V!VA makes great homes, and V!VA Thornhill Woods makes a great home for seniors with families in Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Markham areas. The hallmark of life here is the spacious suites and excellent dining, but the good living extends well beyond those features. There are movie nights in the onsite theatre, and there's also an onsite pub, as well as a café. Assisted living includes all manner of care, such as feeding, bathing, care with mobility, and more. The number of members here makes it ideal to find an ample collection of new friends, while still being selective.

There are many signature features of living here. Perks! is a brightly lit café where you can sit and enjoy freshly baked cakes and sip delicious coffee or tea with friends. Pints! is the onsite pub where you can play some pool or watch the Leafs, Raps, Jays and Argos, with your in-house friends.

Richmond Hill Retirement Residence

70 Bernard Avenue, Richmond Hill, Ontario, L4C 0W7

Right in the heart of the city, Richmond Hill Retirement Residence is a place where local seniors find new levels of happiness. People who move here find an ideal place of both renewal and reinvigoration. Outside, there's shopping, greenspace, nearby entertainment and health care (pharmacies, doctors, physiotherapy and more) – everything you need. And inside, this community focuses on promoting the improved health of community members: not just physical, but mental and spiritual health.

There's so much to do here, and a communal focus on wellbeing. Unique activities include vendors who come right into the community and a hair salon where you can get pampering as regularly as you like (some ladies take advantage of this service weekly!) Fitness onsite (if that's your thing!) includes daily stretching, and for more fun there are dance classes and a yoga group. Seniors who need assistance can find it here, with the availability of personal support for bathing and other activities of daily living. Care extends to palliation, here, which family members find comforting.
