties. Streetsville Memorial Park is one of the nearby greenspaces here.

This is a still-very-new building (founded in 2016) whose décor and personnel create a calm, restful atmosphere where there is an abundance of space (always a mark of contemporary design, of course).

  • Independent living
  • Assisted living
  • Dementia/Memory care

  •   $3,200 per month

  •   133 suites

What people say about Credit River


I took a trial stay here with my mother, having also tried out nearly a dozen other retirement homes throughout Mississauga and Oakville. This was the one that impressed me most.
—C. C., family member

Staff here are very caring and attentive. They listen and follow through on decisions [and] go out of their way to make the move and transition as smooth as possible. They stay in contact with the family and address all concerns going forward.
—Eileen, family member

We all help each other here. So If you're going out to the drug store or the shopping center, you say something, ask if anyone needs anything. If somebody needs help, you help them. Paul [a neighbour in the community] helped me out when I went for my hernia. He picked me up and took me over and I didn't even know they guy, then. I do now, though!
—Reg D., resident

I've got everything I need ... housekeeping, my meals, I don't want to do that anymore! There are lots of activities going on in here. It's my home.
—Gord, resident

We needed to find a place quickly, one that addressed dad's need for assisted care. We were quickly relieved to know that Credit River had all the resources required to address dad's needs ... staff have been exceptional in helping me through this difficult transition.
—Name withheld for privacy's sake, family member

I made friends right away when I moved in here. It's best to make your own mind up about moving here, then you feel best about the whole thing. I was settled the second day I was here. I have all my things, all my clothes, all I need!
—Judy, resident

People here are almost like another family. They were very sympathetic when my husband passed away. It's also nice that they have assisted living and memory care in the same building, so you know that you don't have to move when you're getting less active.
—Betty , resident

We were looking for a place that could accommodate our parents and our aunt and Credit River Retirement has been incredible! We were first impressed with the diligence of the physical assessments prior to acceptance and then impressed by the way the team worked together to accommodate everyone with everything from move in to settling in. It's been 4 months [now, and] what has impressed me the most is the positive way team members interact with residents. I've witnessed so many instances of compa

Very happy

We were looking for a place that could accommodate our parents and our aunt and Credit River Retirement has been incredible! We were first impressed with the diligence of the physical assessments prior to acceptance and then impressed by the way the team worked together to accommodate everyone with everything from move in to settling in. It's been 4 months [now, and] what has impressed me the most is the positive way team members interact with residents. I've witnessed so many instances of compassion that you would think staff were caring for their own folks ... The management team also treats residents as if they were their own parents and seem to know all the residents by name! All the staff excel at demonstrating team work and it's easy to see they have each other's back and like each other. Credit River Retirement Residence puts on some great gala events where it's "all hands on deck"!  It doesn't matter if it's in the evening or on weekends - everyone is pitching in! Its an outstanding team! Four months in, we're very happy.
—Dwight E, family member

Everyone has been amazing at Credit River! My mother was in crisis and unable to move to LTC due to COVID-19 restrictions. Jill, Julie, Shereen and Paulo have been incredibly supportive and accommodating. My mother is now safe and well cared for.
—Julie Warriner, family member

We recently moved my mother into Credit River from Montreal. The staff here has been amazing - extremely supportive and patient as we navigated through the many and ever changing restrictions and regulations in two provinces!
—Nancy Hastings, family member

Everything about Credit River Retirement Residence is 5 star plus! All the staff go above and beyond to assist with all your needs and concerns.

Trying to be proactive for my mother I have chosen to visit several retirement residence. Credit River was the one that took the time to take me on a full tour and experience the daily lifestyle. We were fortunate to be there when they had an afternoon of musical entertainment and also another day when they had the ‘Pie in the face’ event. Everyone was thoroughly enjoying it (including me).

Trying to be proactive for my mother I have chosen to visit several retirement residence. Credit River was the one that took the time to take me on a full tour and experience the daily lifestyle. We were fortunate to be there when they had an afternoon of musical entertainment and also another day when they had the ‘Pie in the face’ event. Everyone was thoroughly enjoying it (including me). There was a very natural flow and casualness once you entered the building! We truly believe this will be the place once the time is right and we thank Jill S for all her attention.

Currently my parents, my paternal aunt and my husband's paternal aunt are cared for at Credit River Retirement home. So I am familiar with assisted living, dementia care, and Independent Living programming and care. As a MSW level hospital social worker I am pretty analytical of services generally but I am comfortable recommending all three levels of care at Credit River. Food is good, programming is lively and they have a competent physician and nursing care. Kindness and compassion is evident
