Our perspective

Applewood Retirement Residence is an established retirement home from LEV Senior Living, the management behind other exemplary retirement homes across Ontario. You’ll feel an immediate sense of comfort when you’re introduced to this community. People who live in the community will tell you that it’s become their home and they’ve never looked back, since moving in.

Applewood allows you to live your whole life in this community and feel fulfilled, in a home-like setting with care available. One of the sure signs that this is a good place is the many seniors who have been here for several years or much longer and have made this their home. While staff and seniors contribute to the homey feel, there are also intimate spaces throughout the community that encourage coziness and personal warmth.

Family also has peace of mind thanks to the care and compassion that’s a hallmark of life here. When older family members move in, the cheerful environment rubs off on them. They become part of that, and in many cases, family sees both an immediate and lasting effect of this.

Ron MacKay, senior

Thirty days in Applewood, Peterborough, Ontario provided me with exactly the R&R I most needed after hip surgery. The professional nursing and PSW care available to me were enormously reassuring. The meals were excellent. I enjoyed a serviced, spacious, and comfortable room with bathroom and balcony at an affordable price and the opportunity to exercise regularly both inside and outside the building in a safe and delightful environment. My good fortune to recuperate among others in a situation like mine as well as to socialize with interesting long-term residents, added to my satisfaction and education.

All staff at Applewood are welcoming, caring, efficient, patient, and courteous. I am delighted to have made the decision to spend 30 days here. Applewood’s services, activities and facilities guaranteed simpler and faster recuperation for me and, of equal importance, essential reassurance, relief, and respite for my wife!

I highly recommend Applewood and its attentive and conscientious staff for post-surgery rehabilitation.

Mom has lived at Applewood for 7 years & it has been her home where staff are kind & caring, going beyond their job descriptions to help whoever needs it. All the staff, from top to bottom, have kept their residents safe during the Covid epidemic but also tried to make life interesting & fun in spite of all the extra work they've had to do. Applewood is at the top of any list of long term homes anywhere as far as we are concerned!

Since moving my dad into Applewood a few years ago we have had constant peace of mind knowing that he is well taken care of and yet has his independence. The staff at Applewood have always gone above and beyond to ensure a wonderful place for everyone. I now have other family members living at Applewood and we would highly recommend this residence to anyone.

My Mother has made friends, both with other residents and staff. She's happy and this is where she wants to live... Mother is well looked after and that the staff treat her as family.

Cindy Bartoli, family member

We toured all of the Peterborough retirement residences when we were looking for a spot for my father. Applewood immediately felt warm and welcoming. We have never regretted the decision. They have provided a home-like atmosphere, with caring staff, and plenty of activities for those so inclined. The management response during this COVID pandemic has been nothing short of heroic. Not a single case. [Google review posted September 2020]

Our family couldn't be happier with Applewood Retirement Residence. Applewood is a very welcoming home and the staff are very caring and compassionate ... always friendly and welcoming. Our Mom is constantly telling us how lovely all of the staff are and how kindly she is being treated. She also often speaks of how much she LOVES the food. :) Applewood was an easy choice after visiting other homes in Peterborough and our mother couldn't be happier here. It's been such a relief for our family knowing our Mom is so content and well cared for.
