My mother recently stayed in respite care at VIVA Whitby Shores following her knee replacement surgery. She was very pleased with her experience; the staff here are incredible!! From the moment we walked in, they were so warm & welcoming. And throughout her stay, the Wellness Team were quick to respond to her needs, help her move around her room, deliver ice for her cooling machine; whatever she needed was taken care of for her. I knew she was in good hands throughout her full 2 week stay, and to be honest, now that she’s back home she misses the service – particularly the kindness & company of the team + the delicious meals, tea & cookies delivered to her room. If she undergoes another major surgery, she will definitely consider returning to this facility. Staying here also helped her recuperate more quickly; even the doctors are impressed with her progress. We would highly recommend VIVA Whitby Shores to friends & family. 5+ stars!

If you are looking for the perfect retirement community in Durham Region, look no further. Absolutely beautiful facility with well appointed suites and marvelous common areas, professional, supportive and compassionate staff, and exceptional lifestyle options.

My Mom has lived here since its opening six months ago, and even though there have been challenges brought about by COVID, the staff have exemplified the five values of VIVA: Be a friend; Make it better; Love what you do; Work as a team; Have fun! Staff did everything within their power and within the legislation to build a community feeling through relationships and offering very creative fun activities through the support of The Wellness Team.

Common spaces are gorgeous from the activity room, the pool, the pub, the theatre, the golf simulator and the dining room. Speaking of the dining room, the food is restaurant quality under the direction of their creative executive chef and staff.

The leadership team is thoughtful and kind. Both my Mom and all of our family have felt appreciative of their welcoming nature and understanding.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I would highly recommend VIVA Whitby Shores.

My mother moved into Whitby Shores in June 2020. Given the Covid pandemic there were understandably a few restrictions but the staff have been tremendous at welcoming her and ensuring she settled in quickly. They are truly thoughtful and caring!
Shortly after Mom moved in, she had a few larger items that needed to be brought up to her suite. Understandably no family members are allowed into the suites at this time for covid health &safety reasons but the staff have been very helpful and accommodating and making this happen. I would especially like to give a shout out to Cam, the maintenance director who has been incredibly kind and thoughtful.
If you are considering a retirement community I would highly recommend that you visit Viva Whitby Shores and give them an opportunity to introduce you to what they have to offer.

My parents moved into VIVA Whitby Shores in early March, just after they opened and just before the pandemic. Our experience thus far has been exceptional to say the least. The facility is beautiful, but the key to it being exceptional is the staff. They truly care about the residents and they obviously love their jobs. Their main concern during the pandemic has been the safety of everyone, but at the same time, making sure there were lots of activities and excitement to keep everyone occupied. I would highly recommend VIVA. The staff are amazing!
