Our Perspective

How we see VIVA Whitby Shores

Expect top of the line luxury and comfort here, from spectacular external scenery to the spaciousness of your suite. Over its history, V!VA has been redefining what senior living means. This promises to be another step forward. People in V!VA Communities expect — and receive — the very best, and that’s what you can expect at Whitby Shores as well.

The most immediately striking thing about Whitby Shores is, of course, the vista of the Lake Ontario shorefront. There’s a waterfront park and yacht club here, and it’s safe to assume that this will entail an exciting life for residents. As indicated by the name of the company, you’ll find good living here.

One of the things you can look forward to is the variety of activities and interests you can indulge. One day to the next will be full of variety, happy surprises, and little moments of grace. The slate of activities here includes lectures, fitness classes, cooking demonstrations, wine tasting events, and more. There are also outings to local shopping, the local race track, big league sports events, and art galleries or museums. V!VA makes every day as interesting as you want it to be. That means you can choose to head out with friends to the latest activity ... or maybe spend a quiet afternoon in your suite reading ... whatever you choose!

Over the first couple weeks you will have many chances to get oriented with the building by Team Members and Community Members.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

The warm atmosphere, high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows make the building bright and spacious. The colour scheme and finishes give it a sense of class, but the friendly faces will make it feel like home.

Reviews of VIVA Whitby Shores

What residents and their loved ones say about VIVA Whitby Shores in reviews.

Paul Nolan, family member

"We cannot say enough positive comments that reflect the enthusiasm and care that each employee showed us... Mom is now in her 2nd month living at VIVA and she just loves it. We couldn’t be happier for her. "

Debbie B., family member

"Diana took my husband and myself for a tour of this Community. I was looking at it specifically for Assisted Living for my mother - although they do have a variety of care levels available. The building is beautiful inside and out. The resident rooms are bright and spacious as are any of the other areas throughout the residence. It had a resort type feel to it - bright and cheery. Ample parking is available, which isn't always the case. The fact that they have a nurse, on duty 24 hours a day is ..."

Catharine Wade, family member

"My father is enjoying this residence immensely. The on-site care is very convenient. The staff are friendly and the food is good. They really care about the residents and their families. It's a great improvement on my dad's quality of life!"
