Our Perspective

How we see Port Credit Residences - Verve Senior Living

Innovation and newness are a hallmark of life at Port Credit Residences. This was one of the first GTA communities to employ the Brain Gym program, which helps train seniors in improving their memory and handling stress. The program even throws in some physical exercise. The availability of the community's nurse practitioner was also a Toronto first, when the building opened in 2011. Visiting "therapy dogs" are one more aspect of life at Port Credit Residences that make this community stand out.

Walking distance from the shores of Lake Ontario, Port Credit Residences offers a very modern and contemporary take on senior care. One of the biggest draws of this community is the proximity to the lakefront and the spectacular views afforded, even as you sit in your suite, most of these suitably located on the building's corners. Inside, the décor is very modern and contemporary, working shades of brown, taupe, blue and teal.

While location is important, care and community make the Residences extra special. There are warm gathering places throughout the building, from an open-concept piano room to the ultra-modern, woodgrain-interior dining room. One of the many popular places within the community is the indoor pool. There are aquafit classes and several types of therapy available in the pool. It's also equipped with a ramp entrance, one of many accessible features you'll find throughout the Residences. There are a variety of facets to care here, notably, a nurse practitioner onsite five days a week and on call around the clock. The nurse practitioner oversees all health needs of residents, ranging from administering blood tests to working with available doctors.

"My mother-in-law lived in the Port Credit Residences... in the nicest one bedroom suite. It had a beautiful view of a park and a swimming pool.

Unannounced I walked in one day and e..."
