Reviews of VIVA Pickering

Our perspective

This residence is ideal for Durham Region seniors who want to improve their lives by enjoying the best that life has to give, in a full-fledged care facility easily accessible to families from throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Two 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.

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.

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.

William James, resident

A few days ago I was offered a Lamb meal which was prepared by the Culinary staff members of Viva Pickering Retirement Community. Generally speaking, I'm not a very foody or greedy person, but man, that Lamb meal was so flavorful and nicely prepared, I was forced to ask for a second serving. Angel, your food is always nicely prepared, but wow, that Lamb was one level above excellent. After eating that meal, I'm pleased to report that I was truly served a meal prepared by an Angel. Thanks for all that you do Angel. Huge thank you and Congratulations to you and your entire team.

I wanted to say thank you to all the staff, for all their hard work and diligence keeping all the residents, especially my parents safe, during Covid. The nursing team managed by Kelly Turcotte are amazing and very helpful. I’d like to also mention Matthew Uy and his team have gone above and beyond their duties with my parents.

Catherine Shimmin, family member

My father can't say enough good things about your hard work and care, delivering in-room meals, health checkups and endless sanitizing, all with a cheerful and professional attitude that brightens his tedious days of lockdown. Very reassuring knowing you are looking out for him until it's safe to be in public again.

Karen, family member

Mom loves it here ... Awesome apartment and building, could not ask for more.
