It’s a spectacularly well-appointed, award-winning retirement home that encourages carefree living and improved wellness in residents. Seniors gain a revitalized outlook on life here.

The environment is brimming with astonishing features ranging from a theatre to a beauty salon to a health and wellness centre, where residents exercise together and encourage each other.

The indoor swimming pool is a bright, naturally lit, active gathering place.

Activities include fitness classes as well as recreational swimming. Everyday activities include billiards, games, entertainment, a library, bingo, Bible study, bocce ball, and the list goes on.

Staff is friendly...warm inviting feel to the facility... residents were enjoying the exercise room and the library as well as dining when I was there.

This place is totally AWESOME !!! My Father just moved in last Thursday and he loves it here. I'm very impressed as well. I had lunch ( in a Private dining room that reminded me of my Grandmother's dining room for special occasions, filled with antique China Cabinets with old china dishes ) and the food was great ( I couldn't even eat all of my main entree ). The Studio Unit he has is just the right size ( and he has alot of stuff ) and the whole place seems more like a resort than an institution. Even has an indoor pool with hot tub.

Marie, resident

Before calling Richmond Woods my home, I lived in Kingston, Ontario. Following the passing of my husband, my son and daughter in law wanted me to live closer to them in London. They did most of the research and thought that Richmond Woods was the nicest of the retirement residences that they toured; I was pleased to be closer to my family.

I would definitely recommend Richmond Woods to friends. I love the location, situated with some surrounding forest, and I really like the staff members. My advice to those searching for a new home is to weigh the things most important to you. For example, when I first moved in I Iived in a spacious suite upstairs, but I decided I'd prefer ground level with easier access to the outdoors because I love to go on walks and spend lots of time on my patio. And bring along the sentimental things and let everything else go. I have a desk that I purchased at an auction with my husband. I secretly bid on it and he did not find out the highest bidder until it was delivered at our home!

One of my favourite parts about living here is the bus trips that take place through the recreation group. I love being able to get out and the arrival back at Richmond Woods always makes me feel like I'm coming home.

Ray, resident

I like the idea that healthy meals were built into the cost of living here, and I didn't have to shop for groceries or make meals. I enjoy the many conveniences [here] including the gym, library and pool. I highly recommend it as a retirement choice. The dining room creates opportunity for relationships and a sense of community. The staff do an excellent job of keeping the residence clean and I love the easy access to patio where I can enjoy the summer time and entertain friends outside!
