Where is V!VA Thornhill Woods Retirement Community located?

When can I book a suite?

Suites can be booked anytime. Feel free to contact us through the form below and we will be happy to get in touch and arrange a date and time to show you all the different suites available.

Can I use my Veterans Affairs benefits to pay for some of the services?

Yes. We will break out the cost of services covered such as housekeeping and laundry for you to submit to VA for redemption. Check first with your VA councillor and we will give them all the information they require.

Will I be able to have family and friends over for a meal or visit?

Absolutely. In fact, once they taste the gourmet meals and enjoy our pub and other amenities, they'll probably be asking you how soon they can come back! These are your guests, and this is your home. Have your bridge club in, invite the family over for supper, enjoy a cup of coffee in the bistro with your friends. Entertain in the privacy of your suite or make use of the gardens and other relaxing common areas. We even have a private dining room that you can use for special celebrations or just to bring the group together.

Do I have to sit at the same table for each meal?

No, in fact we encourage people to circulate and meet as many community members as possible. We have several large communal tables that seat 6-10 people, and we have smaller tables for more intimate dining occasions. There will be open windows of opportunity for each meal time, not specific times or sittings that one must be there for. So you can come to the dining room at your leisure anytime within that window for each meal.

Can I have family and friends sleep over?

Of course – it’s your home, so your guests are always welcome!

Can I bring my own furniture?

Certainly. The suites are very generous in size, so you'll be able to bring many of your pieces to your new suite. As you look at the suite layouts, notice all the storage space and the walk-in closets. We even have some lockers on the lower level available for use to our residents, offering you still more storage room.

Do I need a referral to be able to rent a suite at V!VA Thornhill Woods?

No, simply contact us directly and decide for yourself what type of suite you want: studio, one bedroom, one bedroom plus den or a two bedroom suite. There are many different layouts and sizes, and we feel confident you'll find the one that's just right for you.
