Our Perspective

How we see Credit River - Verve Senior Living

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.

Featuring some uniquely wonderful spaces inside and out, this Streetsville retirement community brings Verve Senior Living'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).

Reviews of Credit River - Verve Senior Living

What residents and their loved ones say about Credit River - Verve Senior Living in reviews.

Claudine LaRochelle, family member

"We had to find a place for my mom who has Alzheimer’s Disease. I am very protective of my mother so I had a lot of reservations. When we met with Shantel, she understood exactly what I needed and that made me feel comfortable. Once my mom moved in, all the staff at Credit River Residences made me feel very welcome in the process of getting my mom adjusted, and they are very honest and transparent with me as to what’s working and what’s not. They are open to suggestions and trying new ideas..."

Michael Daly, family member

"My Mother moved into the Credit River Retirement Residence about eight months ago, and she is very happy there. We had visited other like residences in the area prior but, my Mom knew this was the place for her after the first visit. The residence is beautifully decorated, and the rooms and facilities are well maintained. The staff and residents made the move-in period very easy for her, and she now has many new friends.... We definitely made the right decision!"

Fraser Anderson, family member

"I needed to find a secure and caring home for my father who is suffering from dementia. I visited Credit River Residence to see one of their 'memory care' suites. I was warmly greeted and given a tour of the facilities and found that it provided all the services that my father needed for his care. Since moving my father into the Residence, he has been well looked after by the caring staff. The peace of mind knowing that my dad is in a safe, secure and caring environment was just what our family ..."
