Greenview Senior Care Residence, operating in the beautiful Don Mills neighbourhood since 1979, is a retirement community dedicated to compassion, safety, and personalized care. We are focused on providing high levels of care, similar to found in a public nursing home, except in an atmosphere that fosters care, compassion, dignity, security, respect, and safety. This allows your loved one to live a healthy active lifestyle.
We stand out among retirement communities in Toronto because of our many complex care options, including specialized care for residents with alzheimer's and dementia. Our home-like setting creates an atmosphere that is inviting and comfortable. This sense of home strengthens feelings of belonging and security while reducing feelings of loneliness and confusion. We understand how important this is to our residents and their loved ones.
We recognize how hard the transition can be when your loved one moves into a retirement residence which is why we try to make that transition easier by providing two options of suites (private and semi-private), and customized healthcare services which allow your loved one to age in place without having to move again!
Our Services Include:
Three meals served daily, prepared by our Executive Red Seal Chef and his team in our dining room (breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

Continence Care: The health and wellness team will create an individual continence care program based on the needs of our residents. This could include assistance with frequent washroom visits, ordering and changing of continence products to ensure your loved one is always feeling fresh, and assistance out of bed with our hoyer lifts.

Peter Lee, Executive Red Seal Chef
Peter’s career in culinary began in 2004. While pursuing his Music degree, he was inspired by a quote his percussion teacher once said:
“Avoid putting your hobby as your career, or else what would you do on your time off?”
After pondering on this thought, he came to a realization that he also really enjoys cooking. So he decided to pursue his career in Culinary Arts instead, as the trend at that point in time was all about “Fine Dining”. Peter then took two diploma courses from Liaison College of Culinary Arts where he learned the fundamentals of cooking, and then pursued a Culinary Management diploma from Humber College. From there, his passion and dedication for the restaurant industry was recognized and his culinary career took off after being placed at a Fine Dining Italian Restaurant in Mississauga. This is where he earned his Inter-Provincial Red Seal certification for cooking and was classically trained and embraced by a Master Chef from Madrid, Spain: Fernando Garcia. They cooked consistently for players from the well-recognized Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors.
Needless to say, on his time off, Peter still enjoys playing the drums where he serves as a member of the touring worship team at his church. Peter and his wife currently reside in Markham Ontario.
Amber Joyes, Sous Chef
I am a hard working and determined individual and it all started in grade 10.
"Back in 2009, I was one of the lucky grade 10 students who got into the grade 11 bistro course."
For the next three years of high school, I continued my journey in the culinary world. I was unsure of what I wanted to become so I took the extra year of high school in 2011 to explore the real world of culinary in co-op. That co-op experience led me to a wonderful place of work, which hired me on to be an apprentice in 2012. Two years later in 2014, I graduated from Humber College with my diploma in Culinary Skills. Throughout my seven years working, I have worked alongside many chefs who have helped me grow to become the skilled chef I am today.
In my spare time, I love to play baseball and continue to pursue my love for baking with my cake business "Desserts by Gingie." I have a wonderful husband, Dylan and we currently reside in Newmarket.
Farm to Table
Metta Lifestyles' Farm to Table initiative promotes sourcing and serving locally grown produce, purchased from local farmers or grown by the residents of Metta Lifestyles communities as part of our Horticulture Therapy program! Not only does sourcing locally benefit the local economy, but provides our residents with a more nutritious, natural, and delicious dining experience free of preservatives!
Our Health and Wellness team is on staff 24 hours a day. We make your loved one’s health and safety a priority. When your loved one joins our community, you can feel confident that they have constant access to the help they need.
As people age, they require different care. Greenview is equipped to handle all types of senior care allowing our residents to age in place. Our dedicated memory care wing and programming allows seniors to live a healthy active lifestyle.
The memory care program at Metta Lifestyles is specifically designed to care for seniors living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in a dedicated, secure area within some of our communities. Memory care community residents receive specialized care services.
Our memory care philosophy requires a deep understanding of who our residents are, so staff may adjust their interactions and respond with whatever is needed in the moment.
News & Activities
Very Well-Cared For
“I want to thank the staff at Greenview for the care and thought given to my dear mother. Whenever I visited her in the past year, I found her clean, cared for and dressed in matching clothes. Her room was clean and her drawers were neat … she was very well-cared for. I feel very lucky to have found a home like Greenview with the caring staff that you are.”
- Anna W.
Extras Made Her Golden Years Happy
“We would like to thank each one of you for the kindness given to our aunt during her stay at Greenview. Your care made her golden years a happy time. Whenever asked about her home, we were pleased to tell people where she lived and how happy we were for her. We told people of the extra things you did for us such as her birthday and an ice-cream cone for our granddaughter. We very much appreciate your efforts during the last three years.”
