Villa Colombo Toronto
Nestled in the heart of our 10-acre community complex, Villa Colombo Toronto is a designated ethno-specific facility that encompasses all aspects of Italian life and culture into the care and services it provides. Located near the Columbus Centre, and backing onto acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with distinct architectural features and fountains that emulate the tranquility of old Italy, our long-term care facility is an ideal home for your loved ones.
Villa Colombo Toronto has invaluable expertise with 40 years experience serving seniors and is highly regarded in providing culturally appropriate long-term care and community services, which may include, but are not limited to:
- Italian language services;
- Cultural and spiritual care; including daily Mass
- Employment of bilingual staff;
- Community education;
- Culturally specific dementia and palliative care;
- Culturally appropriate food, including a glass of red wine with meals
Our high trained and professional staff are dedicated to the enjoyment and safety of the residents and clients in their care. Villa Colombo Toronto provides 24-hour nursing and visiting health services, such as dentistry, x-ray, audiology, physiotherapy, and more.
Guided by and in a manner faithful to the principles of our Italian heritage and culture, we serve our community, residents and elderly clients. We provide the care they need to enjoy life to the fullest with dignity and independence in safe, secure and home like environment.
Villa Colombo Homes for the Aged Inc., part of the Villa Charities Inc. group of organizations, prides itself on providing quality long-term residential care and community services to seniors in a culturally sensitive environment that honours the Italian heritage. This is the mission of Villa Colombo and it has been achieving this mission since its opening in 1976.
Villa Colombo cares for 391 residents living in our Long Term Care (LTC) home in addition to providing community services to over 700 clients living in the community. Services include: Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Programs, Supportive Housing, and more.
When Villa Colombo was established over 40 years ago, it was built to cater to the growing population of elderly Italians. To this day, Villa Colombo remains a unique facility with a tradition of excellence and quality care that predominantly caters to Roman Catholic Italian seniors. However, the level and complexity of care needs within the community is changing. Villa Colombo is always looking for ways to expand the volume and service provided to members of the Italian-Canadian Community.
Villa Colombo is, and primarily operates as, a Long Term Care facility. This means that it serves as a home for the elderly who are no longer able to physically take care of themselves in their own homes. Long term care homes are designed for people who require the availability of 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting. LTC homes offer higher levels of personal care and support than those typically offered by either retirement homes or supportive housing. In addition to the care services provided, Villa Colombo provides residents with complete meal service, daily exercise and other activities, and religious and spiritual services; all provided while being culturally sensitive to our predominantly Italian clients.
Villa Colombo also has an extensive community services program. Through the Community Services department, Villa Colombo offers various Adult Day Programs for seniors still living at home, a meals on wheels program that partners with other community organizations facilitating preparation and delivery of daily meals to hundreds of clients, and three supportive housing buildings that provide basic nursing and care services to mostly independent seniors.
