How we see Forestview Retirement Residence - Verve Senior Living
One unique aspect of Forestview is a monthly residents' meeting, where your opinion gets heard on issues like upcoming events, as well as any other suggestions you have. That extra personal attention is seen also in the care options available. There are regular services like laundry and medication management, of course, but Forestview goes beyond that. For example, you can create your own personalized care plan that meets your specific needs, adding a la carte services as you require.
Downsview, Willowdale and North York seniors find the option of pure elegance in Forestview Retirement Residence. This is a community that takes its interest in your needs and concerns to a whole new level. The community offers a continuum of care from independent to assisted living to memory care, coupled with luxurious care that includes unique daily dining experiences, and a bistro and juice bar.
Management of health care is, of course, a central concern, and inside, you'll find registered health care practitioners, as well as assistance with activities of daily living. This community also welcomes post-surgery and other short stays. For all that, no words can capture the peace of mind and personal warmth you'll find in this community. Opened in 2017, this community combines experience and completely contemporary values in construction and design to create a happy, fresh environment. Forestview meets seniors' needs, certainly, but seeks to enhance your life beyond any expectations you might have.

If the new resident is open to it, we pair them with our Resident Ambassador. Our Resident Ambassador program pairs current residents that would like to volunteer with new residents. The Resident Ambassador escorts the new resident to meals and activities and introduces them to other residents. They also answer questions that they may not feel comfortable asking our team. In addition to this program, each department manager goes to see the new resident to address areas that they oversee. For example, our Chef will discuss dietary needs and our Life Enrichment Manager gives them a full overview and introduction to our Activities Program.
We have three large plots in our backyard that are used to grow vegetables and a few different types of berries. It is a joint venture with our Resident run Gardening Club and our Culinary team. When the produce is ripe, we clean them off and serve them within our dining room. This is about as local as you can get!
