River Road Retirement Residence Review
4067 River Road, Niagara Falls, Ontario, L2E 3E6
River Road Retirement Residence offers a number of singular delights, from its spectacular views of the Niagara River to its spacious, clean and welcoming interiors. There are a lot of things to love about this place, but you're most likely to be immediately taken with the spectacular view of the river and gorge. It's just a short walk to the Whirlpool Aero Car, with its lookout area, just across from Great Wolf Lodge. Of course, Horseshoe Falls is a short drive up the road the other way. The local beauty makes it extra appealing for families to visit here.
But then inside … well! We were impressed with the open concept main floor that includes two fireplace rooms, games room and dining lounge. Interiors are all very well-kept and clean. If you are looking for classical elegance in a local community, you will find it here, with prices remarkably lower than you will pay for a similarly well-appointed retirement community further along the QEW in the GTA. The phrase "hidden gem" comes to mind. It's even perfectly situated five minutes outside of downtown Niagara. We think it makes a wonderful place to visit and to be in.
A wonderful location and bright interiors are nice to have, but in the end, your main concern will be the care you get and the attitude of staff. That's what puts River Road over the top. They make you feel special, significant. You know you are their first concern and they are eager to include you in their community.

What people say about this community
My father has been happy for the last few months, and has made a lot of new friends at the home. Great value for money as far as retirement homes go.
Just moved my mother into River Road. I was very impressed with the property, very clean, nice staff and a welcoming environment. A great choice for anyone looking for a place for mom or dad.
My father came [here] at the age of 90 ... At the time he was independent and capable of looking after himself and was treated with respect and dignity by the entire staff
I have found my stay here enjoyable, the staff have been respectful and friendly, the dining room is a delight and the food very good.
