    neighbourhood

    Harmony Hill is a community within a larger very active community of Oshawa. Centrally and conveniently located in the north end of the city with access to a wide variety of shopping, restaurants and community centres while still maintaining a small town feel with views of the countryside to the east and Lake Ontario to the south. A walk across the street and you are able to see the latest movies or a short drive and you are on the 401 heading into Toronto or maybe to the theatre to catch a live performance in Port Hope. Oshawa offers some exceptional festivals and cultural events throughout the year that are right in our backyard. Bowmanville to the east is a small town with big activity from festivals to parades, shopping and dining.

    My mother loved every minute at Harmony Hills. Her place was sunny, bright and the perfect size for her; the social events varied and interesting and the residents warm and friendly.
    The staff are fantastic; they were exceptionally helpful and caring during my mother's last months of life - always available when she needed medical attention or help, willing to go the extra mile to ensure she was comfortable and safe. I can't praise them enough for providing a warm, caring environment for my mom....and for myself and our family. We felt a part of the community, warmly welcomed and as at-home there as my mother. Thank you Harmony Hill - Jeanette

    Respite Care expand

    I recently stayed here in respite care following a hip replacement. I was here for three full weeks and will unconditionally recommend staying here to anyone. Even though I was in temporary respite I was afforded all the respect and amenities of a full time resident.... I was very impressed with the variety of meals and the regularity of fresh fruit and salads...I was able to experience the coconut and banana (yes real bananas) cream pies.

    What a wonderful caring and sharing bunch of people. You made me feel very welcome.

    I arrived straight from the hospital and on Friday instead of Monday. Yet Cydney and Tammy greeted me. Cydney was my contact to come there and Tammy is the PSW.

    For the first week I needed tray delivery for my meals. What a luxury and everyone who delivered or inquired as to my preferences were pleasant and helpful. Ultimately I went to the dining room and the dining room staff were amazingly upbeat and interactive.

    Walking to the dining room and down the safely carpeted, well lit corridors contributed greatly to my recovery. Friendly residents are out and about at all times so you never need to worry should you feel faint or take a tumble. PLUS I must mention that on arrival you are outfitted with an emergency call bracelet.

    - Donna

    This is a still-very-new, innovative retirement residence created by builders of several other exceptional communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Staff here believe in the best of care, mixing conscientiousness with fun and pleasure, making this a happy place to live for residents. Onsite, there is a pub, a movie theatre, a hairdresser and beauty salon, a wellness center, and other in-house luxuries. Harmony Square is the meeting place between the Grove (independent living suites) and Orchard buildings (full service, assisted living area), where you'll find these shared amenities and other services.

    One exceptional feature of living at Harmony Hill is the food. Meals prepared by the residence's Red Seal Chef are a great pleasure to residents. Meals balance considerations of nutrition and deliciousness, along with choice. Food is prepared fresh daily, using local sources where that is feasible.
