Thornhill Woods is ideal for seniors who have family in Vaughan and Markham, and who want to improve their health and their happiness by living in a high quality environment, with excellent care.



Wonderfully vibrant community

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. Many people choose to exercise regularly, by working out in the wellness center, swimming in the saltwater pool, or joining the aqua fit class.

We looked at a few Retirement Communities and are so grateful we chose Viva Thornhill Woods. Wendy, Adam, and the entire team were so helpful and we are very excited that our mom will be part of such a great community. We would highly recommend VIVA Thornhill Woods Retirement Community and look forward to many great times ahead.

I am beyond grateful to Wendy who has been delightful to work with from our very first tour! My mother is thriving at V!VA and is enjoying all aspects of retirement community living. Thank you to all the staff at V!VA Thornhill Woods for being beyond accommodating and helpful.

Our experiences been very positive from our first meeting, to my mom moving in. Our contacts with staff members have always been responsive and there's always immediate attention to any query we might have. They've extended themselves to ensure my mother feels she's in a safe, friendly and responsible community. Their attention to the handling of COVID and its variant OMICRAN, according to Public Health guidelines has been remarkable. The place is clean, warm and inviting. Viva Thornhill Woods

My husband and I have been at V!VA Thornhill Woods for close to two years. I found there are a lot of activities, such as Zumba, exercise in the swimming pool, and regular exercise in the full gym. There is a bus that takes us to the bank, shopping, trips to the park in the summer, as well as concerts. The food is plentiful and varied, and the staff and community members are very nice.

When I started thinking about retiring and selling my condominium, I did visit several retirement homes. I found that Viva was for me. My apartment, my choice, was the right one for my needs and comfort. The building itself is very welcoming and bright, I met people I knew, and their programs presented, the live entertainment, especially Wendy's programs, exercise classes, outings, three good healthy meals a day, the waitresses and waiters in the dining room, and the staff, are most obliging.

V!VA is for me

The building itself is very welcoming and bright, I met people I knew, and their programs presented, the live entertainment, especially Wendy's programs, exercise classes, outings, three good healthy meals a day, the waitresses and waiters in the dining room, and the staff, are most obliging. I am retired: no food shopping, cooking, or cleaning. It is all provided by Viva.

It was a pretty easy decision [to move mom here]. V!VA stood out in so many ways. The main areas are bright and always full of people and activities. The many food options at each meal was a great bonus ... Mom's room is bright and cheery. ... It makes me so happy now to talk to hear her say "I just love living here at Viva". Thanks to all the Viva staff for making that possible..

My mom has benefited so much since moving here. She's become friends with a wonderful group of people, she goes on trips, out for lunch with friends... She is really enjoying life and we're really happy with the decision we made as a family!

I don't have to worry about doing housework every day, I have more time to enjoy myself, be with friends and have the best quality of life possible! [We] live independently and freely as we wish.
