Our Testimonials

  • I am a senior residing in the most beautiful retirement residence, Tiffany Village for the past 7.5 years and here to stay.

    Originally I am from the Philippines; left my Country in 1959 for the USA for medical training, then moved to Montreal. I met my husband, also a Medical Doctor there. We came to Newfoundland June 1965 to work and found the best place and I love the people. I’ve lived here for 53 years now.

    Next to my own home, I found Tiffany Village Retirement Residence the best place to spend the rest of my life. There are residents here from other Provinces and Countries that are happy and contented.

    Many activities are offered for residents to enjoy. Two recreation coordinators are available daily to schedule different activities such as exercises, games, music, movies, and resident socials.

    For health, 2 doctors’ check weekly and Tiffany Village have a complete nursing staff. Management and staff are always available to help with a smile.
