Our Perspective

How we see Palermo Village - Verve Senior Living

The phrase "reasonable cost" might be heard rarely when it comes to living anywhere in the city of Oakville — but the value you receive in senior care at Palermo Village means the phrase applies! And then again, there's no price tag you can put on truly compassionate treatment. The Village is widely praised for the way staff treats residents. "Friendly" and "helpful" are terms used as a matter of course by family members, when describing the staff here. There's nothing better than hearing that your senior loved one loves where they live.

Modern interiors and in-house features are great to have in a retirement home, of course. But what you're really looking for is the feeling of welcome, caring people around you and a hundred other little things that make your new place into a real home. That's what seniors in community at Palermo Village cite as the big difference between this and other places in the area. A welcoming and comforting atmosphere is not something you can view in a brochure or on a website, it needs to be experienced in person.

That comforting atmosphere is added to by the setting, the building itself. There's a theme of brightness and vivacity to the layout of this community. That translates into an easy transition for many of the people who choose to live here, and into confidence by family members, knowing that they have found a great new home for the one they love.

Jeff Barwell, family member

"Big thank you to all the Palermo staff for the support you gave our mother. Our Mom required extra attention and we were very pleased with the gentle and comforting way the staff took care of our mom. Palermo also offered mom companionship and togetherness. Most times when we dropped in, we found mom was involved in friendly conversation with the many residents. Palermo also offered many activities to fill mom's days, from small outings, to movies and bingo nights. She really did enjoy those ext..."

Debi Coburn, family member

"Palermo Village is wonderful - no other way to put it. My dad loved his big windows, and spent much time out on his balcony. All of the staff are so friendly and kind, especially when Dad's health took a downward turn - they provided him with all the compassion and care of a family member. The COVID response was amazing - so safe, and even when the residents were unable to visit with others, the staff kept them connected and engaged. The size of Palermo Village is perfect - big enough for ame..."

Steve Allen, family member

"My Mum and Dad moved into Palermo in March, 2020, just as Covid started. They felt comfortable and welcomed from the very first day. When my Dad passed away a few months later my Mum moved out of Palermo to live with family. When she felt comfortable being on her own again, she chose to return to Palermo. Although we visited several other retirement homes Palermo came out on top. It is a safe, comfortable and caring place. "
