This care home is ideal for seniors from the Greater Napanee area, or for seniors from out of the area with family near here. No matter where you are coming from, you will feel at home in the beautifully-appointed interiors here. Easy access to the 401 makes it easy for family from anywhere east of Toronto to make a visit. It's the perfect place to retire into an easy-going community of like-minded people, who want to leave the cooking and cleaning to someone else.
The Riverine offers superior senior care in the peaceful small-town setting of Napanee. Here, seniors are well-cared for in a setting that feels more like a luxury condo than anything else. Residents of the Riverine feel like staff is family who go that extra mile to offer daily care. Care includes housekeeping, to bathing assistance and medication administration.
The situation of the residence is also delightfully peaceful, with well-maintained and tastefully landscaped grounds that slope toward the scenic river, surrounded by trees. A pathway leads down to a wonderful vista of the countryside. Nearby there are a collection of local services including several churches, and a variety of health services (physiotherapy, a pharmacy, a dentist's office).

2010, in her 90th year, my Mother joined her sister, 5 years her senior, at the Riverine. Both were very hesitant to leave homes on the Napanee area farms where they raised their families; but the widows who had worked & travelled together in their senior years, happily re-united in this clean, comfortable, and welcoming atmosphere.
Later on, following many visits, 2 ‘younger’ sisters, also widowed, joined them from suburban Kingston. For several years, the 4 siblings enjoyed many crafts, activities, and outings organized by Riverine staff.
Now Mom & her older sister have moved on. They’re missed, but our families will forever appreciate the kind attention Christine, her admin. team, and all nurses & staff wrapped around them during their life in this warm, welcoming community.
We learned, as they helped Mom (and us) through difficult changes: giving up licence & car, moving from her apartment to a full-care room, and relying on a walker, that we had made a wise choice for our Mom.
My Dad is here, they do a great job!
With a variety of regular entertainment geared to people like me, my wonderful new friends here, and these lovely surroundings to relax in, I'm never lonely.
Words can't describe how wonderful life at The Riverine actually is.
The meals are excellent. The accommodations are superb.
