Our perspective

We could highlight many exceptional things about this community, but memory care at the Ravines' is offered by experts highly specialized in this sphere. The interior design focuses on neighbourhoods, where dementia patients live in familiar surroundings that avoid the confusion created by more clinical environments. The Ravines' Healthy Minds Program is multi-faceted, focused on providing compassionate, well-rounded care for seniors with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Included in the program are support groups for family and other loved ones, music therapy that stimulates memory and positive interaction, staff trained in the Gentle Persuasive Approach, therapy through multi-sensory environments, and other components.

Ravines Senior Suites offers bright, beautiful surroundings in one of the most desirable locations in Ottawa. Situated close to both the Rideau River greenspace and the heart of downtown Ottawa, this is a perfect choice for the discerning Ottawa Region senior. Spacious, elegantly-appointed suites open onto pleasant views of the local greenery are just one of the notable features of this senior care option.

Alavida Lifestyles focuses on creating a unique, exceptional senior care experience and bringing that experience to select neighbourhoods in the Ottawa area. When you investigate this location, you will find that there is a vision behind things. Care staff and services staff are all focused on delivering an excellent client experience that meets the needs of the whole person. Residents in this community will tell you that everyone here is made to feel special, and for many people who have never experienced such care and attention, the Ravines can be an amazing discovery.

We've collected reviews and testimonials from around the web that are relevant to you: those from residents and their loved ones.

Judith B, family member

My parents were residents of the Ravines Seniors' Suites and then the Retirement Residence from 2014 to 2021. The staff and management were caring, friendly and helpful. At times when my parents required additional assistance, staff was there to help and then followed-up to make sure that everything was okay. Sam Sourchi, the General Manager, is a skilled and proficient manager, who was able to resolve issues which at times felt impossible to resolve. The facilities are pleasant, clean and safe. This is definitely a nice place to live.

Donna Brule, family member

My mom lives here and she loves it.

Jim Landry, resident

Ravines winter stay offer allowed us to move quickly and experience Senior Retirement living which has been most enjoyable. Fine dining, exercises classes, pool, daily events and excellent staff have made all aspects of this life style change more than exceed our expectations. Retirement living is like being on a cruise ship without the ocean!

Sheila Hammond, resident

My husband and I moved into the Ravines on January 1, 2019. Melissa gave us a wonderful tour of the building late in the fall. We had looked at several residences before the Ravines and after our tour was over we were exceedingly happy to sign on the dotted line. The staff here are wonderful. The residents are happy, friendly and motivated. There are many things to occupy one's time - the pool and hot tub, an attached room with all the exercise equipment one would need and several types of chair or standing exercises given by professional teachers. There are frequent outings on the bus and the food at the Ravines is excellent. We have been very happy with our choice of residence and the extremely friendly and professional atmosphere. We very highly recommend this senior's residence.

Janet Ross, family member

My mother has been a resident at the Ravines on the 2nd floor for the past 7 years. She suffers from Dementia. Her care has been excellent. The management has been responsive and kind. PSW's Sandra, Patrick and Steve are an asset to their profession.

Elaine Bouchard, resident

I have been to three retirement homes and for me the quality of life at The Ravines is high. I like using the pool, the gym, the exercises are fantastic, and the dining room is neat and clean. I would recommend living here to anyone.

Jonathan Hood, family member
