At V!VA Retirement Communities, our retirement homes bring a combination of state-of-the-art safety features and trustworthy personnel to give our Community Members comfort as they enjoy the surroundings and features of our homes. Here’s what you need to know about our retirement home and the safety and security features we provide.
About Our Retirement Homes
Moving into a retirement community can be a big change, and with big changes comes uncertainty. Safety features in retirement homes can bring ease to the change by helping to reduce the risks of seniors falling, getting lost, or having a health emergency. Cameras help Team Members keep track of when and where Community Members come and go.
In order for a retirement community to be safe and secure, there needs to be more than just security measures and technology in place. At V!VA Retirement Communities, we ensure that our Team Members are thoroughly trained and have the required up-to-date certifications. We conduct background checks before we hire Team Members, which helps our Community Members feel safe and better trust the team responsible for their safety and comfort.
We also strive to create a friendly, social environment, where our Team Members and Community Members can interact in a positive way that brings great ease to seniors who may feel alone or anxious elsewhere. We provide the following safety and security features at our communities:
Emergency response system and 24-hour staffing
Administration of medication
Access to nursing assistance 24 hours a day
State-of-the-art fire safety system
24-hour concierge for your safety, security, and assistance
Emergency response system featuring in-suite call buttons and wearable pendants/fobs

Delicious and Nutritious Meals
Keeping seniors safe and secure also involves providing the right food to fuel their bodies. In order to live a healthy lifestyle, seniors should be eating nutritious and fulfilling meals. At V!VA Retirement Communities, our menus are developed by a certified dietician, who specializes in senior health within the parameters of the Canada Food Guide. We also provide seniors with three meals daily, prepared by Red Seal chefs.
Book a Trial Stay
Trial stays are a great opportunity for you or your loved one to get a first-hand idea of what it is like to live in a retirement community. Visitors can experience all the benefits of the community and determine if it provides the comfort, safety, and relaxation they are seeking. Trial stays can be booked for a weekend, week, or month, depending on the purpose of your visit. Some people book trial stays to get a feel for the community, to recover after an injury, or to simply enjoy a staycation. With our restaurant-quality daily meals, housekeeping services, amenities, and assisted living services, you or your loved one will have a truly enjoyable time.
