Our Perspective

How we see Holland Gardens - Verve Senior Living

Holland Gardens offers a full continuum of care, a unique service in Bradford. This allows independent seniors to move in on their own and acquire care as they need it, and creates an opportunity for couples with different care requirements to remain together in the same building. Making the move out of a traditional family home into a senior living community is challenging but we find that Holland Gardens makes it inviting! Friendships have formed quickly in this very new community.

Holland Gardens is the retirement destination for people from throughout central Ontario who want to live in a close-knit community of friends. Staff like to highlight the luxurious resort-like lifestyle here – and well they should! – but we think there’s a special downhome feel to Holland Gardens. While the warmth of community begins at the top, with supportive staff and administration, it easily extends throughout the building, where you witness many comfortable friendships among senior residents.

You’re going to love the food here, served by an exceptionally created culinary staff who love to make dining a great experience; meals are much more than just a plate of food, they’re food creations! (Check out the orange roughy with lemon butter.)

Interiors, here, are bright and spacious throughout. We love the look of the welcoming, warm lobby highlighted by a fireplace. When you look at suites you will see that there are four very ideal choices. While many people here will enjoy the independent living suites and the relaxed communal living, there is also assistance available for some basic personal healthcare needs.

WE offer independent living, assisted living, and memory care
We don’t like to think of ourselves as a typical senior living community — we’re a family. Every resident is treated with care and served with a smile every day

What supports do you offer residents as they adjust to life there?

Some of the supports we offer to residents when they arrive are, the entire management team introduces themselves. Our housekeeping lead visits and explains about meal times and how to work the washing machines. We also, introduce new residents to existing residents so they feel comfortable in the activites and dining room.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

Times have changed a lot. Now, older adults are proactively choosing retirement living because they’re attracted to the lifestyle, the services and amenities, and the peace of mind associated with knowing their needs can be taken care of, both today and tomorrow

What residents and their loved ones say about Holland Gardens - Verve Senior Living in reviews.

Mark Roberts, family member

"After touring three different retirement homes in the area we found Holland Gardens to be a perfect match for my mother! We really like the great variety of spacious apartments with beautiful views. Dining meals, a caring nursing staff, medication administration and proximity to shopping were among our top concerns and Holland Gardens had everything we were looking for! "

E J, family member

"After a very challenging time being isolated during the pandemic, my mother sold her house and moved into Holland Gardens in an Independent Living Suite in July 2021. We spoke with Shelley during our tour, and she was so welcoming and compassionate that it made a very difficult decision a lot easier. We are very thankful to the wonderful staff who have been so friendly, kind and attentive. My mother has enjoyed many activities and fun events and has met a lot of new friends since she moved in. ..."

Warren Hunter, family member

"My mom has lived there now for almost 2 months. She has changed so much. The environment, the kindness of the staff. She hasn't had one complaint. Not sure why the comments on the food, I have had 3-4 meals all very good. Mom tonight just went for an omelette, she loved it. I have had a veggie omelette too for lunch and thought it was fantastic. Not once in 2 months has she complained about food. Back to the Holland Gardens, I would of never moved mom in here if I knew there was a doubt. Staff....."
