This home features all the luxury amenities you might have heard about elsewhere (such as an onsite pub, swimming pool, movie theatre) but combined with an exceptionally caring staff, right in the Town Centre. Two of the exceptional features of this home are the large suites and the superb dining room that combines a cozy interior with delicious food. You'll look and feel so much better, with the onsite beauty salon and spa, the exercise room, and the in-house wellness centre.

The location of this retirement home adds to the appeal: close to downtown, with ample shopping, near the public library and a variety of health care services. The GO Station and other public transit are also nearby, and the residence is less than a minute off the 401.

Harmony Hill Retirement Community

This is a still-very-new, innovative retirement residence created by builders of several other exceptional communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Staff here believe in the best of care, mixing conscientiousness with fun and pleasure, making this a happy place to live for residents. Onsite, there is a pub, a movie theatre, a hairdresser and beauty salon, a wellness center, and other in-house luxuries. Harmony Square is the meeting place between the Grove (independent living suites) and Orchard buildings (full service, assisted living area), where you'll find these shared amenities and other services.

One exceptional feature of living at Harmony Hill is the food. Meals prepared by the residence's Red Seal Chef are a great pleasure to residents. Meals balance considerations of nutrition and deliciousness, along with choice. Food is prepared fresh daily, using local sources where that is feasible.

The Richmond Retirement Residence

175 North Front Street, Belleville, Ontario, K8P 4Y8

Belleville and Quinte Region seniors will find superior retirement care right in their home town, found in the Richmond. The Richmond is an elegant oasis of calm and care, nestled right on North Front Street, in downtown Belleville.

One of the things this community is very good at is helping community members transition from their traditional home to life in the community. Personalization is one key. Community members bring whatever personal belongings they want to bring here, to decorate their suite. But what makes the change a blessing is the response of staff. All of your questions are answered in a forthright, helpful manner, and everyone finds a way to help you feel at home here.
