Verena turned out to be the best facility for my mother-in-law. The units are up to date and comfortable, the staff is excellent, and the food is very good. She has dietary issues and they have worked with her to come up with dishes that she can eat. Although her children did a lot of the research, the decision to live at Verena was hers - and I think she agrees that she made a good choice.

I visited this facility
Verena Lifestyle Residences is located a safe distance from a very busy highway, surrounded by beautiful forest in a very serene setting. At the footstep of their driveway entrance, every imaginable shopping center, every restaurant, grocery stores, and medical facilities right at your doorstep. It's a 4-storey building with exquisite dining hall in the middle, first-class linen tablecloths, waitresses all in uniforms, multiple entrees at each meal, made to order food if you want. Salads, soup of the day, and three to four desserts. Everything is tailored to the person's medical conditions, diabetic diet, low-salt, low-carb, whatever.
They have one or two bedroom units, granite countertops, full kitchens, every appliance needed for them to do their own cooking, but the price of the unit includes the meals. They have a doctor that comes once a week to check blood pressure and check hearing. Life alerts are mandatory to wear that's included in the price, as well as a maid service that comes in change sheets once a month and vacuum weekly. They have a fitness center and shopping days. Everything was 5-star as far as I'm concern. I just wish the units more of them had easier accessible walk-in showers. Most of them have tubs. They should all be showers with bars and seats in them.

The people at Verena are friendly and willing to go the extra mile. It didn't take the staff any time at all to know our names - and my in-laws have a large family! They have had special events on occasions like St. Patrick's Day. The food has been great when I have eaten there. The staff keep track of things, which gives us an extra leve of comfort. There are so many activities to do for residents. It's bright and cheerful all throughout. I wouldn't mind living here!
