Villa Italia



“There is such a warm feeling you get, the moment you step into the Villa Italia! I feel it every time I’m there. The staff seems to go out of their way to be caring towards all residents and their families. My father has benefited greatly from the activities, exercise program and the richness of daily life at the Villa.”

“I just wanted to thank you again for inviting me to perform last Friday afternoon. I think I had more fun interacting with the residents and staff than they had watching my performance! I just wanted to take the opportunity to commend the staff and management at Villa Italia for such a caring and vibrant atmosphere.

I’ve performed in various retirement homes from Niagara Falls to Port Credit, and I must honestly say that Villa Italia impressed me the most. It’s very evident that the management is dedicated to providing residents the best quality of life possible. The rapport between staff and residents speaks volumes, and your establishment is certainly a place that I would recommend to my aging relatives. Keep up the good work!”

“The first week of January, my father, Ralph Giulietti was hospitalized for malnourishment. He was so thin and weak, he couldn’t even stand up. My siblings and I insisted he move to Villa Italia. …….. The care my father is receiving is beyond exceptional. He constantly sings the praises of the staff, especially the dining room crew, saying everyone is so friendly and can’t do enough for him. He is happier and healthier – and you have brought an indescribable piece of mind to us! Thank you.”

Maria Giulietti

“Everyone that I have met at Villa Italia has been absolutely wonderful and helpful. I don’t remember ever having met such a wonderful group of individuals and great team. There is not one person there that hasn’t impressed me. From the moment that I first walked into your facility, it has been a truly enjoyable experience….I wish that every organization was run like Villa Italia because the world would be a much better place.”

Ode to Villa Italia
There is a place not far away
Where such beauty can be found
Stop a while and seek an entrance
To this Shangri-La of sound

There’s beauty all around you
From the paintings on the walls
To the beauty of the furnishings
And flowers over all

Villa Italia is its name
There’s peace, tranquility and love
Smiles on everyone’s faces
Guests and staff reflect the love

You will be transformed to have
This atmosphere surround you
The peace and love creeps into you
Villa Italia will astound you

Poem by Terri Campbell

“We, the family, want to thank all of the wonderful staff for the care and kindness our father has received over the past four years. We appreciate how everyone has gone out of their way to make him comfortable and happy in several ways. Reg enjoyed his home at Villa and we always felt secure in knowing he did.”

“We have been impressed with Villa Italia since the first time we walked through the doors. Your facilities are top-notch and the extra level of dedication provided by yourself and your staff were greatly appreciated during Dad’s short stay there.”

“Most people aren’t aware of the energy and responsibility that is required to manage, regulate, listen, respond to, and satisfy a group of seniors from different cultures, backgrounds, and personalities. Seniors are very wary and cautious when they first enter a senior retirement home…they aren’t sure what to expect…the residents thank Pat and all his staff for making our lives at the Villa pleasant and creating a family atmosphere, we can call home.”

Ernie Palango, Resident

“With sincere appreciation to all the amazing staff at Villa Italia who have been so helpful, kind, and caring to our mother, Dorothy Amer. You made her stay so enjoyable and she was so proud to call Villa Italia her home. Thank you all again. We will never forget how well you looked after our Mother.”

Dorothy Amer's Family

“We wish to thank the staff of Villa Italia for making our mother’s stay such an enjoyable one. Our mother had only good memories. We know from her interactions with the staff and from our personal experience whenever we sought help or advice from any of the employees that they were compassionate and eager to help. Laura, Raquel, and Krista, to name a few, have always gone out of their way to ensure the well-being of our mother. We thank you all for making our mother’s stay a most pleasant and memorable one.”
