   Email community

This Guelph retirement home is ideal for seniors with family north of Guelph who want to live in a vibrant community where all care requirements are well taken care of. The feel of this and other Schlegel Villages is much less institutional than many other retirement homes in the area. This residence is close to Riverside Park, Guelph Country Club and everything you need in shopping along Woodlawn Road, where the community is located.

A wonderful village on the banks of the Speed

Like other Schlegel retirement villages, Riverside Glen focuses on creating a whole environment where every element enhances well-being; this begins with its innovative architecture, laid out like a small town. This unique approach to a seniors-friendly environment includes an indoor café, general store, hairdresser, library and other outlets. The "village" concept extends to the notion of residents living in neighbourhoods, where every hallway or wing is a close community of people with similar care needs. The care continuum here extends from independent living for adults who require minimal assistance, to dementia care and long term care.

Although many retirement homes listed at Comfort Life feature excellent staff, the care staff at Riverside Glen demonstrates an above-and-beyond attitude apparent to outsiders. The Village newsletter, a monthly publication, demonstrates a deep, rich understanding of residents, and shows care and attention extended to all seniors here. Care is enhanced by the latest research into enhancing senior lifestyle and caring for those with special assistance requirements, from Schlegel's close association with the Research Institute for Aging.

Staff is great. They take lovely care of my mother.
—Matthew Brownlee, family member

Riverside Glen has been my home for over a year now. The Pesky Covid Virus has cramped the normally vibrant activities. However, a dedicated group of team members look out for our every need. Right now, the safest place to be is within these walls as the pandemic rages around outside. I would write more but the activity director is calling me to a special hallway activity.
—Lloyd Hetherington, resident

[The Village] became our new home in April 2018. The transition to retirement living was made very easy by a caring staff, wonderful meals and days full of activities.
—Larry Hamilton, resident
