Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

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.

Dementia & Memory Care (definition)
Cost from $5,081

Emma's neighbourhood is designed for residents living with memory loss and offers care and recreation programs specifically designed for those with Alzheimer's Disease and other related forms of dementia. Residents will enjoy private time in either a studio or one-bedroom suite, while also having access to gathering spaces and programs in the Neighbourhood, as well as larger Village programs on Main Street. At Schlegel Villages, we believe there is no “loss of self”, but rather a “change in self” with the progression of dementia. Our Signature Program, LIVING in My Today, supports people living with dementia as they tap into their strengths, express themselves and enjoy the comfort and security of friendships in a place where they experience acceptance and belonging. Our emphasis on developing relationships while understanding the experience of those living with dementia forms the foundation of The Five Pillars of LIVING in My Today: (MEETS) Meaningful and Active Engagement, Enjoyable Mealtimes, Empowered Care Partners, Thoughtful Design and Supportive Approaches. Our dedicated team works with and cares for residents, supporting them to live well each day, regardless of what that day looks like. We’re proud of the foundation we’ve built in LIVING in My Today and the extensive work and collaboration that brought the program to life.
