Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


V!VA makes great homes, and V!VA Thornhill Woods makes a great home for seniors with families in Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Markham areas. The hallmark of life here is the spacious suites and excellent dining, but the good living extends well beyond those features. There are movie nights in the onsite theatre, and there's also an onsite pub, as well as a café. Assisted living includes all manner of care, such as feeding, bathing, care with mobility, and more. The number of members here makes it ideal to find an ample collection of new friends, while still being selective.

There are many signature features of living here. Perks! is a brightly lit café where you can sit and enjoy freshly baked cakes and sip delicious coffee or tea with friends. Pints! is the onsite pub where you can play some pool or watch the Leafs, Raps, Jays and Argos, with your in-house friends. Many people choose to exercise regularly, by working out in the wellness center, swimming in the saltwater pool, or joining the aqua fit class.
