Our Perspective

How we see Waterside - A VIVA Retirement Community

Waterside Retirement Community in Carleton Place is the kind of place we dream of retiring to when we get to that age. Overlooking the Mississippi River, near pleasant shops in this peaceful village, it’s a seniors’ oasis. And still, it’s just a half hour away from Ottawa, making it ideal for seniors with family in the west end of the city.

At Waterside, it’s apparent that the entire community is planned around the enjoyment of life. For starters, just look at the list of amenities. There’s an indoor pool, a spacious movie theatre, chef-prepared meals daily, just for starters. Life here is full, including regular onsite lectures, fitness classes, and many trips outside the community to take in local sporting events, museums, and galleries.

Those factors and others work together to create a vibrant community of independent seniors, along with staff who visibly enjoy their work and have enthusiasm for helping those in their care. Loyalty and integrity are further apparent in the fact that there are both team members and residents who have been here for many years. This is ideally affordable for area seniors who love all the best in life and who have family in Ottawa Region.

Reviews of Waterside - A VIVA Retirement Community

What residents and their loved ones say about Waterside - A VIVA Retirement Community in reviews.

Google review from October 2023, senior

"I stayed at Waterside for two weeks after hip replacement surgery. The entire staff is amazing! It is apparent that the team thoroughly enjoy working together which made my stay so positive."

Nancy Dodsworth, family member

"Recently, my mom and dad made Waterside their new home, and they have settled in quickly, making new friends, enjoying the events and facilities, and the meals. They chose Waterside (above other homes) because they were made to feel welcome right from their first visit, and the bright openness of the rooms was an attraction for them. Trigger and her team made their move easy and stress-free, and the staff team has been terrific in taking care of their needs. I am happy to see them so comfortable..."

Duncan Campbell-Sinclair, resident

"Waterside has the best of everything. Medical staff on duty, great food. [There are] many events if you’re active, both within Waterside and also by bus. [There’s] your own garden plot, a saltwater pool, movies, entertainment, also a bar. Who could ask for more?"
