VIVA Barrhaven Retirement Residence – Nepean, ON

Senior Living in Nepean

The modern Barrhaven has it roots in the 1960s, when its farmland was developed into spacious lots with lovely homes for young families, and it has evolved into a hearty community, blending the convenience of urban living with the serenity of the countryside. Viva Barrhaven reflects the modernity of its community, offering unequalled amenities, luxurious accommodations and the promise of new friendships. 


Viva Barrhaven is of a spacious, elegant and warm design: You can sip a cold lager after a long summer’s walk in our welcoming pub, eliminate air shots from your golf game with our VIVAlinks golf simulator and begin your day with a vigorous swim in our saltwater pool.

Our handsome suites are available as studios, with one bedroom (and an optional den) and with two bedrooms and baths. All suites feature spacious walk-in closets, seated showers, large windows that fill rooms with natural light and sleek kitchenettes (in independent-living suites).  


Viva Barrhaven is a retirement home with the amenities of a splendid hotel but the intangible qualities of home, like the serenity that washes over you when you return to it. We live well: We pamper ourselves in our spa, sip lattes in our café, workout in our brain gym, taste wines, visit local farmer’s markets and watch films. And …


As Virginia Woolf famously said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” At Viva Barrhaven, we dine well. Our chef brings the goodness of the organic fruits, herbs and vegetables from our Viva Victory Garden to each delectable dish.

Our charming private dining room is available for occasions when you’d like to entertain in style.


We offer services that will make your life better in some way, like our weekly flat linen cleaning service, our emergency response system and our regularly scheduled shuttle bus excursions.

Should you be thinking about hanging up your garden rake ­– and your kitchen apron, why not visit us at Viva Barrhaven, where you can live in your way, wrapped in convenience, security and possibilities.
