  • This Guelph retirement home creates a vibrant community for seniors, where all care requirements are well taken care of. The word “community” applies strongly to Riverside Glen; it truly feels like a village, where people look out for each other, know each other by name, and come to care about each other personally. Its innovative architecture, laid out like a small town, is a seniors-friendly environment that includes a general store, library, an outdoor cafe, a hairdresser, and other outlets. The village concept also extends to residents living in neighbourhoods where every wing has people with similar care needs.

  • This community began as exclusively long term care, which will still be a key part of the Village. The spectrum of options will include both assisted living and memory care. This will make it ideal for couples with different care needs to remain together in the same community, if one spouse is independent, but the other requires care. It’s also ideal for families and seniors who anticipate shifting care needs in the future. You won’t need to move again.
