“I was so excited to be one of the first residents to move into the new Trillium West Shore Village, after waiting a year & a half. It has really been a wonderful few months watching all the finishing touches come together. It truly is such a pleasure to now live here in such a beautiful building, being treated with respect & care. All of the staff are pleasant and willing to take that extra step to make your life easier. I can’t express how happy I am that I waited for my new ‘home’ to be ready for me. Now it’s ready for you too!”
